It’s that time of year again – filled with blooming flowers, sunshine, and a renewed sense of possibility. Whether it’s going out on a spontaneous weekend getaway, throwing a beach BBQ, or enjoying sunrise yoga at your local park, it’s the perfect time of year to freshen up your routine and have an adventure.
Below, we’ve added five of our favorite ways to refresh and reinvigorate our lives – and particularly our practices – this time of year!
1. Try out a new prop
2. Indulge in a new outfit
Same goes for clothing – with a whole selection of brightly colored OMgirl fashions in a range of beautiful dyes sure to put a spring in your step, even we have trouble keeping our hands off it!
3. Clean eating and trying out new recipes
Out of the cold and cozy winter, and into the bright and sunny warmth! Eating light, produce filled and low carb meals can be a great way to feel like your optimum springtime self.
4. Try a new kind of yoga or take a class from a new teacher
Getting stuck in the same routines can extend to your practice too! Granted, keeping with a positive routine and feeling stuck in a routine are very different things. But, trying out a new type of yoga or a new teacher can be a great way to explore new perspectives and ways of practicing – maybe ways that you didn’t even expect to realize!
5. Take a moment to stop and relax
It’s easy to always be in motion and keep yourself moving. Give yourself a gift and slow down for a moment away from screens (all screens), and sit down on a Zafu, on a mat, or simply with a good book. Taking just a few moments when you’re able to relax and refresh can make a huge positive impact on both physical and mental clarity and peace. Not to mention that it’s just a lovely feeling to relax and take a moment to enjoy life!
