Ideas and Inspiration

Be the best version of you this spring

Are you having an end-of-winter crisis? Can’t remember what your body actually looks like under those tracksuit pants, bulky jumpers and ugh boots? Well, it’s time to shed the winter layers – literally and mentally – and shape up for spring with our inspirational tips.

  • As the weather warms up, it’s time to celebrate and embrace the start of a new season. These small changes to your winter routine will help you gain the confidence to become the best version of you this spring! Here’s how:
  • Visit your beautician

    It’s time to de-fuzz, rehydrate your dry winter skin, and groom your nails for upcoming spring parties. If you want to splash out and treat yourself, book in for a total body overhaul at a day spa (take a girlfriend to make it extra-fun), or if you’re pressed for time, spread your appointments out over the few weeks before spring officially begins. Alternatively, DIY at home – gather items like a foot spa, loofah, exfoliant, wax kit, and nail polish and start beautifying!
  • Exercise with a friend

    Getting outdoors to exercise during the chilliest months of the year can be torturous, we know! But once the weather is warmer and the sun shines more often, it’s easy to grab a girlfriend and have a chat while you power-walk at the park. Making it a fun, social occasion means that you’ll definitely turn up, and while you’re mid-gossip, you might actually forget you’re exercising! Group motivation really works, too, so if you’re keen for a serious session, join a fitness class that meets outdoors to work out together.
  • Treat yourself to something new

    Material goods aren’t the essence of life, but they can give you a little pick-me-up, and there’s nothing wrong with self-cheer! A fun new accessory – like a funky bag, scarf, belt, or a pair of heels that are seriously on-trend – will help to instantly update your look for spring. You don’t have to spend a lot to achieve a wardrobe makeover, either – chain stores do excellent versions of designer pieces these days.
  • Take up a fresh interest

    A new season is the perfect time to explore self-improvement, as well as set fresh goals and challenges. Taking up a new hobby or learning a different skill can really boost your feelings of self-confidence. Devoting some time each week to your new interest is an excellent way to de-stress, too. So become ‘a more interesting you’ by joining that book club, learning how to horse ride, doing a blogging course, or enrolling in those Italian cooking classes.
  • Eat better, feel better

    Even though it’s tempting to gorge yourself on comfort foods during winter, becoming a little more disciplined with your eating habits can improve how you feel on the inside, and look on the outside. Take advantage of all the delicious fresh produce that is in season for spring. Become a regular at your local farmers’ market and ditch processed junk in favour of nourishing home-made food that’s free of nasties. Fueling your body and mind with nutritious meals is guaranteed to make you feel great!
