Spring Transition

After running in 10-degree weather last week, I am looking forward to thawing out and transitioning to spring. I truly understand this year more than ever the idea of “spring fever”! After being cooped up inside… even if it was by a beautiful roaring fire, I am ready to breathe fresh air and feel the sun on my face. I am sensing that even the wild animals are feeling the same yearnings. I have begun to hear the robins sing their beautiful morning wake-up song and have witnessed the deer lounging in the leaves while basking in the sun. In my home, my internal barometer begins to think about cleaning, organizing and throwing open the windows to allow the soul of our homes to breathe deeply after a long winter slumber. It is as if our home, body, mind and soul are ready to transition from hibernation to the aliveness and renewal energy of spring. Maybe, the age-old tradition of spring-cleaning came from the natural instinct that awakens in all of nature’s creations, including us.

Spring Transition

Let’s look at some ways to invigorate and refresh your home, body, mind and spirit during the transition to spring!


Throw open the windows and let your home breathe a deep sigh of relief! This allows old, stuffy and potentially toxic air to move out and fresh air to circulate through your home, refreshing your space and rejuvenating you!


Tune into your body and determine if you need to adjust your intake and output. Spring and summer are just around the corner. With them comes the shedding of layers that might have helped hide some extra “comfort food” pounds over the winter. Sometimes winter promotes a sedentary lifestyle that can decrease your energy. Begin to flow with the rhythm of the season and make an effort to move for at least 20 minutes a day. Reduce your intake of processed products and include nutrient-dense real food in everything you put into your body.


Take time to notice the transition of the natural environment around you. It is amazing to truly witness the awe-inspiring dance of winter gracefully gliding into spring. As each new bud begins to blossom, take time to breathe in the sensations that touch each of your senses. This will help curb the chaos and connect you with your natural state of balance and calm.


Listen to the cacophony of natural spring songs that tickle your ears and can uplift your spirit. Being aware and tuning in to birds chirping or water beginning to trickle from its frozen state are a natural way to raise your vibration or energy level. Take the time to allow nature to sing to your soul and help you soar.

The transition from winter to spring is the perfect time to evaluate these four pillars and determine what areas need your attention so that you can begin living your inspired life!
