Mental Health Self-Care Ideas for Spring

Spring Mental Health. It’s Springtime! The birds are singing, the flowers are blooming, and all around us we can feel the energy of fresh beginnings, hope, and joy. While the Spring season provides many positive feelings and vivid colors, there is also the potential for new challenges and worse mental health. Just like with all seasons, physical and mental health is an important part of staying healthy and balanced. Here are some ideas for mental health self-care during the Spring season:

Spring Self Care

  1. Practicing daily gratitude is an important idea to consider. Springtime is a great time to practice gratitude. Every day, take time to be thankful for the specific things in your life or to appreciate the simple moments. This can be a great way to boost your mood and reset your perspective.

  2. Get Outdoors: As the days get longer and the weather starts to get nice, take advantage of the great waves of energy and get outdoors. Even something as simple as a walk around the block or sitting in the park can do wonders for your mental health.

  3. Set Healthy Goals: Habits that form during the Spring season can stay with you throughout the rest of the year. Take some time to reflect on your goals and make sure they are healthy and achievable. For example, work on creating specific and measurable goals such as “walk 30 minutes a day,” or “eat 5 servings of vegetables each day.”

  4. Reconnect With Old Friends: Spending time with old friends can be a great way to find joy, reduce stress, and make positive new memories. Take this time to reconnect with people you used to know or people you haven’t seen in a while.

  5. Try A New Hobby or Activity: Springtime is the perfect time to kick off a new hobby or try an activity you’ve been wanting to do. Research shows that trying something new releases endorphins which can combat anxiety and depression.

  6. Take A Mental Health Day: If you’re feeling overwhelmed with stress, take a mental health day. Mental health days are important in making sure we take care of ourselves and practice healthy self-care. You can spend this day doing something you love or something that relaxes you.
