Why you should walk outside this spring

Spring has sprung!


Spring is a season of renewal and growth, with longer days, warmer weather, and blooming flowers. Despite the muddiness that comes with spring, the sight of new growth and the sounds of chirping birds can lift our spirits and remind us of the beauty of nature. This is why walking outside in the spring can have benefits to your wellbeing!

Here are 6 ways that walking outside in the spring can be good for you.


Improves Physical Health

Walking is a low-impact exercise that can help improve cardiovascular health, reduce the risk of chronic diseases like diabetes, and improve overall fitness levels. Walking outside in the spring can also help you get the vitamin D that your body needs from sunlight exposure.


Reduces Stress

Walking outside in nature can help reduce stress and improve mood. The fresh air and natural surroundings can help calm the mind and reduce anxiety.


Boosts Mental Health

Walking outside can also have a positive impact on mental health. Being in nature and getting some sunlight can help improve mood, reduce symptoms of depression, and improve cognitive function.


Enhances Social Connections

Walking outside can also be a social activity. You can walk with a friend or join a walking group to meet new people and build connections.


Increases Creativity

Walking outside can also stimulate creativity. Being in nature can help you clear your mind, reduce distractions, and spark new ideas.


Helps with Sleep

Regular exercise, such as walking, can help improve sleep quality and reduce insomnia. Walking outside in the spring can also help regulate your body's natural circadian rhythms, which can help you sleep better at night.


Walking outside in the spring can have many benefits for your physical and mental health. It's a simple and enjoyable way to improve your wellbeing and enjoy the beauty of the season.

5 Ways to Celebrate Mother's Day

The best part about May is that we get to acknowledge the wonderful women in our lives; our mothers and other significant women who we otherwise might take for granted. And, the best way to celebrate these amazing women is to spend the day with them! If you haven't made plans yet, don't worry, it's not too late.


Here are 5 ways you can celebrate Mother's Day this year.



1. Buy your mom flowers

You can't go wrong with flowers! You can buy a lovely bouquet of spring flowers or even a potted plant for your mom. Make sure to write a heartfelt card to make it even more special! If flowers aren't her thing, you can buy her seeds and get started on planting a vegetable garden.


2. Bake or cook your mom's favourite dish

Encourage your mom to take a break from cooking on Mother's Day by cooking her favourite dish. If you aren't much of a cook that is okay! Why not support a local restaurant or business? You can put in the order for your mom and ask them to deliver the dish directly to your mom. It's the perfect day to spoil your mom!


3. Make a homemade gift

Remember that quilt or sewing project that you never quite finished? Or that scrapbook that needs some final stickers? This is the perfect time to finish it up for your mom! Get your kids or grandkids involved by having them make homemade drawings or cards.


4. Plan a fun creative surprise

Get your whole family involved and plan a surprise for your mom. If you’re a musical family, surprise her with live music and song. If you’re poetic and theatrical, write her a heartfelt poem and/or perform a play just for her. If you're crafty, make some fun posters or banners to brighten up your mom's day. I am sure your mom will appreciate your effort and love!


5. Tea time on a video call

If your mom is tech-savvy and lives out of town, schedule a video call to have a special tea time chat. Take this time to reconnect with your mom by reminiscing on childhood memories and on happy lighthearted memories. Most importantly don't forget to tell her how much you love her and appreciate her! Words of kindness and appreciation can go a long way!


Mothers are incredible and deserve to be celebrated all year round, but especially in May, at Mother’s Day. Comment below and share with us how you're going to celebrate your mom. We hope you have a lovely Mother's Day!


Happy Mother’s Day to all of the special mothers, grandmothers, and great grandmothers out there!
