With winter in the rearview mirror, it’s time to put single-digit temperatures and snow squalls behind us and spring forward into a new season. Check out these spring wellness tips to help get you and your family prepared for those glorious, sunshiny days ahead!

Sign up for a local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture)

The benefits of joining a CSA include access to local, seasonal food directly from a farmer. You can think of CSAs as the original food subscription service that Blue Apron or HelloFresh are known for today: consumers purchase a share (aka a membership or subscription) and in exchange receive a box that can contain seasonal produce, meat, eggs and cheese each week. Depending on your local farm, you may receive a standardized box or shop the farm store and fill your box at your discretion. A CSA gives you access to fresh, local food and provides an opportunity to try new food in your diet!

Spring Clean Your Workspace

‘Tis the season for spring cleaning! Many start this task within their homes and vehicles, however, people overlook cleaning another critical location: their workspace. Having a clean, organized workspace is beneficial for many reasons, including preventing the spread of germs and reducing stress. Spray and dust surfaces such as your keyboard, phone, mouse and desk (do this weekly, not just in the spring). In short, the organization reduces stress and anxiety by giving you peace of mind because you don’t have to panic when asked where an important paper is – it’s filed away in a labeled folder.

Protect Your Skin

The sun on your face and skin can be a welcome respite after months of cold, harsh temperatures. The use of sunscreen is imperative no matter what the season, however. Springtime in New England signals the return of ticks, bees, horse flies, and mosquitoes to name a few. Wearing bug or tick spray and longer sleeved pants or shirts can help prevent bites and stings. If you get bit or stung, remove the stinger and wash the affected area with mild soap and water. If you happen to have trouble breathing, swelling, dizziness, hives, or nausea you should seek emergency care immediately.

After months of snow, ice, and darkness – thoughts of strolling through the local farmers market and dipping your toes in the water bring excitement to New Englanders of all ages. It is important to note the distinct seasons and changes that occur throughout them to prevent accidents or illness’. Follow our tips and tricks to ensure your wellness this spring!
