My Spring Plans + Free Printable!

Apparently it’s Spring (I say apparently because I’m wearing a jumper and have the heating on!) and as usual at this time of the year I get the urge to clean and de-clutter and decorate and do a million and one other things. Unfortunately I normally try to do to much and end up with burn out which is not fun at all and means I don’t really get to enjoy the season.

I wanted to set myself some seasonal goals without going crazy but when I looked online the only checklists I could find were for kids and so I thought that I’d put together my own little checklist of ways in which I can really enjoy this Spring. Oh there’s a blank printable for you to download at the bottom of the post too – fill it in with your spring plans and check them off as you go 🙂

It has been literally YEARS since I have rode a bike or flown a kite and so i’m excited to try both of those again! I did keep spring cleaning on my checklist because it is something I enjoy – although I’m only going to do a couple of rooms at a time to keep from getting overwhelmed!

Here’s the blank printable for you to use: Spring Checklist

What do you think of my list? And what will you put on yours?

It’s been a week since I started and I’ve lost 3lb (not expected!) and think my body is actually detoxing out a lot of toxins and built up crap so I’m hoping this lifestyle change really works long term for me!
