Coming out of long winter and spring can be exhausting and full of shedding lots of clothing layers, getting over colds and getting to know your fun summery self again! Spring is often called the renewal season, which basically means, out with the old and in with the new. Here are 3 ways to ease into the summer months and make your transition as smooth as possible!
Declutter your wardrobe
Marie Kondo writes extensively about her minimalistic approach to organising her closet. She shares folding techniques and ways in which you can reduce your seasonal pieces. The idea of having an emotional attachment to each piece of clothing in your closet can seem overwhelming. Let’s face it at the end of the day – they are just clothes. I have another approach – search your closet for pieces you haven’t worn in the last two-three months. Take them out and place in a pile called “others need clothing too”. Then, re-organise your closet, folding each piece nicely – as suggested by Miss Kondo. This will allow space for fresh summery additions. If you closet space doesn’t look like Sarah J. Parkers’ in Sex and the City, then you will probably want to store your winter clothes away. Don’t forget to sort through all the pieces first.
Hydrate, Hydrate, and Hydrate!
Climate change is bringing along quite the weather, for one: hot summers! No time like the present to start giving your body all the liquids it needs. Fresh juices, smoothies, water, nut milks are all ways to experiment and make hydrating yourself a fun activity. Invest in a cool functional water bottle that will make you want to get up and refill it as often as possible. Start looking at small functional juicers so you are ready to juice your favourite fruits and veggies this summer. It’s not secret that I am huge celery juice fan – have you tried it?
Have a party!
Celebrate saying goodbye to an awful dreary winter by having your best people around juicing celery juice and showing off your well maintained closet. Pick a fun healthy theme (for example, Farmer’s market potluck) and watch the magic happen.
