Actually, we were all already in a spring mood...and then the coronavirus came. 


Admittedly, we too are concerned about the many effects, because it really affects each and every one of us. At first, we were unsure if we wanted to publish our spring tips at all. Then we thought: Now more than ever! 


Regardless of whether we are trapped at home or not, spring is a good time for "inner spring cleaning". The current situation is a challenge for many of us, but let's make the best of it! 



1. Start your day with lemon water


A glass of lukewarm lemon water in the morning has many positive effects on the body: Lemon juice with warm water helps keep the body hydrated as it provides electrolytes to the body after the night, promotes the liver to flush out toxins and activates the digestive system. 


The vitamin C contained in the lemon also acts as a powerful antioxidant and helps to neutralise harmful substances. Lemon water is therefore ideal for supporting the immune system and detoxifying the body. 


Preparation is easy:Mix the juice of half a squeezed lemon in a glass of warm water - done! 


2. Stretch & exercise 


Exercise in the fresh air is a great way to wake up from hibernation and get fit. 


The effect of exercise is often underestimated. Physical exercise influences body systems such as breathing, the heart, the immune system, the muscles, the kidneys, the bones, the digestive system, the brain as well as the energy metabolism positively and are proven to reduce the risk of many lifestyle diseases. Despite that exercise has a positive effect on the mood. 


Update: Due to the current situation, everyone should, of course, follow the instructions of the local authorities. If it is not possible to move around outside, we recommend workouts at home. Use appropriate apps and books or look for a suitable indoor workout on Youtube.


Tip: During the Corona crisis yoga app provider Downdog offers all apps free of charge until April. 


3. Eat all the greens

 

Green vegetables are particularly rich in chlorophyll and are among the healthiest foods. Green vegetables contain vital and health-promoting ingredients such as vitamins, nutrients, fiber, antioxidants, and carotenoids. They are also considered to be blood purifying and antioxidant - perfect for "spring cleaning" your plate! 


Here are some ideas for green vegetables:


  • green leafy vegetables like lettuce, rocket, spinach, purslane, nettle or chard
  • green herbs like parsley, basil, coriander, and lovage 
  • zucchini, avocado & green pepper
  • green pulses like peas, green mung beans 
  • green sprouts 

Another great way to add more green to the menu is to make green smoothies. 


Tip: Try our Spirulina & Chlorella Complex.You can either take the capsules or add the capsule contents to drinks.

4. Use a habit tracker 


The key to success is, as we all know, to change our habits. 


Easier said than done! An excellent tool to establish new habits more easily is a so-called habit tracker. All you need is a calendar or a journal in which you cross off each day you stick with your routine. 


Sounds ridiculously simple, but is very effective. On one hand habit tracking creates a visual cue that can remind you to act. On the other hand it shows you what you have already accomplished - and that is motivating! 


Whether you want to do more reading, meditate daily or do more sports, with the help of your personal habit tracker you can change your life step by step. 

5. Take it easy! 

 


In our fast-moving world, it is not always easy to keep calm. The constant flood of information can be quite overwhelming - especially when we're constantly following disturbing news about the virus. Many of us are probably feeling quite stressed or even anxious scrolling through their social media feeds at the moment. 


In such situations, it is advisable to simply put the phone aside or turn off the news. 


Here are some great antidotes for overwhelm:  yoga exercises, meditation, a good book or playing games with your loved ones.
