Four Tips to Rejuvenate the Mind, Body and Spirit this Spring

Submitted by: Janet Schwab- Elements Therapeutic Massage

The spring season is often a time for fresh starts on projects around the home, job searches, hobbies and more. A simple way to jump start the season of new beginnings is to connect your mind, body and spirit for overall health and wellness.

Spring is often an exciting time of year, but changes and new projects can also bring on stress. Taking a few minutes for mental health and relaxation each day can go a long way towards uplifting your spirits and motivating you to tackle new challenges.

The following tips can help rejuvenate the mind, body, and spirit:

  • Wake Up with a Dose of Mental Health and Physical Relaxation

    • Clear the Mind and Relax: Before rolling out of bed, take a few long, deep breathes to clear out thoughts from the night before and prepare your mind for a productive, stress-free day. Focus on the positive aspects of what you plan on accomplishing for your day.

    • Balance Your Body, Balance Your Life: To get your day started off on the right foot, begin your morning routine with some quiet meditative and muscle relaxation time. In as little as five minutes, you can loosen your back, neck and leg muscles with common yoga moves such as child’s pose, downward dog and standing tree.

  • Power Down at Night:

    • Turn off all Technology: At least an hour before going to bed, make it a habit to turn off the television, phone, e-mail, Internet, social media, music, etc. Also ensure that you receive between seven to nine hours of sleep each night.

  • Refuel with Friends and Fitness:

    • Find time for a weekly escape: Work, family and personal everyday commitments can leave your mental tank empty and craving some “me” time. Refuel your tank by picking one stress relieving activity that you enjoy and schedule it on your calendar on a weekly basis. This could be as simple as reading a book/magazine for an hour, arranging a coffee date with a friend, volunteering or participating in your favorite hobby.

    • Add fitness into your weekly routine: Physical activity not only helps your body’s fitness levels, but it also is an excellent source for preventing and managing stress. Whether it’s taking your dog for a 20-minute walk, going for a jog, biking with the kids, taking fitness classes or swimming laps, consistent activity is good for relieving stress in your muscles and body, but also your daily mental stress.

  • Restore and Revitalize:

    • Consider massage therapy: Massage can keep your mind and body aligned and working in sync, monthly massage therapy sessions are important to restoring and reinvigorating your overall health and well-being. Massage therapy addresses a variety of health conditions, the most prevalent being stress-related tension.
