Today is the first day of spring and we reckon it’s not just all about tidying and cleaning your entire home. As the days get longer and temperatures start rising (not just your basal body temperature ;)) it’s a great time for making some small changes. With a healthier daily routine you can enjoy a little more spring in your step this season.
Wake up early and get into your routine
As spring comes along the sun starts rising earlier, so why not set the alarm an hour earlier? Getting up earlier leaves you refreshed and feeling productive and rising with the sun is a heck of alot better than on those dark winter days.
With Natural Cycles you should measure your temperature around the same time every morning, just after waking up – so it’s also great for getting out of the bad habit of winter snoozing. We find setting a labelled alarm at the same time to measure is not only great for a pretty temperature curve in the app but for a productive morning routine too.
Get outside and exercise
Did you know that exercise can relieve PMS cramps? The benefits of exercising (no matter what day of your cycle you’re on) just can’t be ignored, it’s great for your body all round and shows benefits for mental well-being. So once the weather starts getting a little better it’s great to get out into nature and enjoy the warmer temperatures and fresh air. From now on it’s time to grab your runners and hit the ground running.
So to get off on the right foot this spring, after the long winter – wake up a little earlier, measure regularly and exercise so you can hit the ground running.
