Spring is finally in the air. Flowers are blooming, bees are buzzing and birds are chirping. Whether or not spring is your favorite time of year, here are 5 ways you can celebrate the season of new beginnings:

1. Plant Flowers

Flowers are a great way to make any space look brighter, and they also bring fresh fragrance with them. Flowers can be planted outside or in a flowerpot inside!

2. Do Your Homework Outside

Go to Sweetheart Circle, lay a blanket down and enjoy the weather before it becomes too hot to bear.

Bonus: you’ll be getting some sun, so you have put in less work on your summer tan.

3. Roll Your Windows Down When Driving

Turn off your AC, blare your music, let the wind whip through your hair and enjoy the weather that spring has to offer. However, if a March storm is brewing, do not attempt to tough it out. Roll them up and wait until the storm goes away.

4. Do Some Spring Cleaning

Doing some spring cleaning will make you feel better and more productive. You will clear out more space and with less clutter comes more relaxation.

Here’s a spring cleaning tip: Make three separate piles when organizing your things: a “keep” pile, a “trash” pile and a “donate” pile. This way you know what goes where, and it is much easier to organize the things you do want to keep.

5. Eat Some Fruit

Eating fruit that is in season in the spring is a perfect way to celebrate. According to the USDA, fruits like apples, bananas, pineapples and strawberries are in season during the spring. You can make a smoothie or eat these delectable treats by themselves.

Weather that is not too hot an not too cold, chirping birds, more sunlight and blooming flowers are all reasons to celebrate spring! Spring is the season of rebirth, and it is the perfect time to enjoy yourself and the season.
