20+ Ways to Boost Your Health & Spring into Action this Season

This season at Vibrant Health, we’re all about “Springing into Action” — inspiring you to take charge of your wellness from your workday to workouts. Why does this matter, anyway? We want you to be able to power through feeling your best, most vibrant self this spring (inside and out). To help you get started, we’re sharing 20+ ways to boost your health and take action

Your Spring Health Focus: Have a Healthier Workday 

We spend most of our time at work. And whether you’re working remotely or in the office, having a healthy workday impacts the rest of your lifestyle. Here are some ideas to spring into action:

●     Start Your Day with a Nutritious Breakfast: Our Blender Bottle makes it super convenient to pack a smoothie for on-the-go work fuel! Browse these recipes for some inspiration. 

●     Take Breaks: Take mini-breaks throughout your day to stretch, move your body or take some deep breaths. Plus, did you know research shows taking a mindful lunch break can enhance your wellbeing? Win, win. 

●     Pack Energizing Snacks: Don’t let yourself get hungry at your desk, as that’s when those pesky cravings can kick in. Pack energizing snacks such as trail mix, veggies with hummus, or Energy Bites to stay nourished throughout the day.  

●     Stay hydrated: Don’t forget to stay hydrated! Keep a reusable water bottle by your desk and refill throughout the day. Feel free to add a squeeze of fresh lemon, some cucumber, or basil to spruce up your H2O this season.

Your Spring Health Focus: Move More 

In honor of National Move More Month, April is the perfect chance to get your body moving and establish an exercise routine that works for you. Ready to move more? Here are some ideas to spring into action:

●     Walk it Out: April 6th is National Walking Day, a reminder to walk as much as you can — whether it’s walking to work, opting to park in the spot furthest from a store’s entrance, or meeting up with a friend to go on a walk around the block. Consider getting a FitBit or simple pedometer to count your steps each day so you can set goals for yourself and stay motivated to move! 

●     Support Your Joints: As you strive to move your body more, be sure to support your joint health. Our Joint Vibrance naturally supports healthy bones and joints so you can walk, run, hike, lift, swim and move with ease. 

●     Try Something New: If your exercise routine is becoming mundane, it may be time to try something new! Shake up your usual workout with something different — like hot yoga, dance, or joining a run club. 

●     Sign up for a Road Race: Signing up for a road race can be a great way to stay inspired, especially if you enjoy exercising with a group of people. Get your friends and family involved and make an event out of it! 

Your Spring Health Focus: Reduce Your Stress Levels 

April is Stress Awareness Month, focusing on strategies to better cope with stressors. Looking to reduce your stress levels? Here are some ideas to spring into action: 

●     Incorporate Yoga into Your Routine: Get your yoga flow on! Not only does it help you slow down and become more flexible, but studies show that practicing yoga contributes to reducing stress, anxiety, and depression.  

●     Book a Wellness Retreat: Need an escape from the daily hustle-bustle? Head out for a weekend wellness or yoga retreat to have some mindful R & R time just for yourself. 

●     Look into Your Diet: There are a number of tools to help you focus on managing stress levels, and your diet is a big component. Cut back on processed foods, sugar, alcohol, and excess caffeine, and opt for essential nutrients to help your body combat stress. This includes complex carbohydrates, proteins, Omega 3s, Vitamin A & B, and magnesium. 

●     Unplug from Technology: Are you on your phone all day? It may be time to take some intentional breaks from technology. After all, research shows that those who constantly check electronic devices — including social media, texting, and emails — experience more stress. Here’s how you can start a digital detox to unplug a bit more this season! 

Your Spring Health Focus: Clean Up Your Diet

Does your diet need a reboot? If you’d like to focus on developing healthier eating habits this season, here are some ideas to spring into action:

●     Eat the Rainbow: Include a rainbow of colors into your diet by incorporating seasonal spring produce such as snap peas, strawberries, asparagus, and greens. Scoop up these in-season items during your next trip to the grocery store or farmer’s market! 

●     Include Quality Superfood Supplements: As you strive to clean up your diet, consider including quality superfood powders you can trust, such as our Spectrum Vibrance (a 

convenient way to get a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables) or Maximum Vibrance (for an energizing protein boost to tackle your day)! 

●     Opt for a Plant-based Diet: Include a variety of plant-based foods such as fruits, vegetables, healthy fats, whole grains, lentils, and beans. Here are some practical ways to start a plant-based, vegetarian diet

●     Try a Cleanse: If you’re considering going on a cleanse this spring, be sure to do so mindfully in a way that feels good to you. Here are some best practices for starting a cleanse

Your Spring Health Focus: Prioritize Your Self-Care 

Are you making time for yourself this season? Self-care is an essential part of wellness, and just in case you need a reminder: it’s most definitely not selfish. Ready to step up your self-care game? Here are some ideas to spring into action:

●     Start a New Wellness Routine: Take some time this season to develop a wellness routine that works for you! Perhaps this includes starting a morning gratitude practice, meditation, or journaling. 

●     Get Your Beauty Sleep: Sleep and wellness go hand in hand, so it’s about time you get the rest your body needs. Here are ten steps to develop healthy sleep habits

●     DIY Green Superfood Facial: We love our superfoods here at Vibrant Health, so much so that we actually created a Green Superfood Face Mask! Try this DIY mask — packed with essential beautifying ingredients like spirulina, chlorella, and green tea extract — for the ultimate self-care treat. 

●     Slow Down: Know that it’s OK to slow down and take care of yourself. Go ahead and give yourself a break so you can relax, restore and focus on yourself

 Your Spring Health Focus: Spring Clean Your Life

‘Tis the season for spring cleaning, and we’re not just talking about your home. Ready to clear the clutter and create space for new energy? Here are some ideas to spring into action:

●     Declutter Your Home: Take some time this month for some good old-fashioned spring cleaning by dusting, organizing, and getting rid of old clothes or belongings that no longer serve you. After all, the energy in your home can directly impact your mental space too. Here are some simple feng shui techniques to get started! 

●     Opt for Clean Beauty Supplies: Just as important as what you put in your body is what you put on it. Choose clean beauty supplies free from harmful toxins, and when in doubt, make your own beauty products at home

●     Clear Your Mind: Between work, life, and family stuff, you likely have a million things on your mind which can become overwhelming. Clear your head by starting your day with a morning “brain dump” — jotting down everything on your mind so you can let it go and free up some mental headspace.
