Spring Cleaning: 6 Ways to Improve Your Health
Spring into better health!
There’s no better way to get a fresh start to the season than by doing a little spring cleaning for your health. Spring is all about new beginnings and growth. Take advantage of the beautiful weather and extra daylight and make positive changes for your mental and physical well-being. Need a little motivation? Here are our top six tips to spring clean your health:
1. Add seasonal fruits and vegetables to your meals for extra nutrition.
As the weather continues to get warmer, you’ll find a huge variety of delicious fruits and vegetables to enjoy. When you buy produce that’s in season, you’ll enjoy better flavors and better prices! Avoid pesticides and genetic engineering by choosing organic produce.
2. Don’t be afraid to add “gardening” to your workouts.
Give your garden a springtime makeover by tidying up flower beds and prepping them for new plants and seeds. Caring for your garden is a great way to get exercise without being stuck indoors. You might be surprised at how much you can work out your muscles, just by standing, bending, and squatting! For days when you feel a little sore, try this helpful essential oil remedy using two exclusive oils from the Aroma Share Club:
INFLAMMATION FIGHTER FOOT SOAK
4 oz. PET plastic jar
12 drops Turmeric Essential Oil
5 drops Spikenard Essential Oil
In the jar, add half the salt and the essential oils. Put lid on tightly and shake well 50 times. Open and add remaining salt, re-lid and shake again. Add 1⁄4 cup of mix to a warm foot tub of water. Soak feet for 20 minutes, whenever being treated for inflammation. Can also be used in the bath or shower. While showering, sprinkle 1⁄4 cup on the shower floor with the drain plugged.
3. Healthy soil = happy plants.
After several cold winter months, the soil in your garden might need a little extra TLC. Set your garden up for success with a little spring cleaning — for its soil! Try Bloomin Minerals Soil Revitalizer for a one-step quick fix.

4. Declutter and de-stress.

5. Achieve better health with a community

6. Embrace positivity
Spring cleaning isn’t just about literally cleaning your home — it’s also about giving and receiving positivity. Negativity is distracting. It’s so easy to concentrate on setbacks or comparing yourself to others. Don’t let that weigh you down. Make a list of activities you like and commit to checking off at least one item each week. The more you focus on the great things in your life, the more you’ll find yourself appreciating and enjoying them.
This month, worry less about spring cleaning in a traditional sense. Hone in on self-care, getting great nutrition, and staying active. There’s always time to clean your home later!
