There is so much emphasis on starting new habits with the new year, but I find power in making subtle changes when the seasons change. Fall feels like a new year for me, with the end of summer and start of school for the kids. I’m often changing habits for the better in autumn, and spring too, for that matter. With the snow finally melting, I’m outside running, riding bikes, and getting active in the yard.

Here are some “clean” habits to add to your daily life this spring that could improve your health:

1. It’s not summer, but there’s still sun.

We often think of sunscreen on hot summer days before we hit the beach or pool, but we don’t consider it enough year-round. We sometimes shy away from applying sunscreen daily because it can take long to absorb, or leaves an unwanted residue. That’s why Coppertone has developed ClearlySheer Whipped and WaterBabies Whipped. Both absorb quickly, leave skin hydrated and provide SPF 50 protection from UVA/UVB rays so you and your family can stay protected all year round.

2. Take advantage of the outdoors.

As it gets nicer outside, it tends to become easier to keep (or restart) your New Year’s resolution to be more active. Working out does not always have to be in a gym or be strenuous activity. Walk around your neighbourhood, catch the spring blossoms or go on a hike.

For me, it’s taking my Team Diabetes training off the treadmills and getting to do some laps on the trails and pathways along the river. After a long winter off, things don’t always go smoothly so I treat my pain with ALEVE Back & Body Pain. One pill gives me up to 12 hours of relief from muscle pain, body pain and headaches.

3. Take time to meditate.

This may sound daunting, but it only takes a few minutes a day to practice meditation and focus your mind. There are many kinds of meditation and apps you can use to get started. Meditation can help center you before the day begins, or after a long day.

4. Pay attention to your body.

Life is so hectic, and we often ignore obvious symptoms of our body telling us something is off. Many ailments can be treated early and at home so when your body is trying to tell you something, listen up! A common example for women is Bacterial Vaginosis (BV). BV affects so many women, but it’s easy to ignore symptoms like abnormal discharge or an unpleasant odour when life gets busy. CanesBalance is an easy and effective at-home treatment that can relieve unwanted symptoms and prevent future recurrences.

Spring has sprung, and I hope you’ll join me in adopting new healthy habits as the weather warms and days get longer. Tell me what habit you’d like to add to your routine.
