Spring Refresh Tips for Your Mental Health

Harmony Bay Wellness

With spring just around the corner, there is no better time to focus on your mental health and give it a spring refresh. This is something we should be doing throughout the year to encourage emotional well-being. In this article, we are breaking down how you can refresh both your physical and mental health. 


Although your mental health needs to be a priority throughout the year, there is no denying that your physical health can also impact this. Physical well-being encompasses bodily health and the physical state that you live in, such as your surroundings. Here are some refresh tips that can help you feel more physically aligned with your mental health this spring. 


Journaling is incredibly beneficial for your mental state as it helps to get everything out of your head. Writing your thoughts down is very therapeutic and can help you expel things you don’t want to hang onto as you go into spring. 

How you go about journaling is entirely up to you, depending on your goals and what works best for your routine. Some people enjoy journaling every day, while others may journal here and there throughout the week. 

Declutter Your Space 

A classic way of refreshing your physical space for spring is decluttering. Decluttering is good for your physical well-being and can help clear up your mind and give you greater inner peace. You can think of this as shedding the excess so that you can embrace better things throughout this year. 

Reestablish a Daily Routine 

During the year, there are certain times when it can be harder to maintain daily routines as there is so much going on. Winter is a popular example of that, as there are so many holidays in these months, which can completely unravel your regular schedule. 

Daily routines are essential for mental and physical well-being, providing structure and peace of mind. Springtime is the perfect opportunity to reestablish a daily routine that works for you in this time of life. Make sure this routine promotes productivity, peace, and time for the things that are most important. 

Check on Your Goals 

Most people like to make yearly goals that help them know what direction they are moving towards month to month. If you are one of these people, spring is a great time to check in with these goals to see what you have accomplished. 

Maybe you have a goal board or a list that you can check things off of. Checking in with your goals periodically is incredibly beneficial and will help you celebrate everything you have accomplished. 

Start a Fitness Routine 

With spring comes warmer weather for most people, which opens the door for more fitness opportunities. Fitness is not just about looking a certain way but about achieving true physical and mental health. Not only will exercising make you feel physically better, but it is also incredibly beneficial for mental health. 

Exercising floods your brain with those feel-good chemicals and can help you achieve a healthier balance in life. If you gave up on your fitness routine during the cold of winter, this is a perfect time to pick it back up or give it a spring refresh. 


Every season of the year comes with changes to your mental health, especially if you feel impacted by the weather. Not only does the weather change, but the atmosphere and your responsibilities can also change. That is why it is so beneficial to do a spring refresh so that you can enter this season of the year feeling invigorated and ready to go. 

Let Go of Negativity 

Letting go of negativity is much easier said than done. Even though this can be challenging, it is crucial that you try to let go of any negativity that enters your life as soon as you feel it. As spring approaches, this is the perfect time to let go of that baggage, just like you did when you decluttered your space. 

Try to identify negative thoughts or beliefs that are holding you back and diluting the good things in your life. You may need to remove certain things from your life or even distance yourself from negative voices. A great way to let go of negativity in your mind is to journal or write letters to help you put space between those thoughts and feelings. 

Create a Self-Care Routine 

Self-care is something that walks the line between physical and mental well-being. Although self-care is often focused on the physical, it is meant more to help with your mental health. 

Self-care can take many forms, such as taking a bath, making a special dessert, taking a nap, or going for a walk. Even the more physical acts of self-care will have a mental impact as you are creating time for your well-being. 

The backbone of self-care is giving yourself the room and the time you need to simply exist and feel good in your own skin. As long as your self-care is producing this result, self-care can take the form of just about anything. 

Reconnect With Others 

The beginning of the year is a hectic time for those who may feel a bit disconnected from the important people in their lives. That is why spring is a great time to reconnect with friends and family who you may have felt a bit distant from. 

Take some time to rework your schedule and set aside space for reconnecting with the important people in your life. This can be as simple as having a phone call, going for a walk, or hanging out at someone’s home. Being around people you love is food for the soul and will have a significant impact on your mental well-being as you enter spring. 

Embrace Gratitude 

There are certain emotions that come with spring, gratitude being one of them. Gratitude is an incredibly powerful emotion that can immediately increase your emotional well-being and chase away any negative thoughts or feelings. 

Embracing and learning how to practice gratitude on a daily basis is a great way to care for your mental health. You can do this by taking time to dwell on what you are grateful for in the morning or at night, or you could even start keeping a gratitude journal. 

Make Time For Creativity 

Creativity is something that adds a little spice to life and can produce motivation and boost your confidence. Many people miss out on these benefits by not allowing their creativity to thrive. 

Try to make time for creativity, no matter what form this takes. Maybe you enjoy painting and need to create a space where you can practice. Or if you enjoy writing poetry and need to set aside time every week to do this. 


Spring is a beautiful time that many people look forward to as it is a season of new life and a complete internal and external reset. To get the most out of this season, you should refresh your mental health, which can help you to feel more at peace and make time for the things that are important in your life. Some tips to keep in mind are to participate in spring cleaning, reinvent your routine, practice gratitude, and reconnect with the ones you love.
