Blossoming Into Better Health This Spring

As the weather continues to get warmer and the days get longer, seize the moment and take charge of your health.In light of World Health Day, the health experts at Ridgecrest Regional Hospital are here to share some tips to help your health to flourish this spring!

Supporting Your Physical Health

With the pandemic sweeping the globe for the past year, most of us have spent a lot of additional time indoors and probably being less active than usual. Fortunately, with the turn of the spring season, there’s more of an opportunity to take advantage of the great outdoors to get up and get active!

Some fun spring activities that can get your whole family moving include:

  • Starting a vegetable garden
  • Taking nature walks and hikes
  • Flying kites
  • Riding bicycles
  • Camping
  • Visit a farmer’s market
  • Collect rocks and seashells
  • Catch butterflies
  • Go to the beach
  • Jump rope
  • Go bird watching
  • Play catch

Supporting your Mental Health

Although we often emphasize the importance of looking after your physical health, your mental and emotional health are just as important. Take some time this spring to check in with yourself mentally and see if your self-care routine needs a refresh.

Some easy ways to give your mental and emotional health a boost this spring include:

  • Deep-clean your living space
  • Try mindfulness meditation
  • Start journaling
  • Try outdoor yoga and stretching
  • Practice positive affirmations
  • Spend more time outdoors
