Spring & Waiting For Inspiration To Come…

Lifestyle — March 22, 2024

Spring and summer use to be my least favorite seasons, but as I have gotten older, it seems the hope and signs of new life in the spring is something that I have really enjoyed… and I didn’t anticipate it, but now that it is here, I have found joy in all of the little things- the abundance of bees, the seedlings emerging from the soil, the sound of the birds chirping, the blooming of flowers.

Do you ever find yourself overwhelmed with anxiety and scrolling endlessly for inspiration to strike? I have struggled with anxiety for as long as I can remember… but on days when it seems to bother me more than others I try to redirect my worries into doing something creative rather than scrolling on social media looking for something to fill me.

Last week, I took our camera and walked around our property to capture spring moments which really transitioned my focus to see and appreciate the surrounding beauty rather than focus on the anxiety that was creeping in. Here are some other ideas to help calm your anxiety when you are feeling overwhelmed…

  • Put your phone down.
  • Go for a walk.
  • Put your feet in the grass.
  • Spend time in the garden.
  • Try a nature study – sketching shadows.
  • Read a book to your children.
  • Baking a delicious dessert.

“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold, when it is summer in the light and winter in the shade.” — Charles Dickens

I hope the days are warming up for you, the light streams in a bit brighter on darker days, and you start to feel the renewal of hope that lies ahead after a long restful season.
