25 Renewing Spring Things

Spring is the season that says, "Come out and play!"

Spring invites us to remember it's okay to go ahead and smile. With the landscape transforming around us, it's surprising how the simple renewing things can lift our spirits.

With that idea, here are 25 renewing things I'm enjoying this season. They aren't life-changing, expensive, or revolutionary. But like spring, they give the light and joy that the season brings.

25 Renewing Spring Things

Simple things that don't cost much, but give life-giving returns.

  1. Planting something to remind me to keep growing.

  2. Meeting a friend for lunch at a place I have always wanted to visit.

  3. Cooking something that reminds me of a happy memory.

  4. Finding a productive place for anxiety - prayers, walking, journaling, or serving.

  5. Trying something new - a workout, recipe, a drive home.

  6. Cleaning out a pocket of clutter that bugs me.

  7. Giving something away.

  8. Finding something new that fascinates me. (currently lowering cholesterol)

  9. Gathering whatever is green or growing in your midst for a homespun bouquet.

  10. Cleaning off your desk.

  11. Walking around somewhere new.

  12. Going out of my way for someone who needs encouragement.

  13. Writing a thank you note for people who mean so much to me.

  14. Doing the hard thing I've been dreading just for five minutes - pushups, taxes, weeding, starting a project.

  15. Planning a quick field trip to a nearby town with my husband.

  16. Asking myself what I need and honoring that.

  17. Texting/calling a friend to let them know I am thinking of them.

  18. Fun puzzles, fun board games, or a new way to play.

  19. Being lovingly clear with what I need - a hug, a compliment, a high five, or grace.

  20. Celebrate something, no matter how small. Even on a Tuesday.

  21. Opening the windows and doors to let fresh air in.

  22. Noticing what I appreciate about those around me and telling them.

  23. Watching my favorite movies of all time, again.

  24. Surrounding myself with good music while I cook, clean, and get ready for the day.

  25. Taking a rest when I need it. Even if it's just for five minutes.
