The spring season is the perfect time to get a fresh start on life. Whether you are up for a promotion, want to switch careers altogether, are looking to find a new love or just want to change things up a little, spring is the season for new beginnings. You don’t want to change who you are at heart or your core beliefs, but you may want to focus on having a more positive outlook, living a healthier lifestyle, and letting your sparkling personality shine. Here are a few tips on how to make spring the season that you put your best foot forward.
Smile More Often
Sometimes all it takes to feel a little happier is to smile more often. When people see you smile, they tend to smile back. All this smiling does actually have a positive effect on your mood as well as others. If you aren’t comfortable putting on a big grin because of tooth discoloration, you may want to consider teeth whitening treatments. The treatments are painless and only take about an hour from start to finish. In most cases, you can expect to leave the dentist’s office with a brighter whiter smile after only one treatment. When asked to name what initially attracted them to their spouse, many partners say it was their spouse’s smile. So brighten up those pearly whites and let your smile lead the way to a happier day.
New Hair Cut or Color
There’s no easier way to get a fresh new look than with a visit to your favorite hair stylist. A new haircut or color may be just the thing you need to leave the winter blues behind for a fresh start ahead. If you feel confident rocking a new style, it will be apparent to all those that you encounter. Remember, your hair will grow back just in case you don’t like it, so take a chance with that style you’ve been dreaming about but haven’t had the nerve to try. It will be sure to compliment your new smile makeover and your new outlook.
Adopt a Healthier Lifestyle
You may be feeling down due to a lack of exercise or poor eating and/or personal habits during the winter months. The longer days of spring and the warmer weather that the season brings will allow you to be more physically active. It is also easier to find an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables at your local grocer as the seasons change. Asparagus, broccoli and green peas taste great and are readily available in the spring, as well as tons of other healthy options. Eating well is a good start to a healthy being, as well as taking care of your skin and teeth. Proper oral hygiene may have a bigger effect on your overall health than you realize. Remember to brush, floss and schedule regular dental and periodontal exams in order to avoid gum disease which has been linked to more advanced diseases such as heart disease.
Join a Group or Activity
If you’ve always wanted to learn to paint, or learn how to paddle board (or anything else that interests you), spring is a good time to start. Once the weather breaks, you will find many groups and clubs are looking for new members just like you. Search online or in your local paper for a new activity that interests you. It’s a great way to learn something new and make new friends. Who knows? Your new friends may even ask you which salon you visited to have your hair cut or where you got such an effective teeth whitening treatment!
