Spring Into Action: Elevate Your Mental Health with These Must-Try Spring Activities

As your guide to all things vibrant and OhSoColorful, I’ve got a little nudge for you: it’s time to spring into action! Yes, I’m talking about shaking off those winter cobwebs and leaping into the season where flowers dare to bloom. Spring is a season of renewal, growth, and, most importantly, action. It’s when nature awakens, inspiring us to shake off the winter blues and infuse our lives with fresh energy and color.

Now, I know the first quarter of the year can be a bit of a mixed bag. January starts with a bang (or the fizzle of a leftover New Year’s Eve sparkler, depending on your vibe), and then February sneaks in with all the subtlety of a love song played too loud. By March, we’re all wondering where the time went and why our New Year’s resolutions are giving us the side-eye from a corner of our minds.

But guess what? Spring is nature’s way of hitting the refresh button, and it’s our chance to do the same. So, let’s chat about how we’ve been doing and how we can make the rest of 2024 absolutely pop with color, creativity, and, most importantly, joy.

Spring Check-In: How Ya Doing, Boo?

Remember back in January when I talked about manifesting your goals for 2024 using all that neuroscience goodness? Yeah, that was a moment, wasn’t it? We were all pumped and ready to conquer the world, armed with planners, journals, and a truckload of ambition.

So, how’s that going for you? Have you been living your best life, or did February have you feeling like you were starring in your own personal sitcom? No judgment here, trust me. I’ve had my moments where my goals were looking at me like estranged friends at a reunion.

But here’s the beautiful thing about spring—it’s all about new beginnings. Spring is the perfect time to reassess, realign, and reignite that spark. It’s about blooming in your own time and making space for growth. And let’s not forget about adding a dash of OhSoColorful flair to the mix! Maybe it’s time to bring out that OhSoColorful Journal again and add some vibrant new dreams to the pages. Or perhaps decking out your space with Inspirational Stickers that scream “You got this!” in colors so loud, they can’t be ignored.

So tell me, what have you been up to? How are you planning to make this spring your stepping stone to greatness? Drop your thoughts, dreams, and even your bloopers in the comments. Let’s make this a spring to remember, together, with all the color and joy we can muster.

The Promise of Spring

Now, I’m no fortune teller, but I predict that this spring is going to be one for the books. Why? Because we’re going to make it so. Spring is like the universe’s way of giving us a do-over. Missed your shot at those New Year’s resolutions? Spring says, “Here’s round two, with better weather and cherry blossoms!”

This season is all about fresh starts and new beginnings. It’s about shaking off the old and painting our lives with bold, bright, OhSoColorful strokes. As we embrace this season, I want you to ask yourself: What am I looking forward to? What dreams am I ready to chase with the warmth of the sun on my back? Maybe it’s finally starting that creative project you’ve been dreaming about. Or perhaps it’s about giving your mental health a generous dose of TLC with activities that nourish the soul and spark joy.

Up next, I’ve got a list of must-try spring activities that are not only fabulous for your mental health but are guaranteed to add some extra sparkle to your days. Stay tuned, because Atlanta is calling, and trust me, you’ll want to answer.
