month of Spring! Before it all melts away with our winter misery, take advantage of the last snow and visit a Scandinavian Spa. March and April are some of the best months to enjoy a Scandinavian Bath since the temperatures are not freezing and allow for the body to relax and absorb the refreshing water and the cool early spring breeze. The Scandinavian Spas also offer massage and an array of other services tendered to your relaxation.

Refresh Your Spring Wardrobe

Spring has sprung and so have the latest fashions, and no these do not include a down parka with UGGs. Shopping for a new spring wardrobe will excite your mind for the new season. Shopping has been proven to ease depressed feeling, which many of us are likely to experience in the gloomy, dark, winter months. A new spring wardrobe doesn’t require spending thousands of dollars, even a few items will take your mind off the snow and slush and into the abyss of sunshine and singing birds.

Not much of a fashion freak? There are other spring items in store, I personally like to shop for garden tools, planting ideas, seeds and more! What’s a better way to greet spring than with beautiful landscaping?

  1. I love the ideas of taking a walk in the park and sprucing up my wardrobe. Both of those can be done at a low cost, although I’m usually horrible at maintaining a budget when I come across awesome clothing finds in the store. It’s so hard to find things that fit right, so when I do, I buy a lot. 🙂

  2. I would love to try indoor beach volleyball! I’m so done with this winter. It’s been long and freezing cold with lots of snow in New England. I’m ready for spring, I mean summer! lol

  3. Love all these great ideas. Indoor game is always a great option & I do that with our kids & husband, which gives a great pleasure as well in return. We do love walking in the park regularly.
