Breathe Deeply and Embrace Spring: How Mindfulness Can Help You Bloom

Spring has sprung! Birds are chirping, flowers are blooming, and hopefully, a sense of renewal is filling the air. But for some of us, spring can also bring a surge of stress – the end of cozy winter routines, the pressure of new beginnings, and the lingering effects of seasonal affective disorder (SAD).

This spring, let's ditch the cortisol spike and cultivate a sense of calm with mindfulness practices. Mindfulness is the art of paying attention to the present moment without judgment. It's a powerful tool for managing anxiety, improving sleep, and reducing the impact of PTSD and clinical depression.

Here's how mindfulness can help you bloom this spring:

  • Combat Diathesis Stress: Diathesis stress refers to a vulnerability to stress caused by genetics or past experiences. Mindfulness practices like meditation can help you build resilience and manage stress responses, even if you're predisposed to feeling overwhelmed.

  • Ace That Spring Cleaning and Mental Decluttering: Spring cleaning isn't just about your home. Use mindfulness to declutter your mind. Techniques like journaling can help you identify and release anxieties and worries.

  • First Day of Spring? First Day of Calm: The "spring forward" time change can disrupt sleep patterns. Mindfulness exercises like deep breathing and guided meditations can help you ease into a restful sleep schedule.

  • From Stress Test to Stress Less: Feeling overwhelmed by spring semester exams or looming deadlines? Mindfulness can help you develop a calmer focus. By anchoring yourself in the present moment, you can approach challenges with a clearer mind.


Here are two journeys Mindary offers to start a mindful spring:

The Smile Hack:

Did you know that even a small, intentional smile on your face can relax your nervous system and help reduce stress levels? It might sound strange, but give it a try! Right now, take a moment and put a faint smile on your face. Hold it for a minute and notice how you feel. Your body may start to feel a bit lighter, and your mind might feel a touch calmer. When you feel stressed and anxious throughout the day, you can close your eyes, put on a little smile, and stay like this for a while. This simple technique can be a powerful tool to interrupt stress patterns and promote feelings of peace.

Move Your Body, Boost Your Mood:

Engaging in physical movement aids in stress reduction by releasing tension and promoting relaxation. If your body permits, consider embracing a fun challenge by climbing all the stairs you come across throughout the day. Not only will this keep you active, but it may also provide a sense of accomplishment and enjoyment. If you find joy and fulfillment in this activity, consider incorporating it into your routine as a healthy and rewarding habit. Remember, small, positive changes in your daily habits can significantly impact your overall well-being.

This spring, don't let stress steal your sunshine. Our app offers a variety of mindfulness exercises, meditations, and guided practices to help you lower cortisol, manage anxiety, cultivate a sense of peace throughout the season, and develop healthy ways to express your emotions.
