Are you ready for Spring? I am! Since Spring is right around the corner, here are some of my favorite ways to celebrate Spring
Can you beleive that Spring is officially only 4 days away? I’m always amazing at how time seems to fly by, and this year, I’m thankful the warm weather is coming soon! We had some crazy snow days in December, but the weather has changed already and i’t 60 degrees here today (totally not typical for out area!).
Spring is always an exciting time since I love seeing everything turn green! I’m not crazy about the seasonal allergies Spring brings, but I’m always ready to spend more time outside, start gardening, and read in my hammock.
If you’re looking for some great ways to celebrate Spring this month, here are some ways to get ready for warmer weather!
1. Plan some adventures
One of the things I love most about Spring and even January and February is planning out my year ahead. It’s a lot of fun to look at our schedules and set up some fun races, bike rides, hikes in the mountains, and weekends out of town.
Scheduling races and events helps to renew my passion for fitness and styaing active, and it gives me goals to work toward through the year. Plus, planning well ahead in advance helps you stay on top of preparing for those events with travel and supplies.
Our bodies and minds need regular breaks from work so we can play and enjoy life, so plan some adventures!

2. Get outside
Make sure that with the weather warming up you make time to spend outdoors! If you have been indoors a lot through the winter due to weather, it’s nice when the weather warms up so you can play outside. I am no great about getting outside during the winter months since I don’t do a lot of winter sports, so once the weather warms up I’m itching to get out in the sunshine.
If you can, try to find some outdoor yoga classes so you can spend time outside and relax! prAna has a neat beginner’s guide to yoga up on their site so you know how to get started even if you’ve never gone to a class before. I’m planning on hosting some outdoor yoga classes in our local parks this summer like I did last year. It’s nice!
3. Declutter your space
You might be thinking “how is decluttering fun?”. For me, there is something oddly soothing about getting rid of clutter. When my house is a mess, I can’t think straight or focus very well. When our space is full of things we don’t need, it gets overwhelming, and it feels good to let go of that extra stuff.
“Spring cleaning” might seem cliche, but there really is something to it. If you haven’t de-cluttered your space in a while, this is a good time to do it, starting with your closet. Clear out the clothes that don’t fit and things you don’t find joy in anymore. When I need new clothing, I always try to make room for the new by clearing out the old first!
4. Get some fresh clothes
While you’re clearing out your space and getting through your closet, make some room for some new clothes for Spring and Summer. It’s exciting to add fresh styles to your wardrobe, and new clothing is a fun way to reward yourself for sticking to your workouts through the winter.
If you want to freshen up your wardrobe for Spring, prAna has some fun clothing! Not only is prAna’s clothing cute, most are sustainably sourced, fair trade, and made with organic fabrics and dyes. prAna sent me the Liana Sweater and the Mantra Pant to try out and review this month!
The Mantra Pants are super soft and comfortable, but still professional looking enough for work. These amazing pants are made from hemp and recycled polyester. These pants are relaxed fit and straight cut, so they are roomy but they still fit well. They are a little bit long so I need to get them hemmed, but they are super comfortable!
The Liana Sweater is made of a blend of hemp and organic cotton, and is the perfect light layer for warmer days. It has a fun hem and it’s also beautiful layered over a colorful tank top! The Liana sweater is made roomy so it layers nicely.
