5 Ways to Refresh Your Spring Session

This spring term, the clock doesn’t need to be the only thing jumping forward. You too can get a jumpstart on the season by making small changes to the habits you’ve formed during the school year so far.

Here are five ways you can tweak your routine to spark bigger changes in school, at work, and at home this spring.

Switch up your routine If you find yourself slowing down in some parts of your day, or simply “going through the motions” of certain tasks, it may be time to switch things up. Try studying at different times or places, picking up different work shifts, or doing chores at times you usually don’t to keep your mind stimulated.

Eat fresh Food can do a lot more than you think. If you want to drink less caffeine this term, for example, there are mood foods that can have energy-inspiring effects on the brain similar to those that coffee does. If you plan on going to the gym more, protein-rich foods can help keep soreness at bay.

Spring clean Time-tested and still going strong, spring-cleaning is a great way to usher in the new season. And it’s effective, too. Decluttering and reorganizing can make you more productive, lead you to donate old things to charity, or even unearth some textbooks to sell back. What’s not to like?

Revise your lists The spring marks the quarter-mark of the year, which is a natural and appropriate time to check back with your New Year’s resolutions and to-do lists. Revisit and reassess any list that you made for yourself over the past 4 months and don’t be afraid to edit them or make new ones.

Take a break from something Of all the seasons, winter causes the most changes to our routines. Some take up Netflix to keep sane while the weather is ugly outside, for example, and others sleep in due to the cold. Look at what’s shifted from last term to now and match it by dropping certain tendencies to make way for new opportunities.
