First Day of Spring

On Monday, March 20, 2023, at 5:24 p.m. EDT, the first day of spring will bring in a new season of growth, renewal, and transformation. It is a great time to set intentions and embrace new beginnings with a renewed sense of energy. Take this time to reflect on your life and embrace the changes to come. As the days get longer, plant seeds now, both literally and metaphorically, that you want to watch grow over the course of the year.

The first day of spring, also known as the spring equinox, is a reminder that change is constant and that growth and transformation are part of the natural cycle. This is a time for fresh starts and new potential for growth and abundance in all parts of life.

Celebrating the Equinox Outdoors

Spring can be a great opportunity to spend more time outdoors and connect with nature. Getting in touch with the peace and beauty of nature can help when practicing mindfulness or  meditation, hiking or working out, or just connecting with yourself or friends over a picnic. You could also do some gardening, a perfect activity for this day. Being in the sun, on the grass, or even just getting your hands in some dirt has proven benefits to your mood and health.

Out with the Old  

Another great way to honor the coming of spring is to give your home a good cleaning. Getting rid of things that no longer serve you, decluttering your living or work space, and going through your closet are great ways to make space for new things in your life. Consider donating items to give them a new purpose with someone who will enjoy them. For getting rid of heavier energy, consider smudging your home or booking a space clearing ceremony.

Focus on Growth

Take the day to visualize and think about your plans for the future, your intentions, and what you want to bring into your life. You may want to create a vision board, make an entry in a journal, or treat yourself to some self care. Use fresh, seasonal ingredients to make yourself a delicious meal. 

In Closing

As spring arrives, it brings with it an opportunity for growth and renewal. Reflect on what you want to achieve, welcome change, and sow the seeds for the future. Embrace the natural beauty of the outdoors, practice mindfulness, and cherish new beginnings. Remember that change is a constant force in life, and by embracing it with an open mind and a sense of wonder, you can unlock a world of opportunities for growth and transformation.
