"Spring: a lovely reminder of how beautiful change can be." ― Unknown
Spring is here. Yippee! That means it’s a perfect time for you to spring! The definition of spring is: to come into being by growth. Are there particular areas in your life where you’d like to grow?
The arrival of Spring can wake, nurture, and revitalize you. How often does your Spring come? It doesn’t need to come only once a year but since it’s here why not take full advantage of it?

Having a strong immune system is what helps keep you healthy. When it’s weakened you are susceptible to all sorts of health issues, including cancer. Adopting a healthy lifestyle can help improve and support your immune system.
One thing you can do to support a healthy immune system is consume foods high in antioxidants. Antioxidants fight free radicals which damage healthy cells. The mutations they cause can lead to tumor growth and cancer.

Besides being so much fun to grow, sprouts are really good for you. What are sprouts? They are the edible germinated seeds of beans, legumes, nuts, grains, and vegetables. Some of the most common types are lentil, mung bean, broccoli, pea, alfalfa, and clover.
Sprouts are a very affordable food source and pack a lot of punch. They are high in water content making them easy to digest. And, they are super nutritious!

The way we begin each day has a big impact on how our day goes. Are affirmations part of your daily routine? They are REALLY beneficial for your mind and can help set the tone for your day.
The mind is a powerful thing. We don't always realize the impact our thoughts can have. Making affirmations and repeating them over and over can change the way you think, the way you feel, and the way you act. Thoughts create feelings which initiate action that in turn creates results.

Changing is hard! If you’ve ever tried to eat a healthier diet, start an exercise routine, managing chronic stress, improve the amount and quality of sleep, or make any other positive lifestyle changes you know what I’m talking about. It’s so easy to fall back into old habits and behavior patterns. It’s easy to get started but much more difficult to follow through.
If you’ve tried again and again without success, you’re not alone. Being unable to create new, healthy habits is all too common. Changing how we do things and have done them for years is REALLY difficult.
