Finally, after months of dark, cold and snowy months, we can say goodbye to the cold Winter weather and embrace the warmer rays of sunshine that comes with Spring. We love Summer and we can’t wait for that July heat to arrive but in the meantime, there are so many reasons why Spring is such a great season! You can wake up every morning to the sound of birds singing, the spring showers which are allowing the flowers to start springing up and the brighter days are just a few of the things we love about this season.
Here are ten reasons why we LOVE Spring:
1. Ditching the Winter layers
We can start packing away our heavy winter coats and layers and start wearing bright and colourful Spring outfits. Step away from dreary dark colors and commit to a standout outfit that includes a bright statement dress and a chic little bag. Throw on a pair of white sneakers to keep the focus on those bright colors.
2. Getting back into the Garden
It is time to roll up your sleeves and start getting back into the garden ! Spring is the perfect season to start planting flowers, vegetables such as salads, herbs, kale, broccoli and so many more delicious items ! If you are new to the gardening world, head down to your local gardencentre where they will give you all the best advice and keep you on track.
3. Having a Spring in your step
After being cooped up indoors for what seems like eternity, or almost freezing to death every time you go out, it’s great being able to enjoy going out more. It’s warmer, it’s sunnier, and you can enjoy sitting outdoors. Going for walks is more fun, and we also love being able to have a coffee at a table outside. We are bursting with energy so it no coincidence that the first day of spring is also the International Day of Happiness
4. Spring Cleaning
We know what you are thinking, spring cleaning shouldn’t be a reason to love Spring but you know what ? It is the perfect time to have a big clear out and if you need a little inspiration then check out Marie Kondo on Netflix. She will give you all the pointers needed to make your home perfect !
5. Getting out and about
Yay…We can start getting outside and moving again ! We can enjoy nature and the beautiful surroundings by taking long walks by the lake, hiking in the mountains or just even wandering around the countryside. If you are feeling extra motivated, you can start running again as marathon season is just around the corner.
6. Opening windows again
There is nothing better than opening your windows and balcony doors to let that beautiful Spring breeze freshen up your house or appartement. You can sit on your sofa and enjoy your morning coffee whilst listening to the birds tweet. We can’t think of a better way to start your day.
7. Cherry Blossoms
Cherry blossoms are such a sign of Spring and you will see photos of them popping up all over instagram. Head to your local park, pack a picnic and surround yourself by these beautiful pink flowers.
8. Mother’s Day
If you are a mum, then this is also such a great season as you know you are going to get spoilt on your special day !!You can’t ever go wrong by offering your mum a little spa day or even a gorgeous bouquet of flowers.
9. Eating Healthier
Now that Winter is gone, you will feel a little more motivated to mix up your diet. There are so many delicious new seasonal foods such as asparagus, strawberries, artichokes and peas to add beautiful fresh colours to your dishes.
10. Recharging your batteries
Spring is also a great time for long weekends away, between Bank holidays and Easter, there are so many opportunities to back your bags and visit a new city, go for a spa weekend or even just head up to the countryside and disconnect from your daily routine.
There are so many other reasons to love Spring but these are our top favourite. The best thing about Spring is that it means Summer is around the corner, right?
