10 Spring Rituals To Reset & Refresh

Why hello, blog friends – and greetings from Italy! We’ve been here for all of one single day at the point of writing this and you guys cannot accurately understand the sheer volume of ice cream that I have consumed. It’s great; fuck your “healthy diets”.

. . . Okay fine, change that to put a pin in them while I’m in the land of all the best foods ever. When I’m back home, it’ll be all “smoothies” and “fruit boxes” again. But when in Rome! (Also, we are quite literally in Rome. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to use this phrase accurately. I’d like to thank my parents, my friends and my Wi-Fi.)

Now, in case you missed last week’s warm weather, we are now in the full swing of Spring. In the spirit of Spring, I wanted to bring you a post about all the ways you could reset and refresh for the new season; some ways to wipe the shit-stained slate of winter clean and be productive and happy . . .

Then I broke my laptop, missed a collab post and wasn’t able to write this one properly. Oh, and Italy. Much business. So have a video of some of the simple Spring Rituals you can do to hit that mental reset and welcome in the best months of the year! (Make sure the video quality is 1080px, kids)

Now, while this post was somewhat legitimately trash (I promise, I had great ideas for it – hence, having a video premade!), fortunately it was a collaboration post with the wonderful AlysJournals. Alys is a super intelligent, super aspirational girl and I absolutely love her posts about mental health. Her blog is like entertainment and brain food all in one brilliant package. Alys shared some wonderful Self Care Tips For Spring, so go and take a read!

While we’re here: thanks for all the love on my last post; I have not suddenly become someone who laughs maniacally while pointedly ignoring their comment section. Again . . . laptop broke, then had to go to Italy. I’m working through replies and catching up on all your blog posts!

This was just a quick ‘lil post – what did you think of the video? Have you done any of the things I recommended for Spring yet? What’s your favourite Spring ritual? Let me know your thoughts down below!

Peace,

  2. K.M. Sutton – I am a country girl living on the Upper East Side of the concrete jungle. My friends call me a modern day Renaissance woman. I have dabbled in a little bit of everything, from being a yoga instructor to holistic chef, to skating coach, to glorified nanny, to student. I am a self admitted coffee junkie. A wannabe mermaid. A wanderluster who dreams of other countries. A fashionista who really does need a bigger bank account. But most important of all, I dream of living in a bungalow by the ocean and being a published writer (in style of course) sipping coffee in the morning and a martini in the evening. I love to meet my readers, so feel free to comment or email me. Happy reading!

    While I have only been counting down the days until Spring, and praying and doing sun dances and basically willing to sell my soul to Mother Nature to ge weather ABOVE fifty…..None of that compares to the fact you are in flipping Italy!!!! Girl I am so jealous! And please diet schmiet! You need to be eating all that good food for me too! I am officially living vicariously THROUGH you! Ahhh so excited for you.

      Thank you lovely! I’m not sure what the font was as it was prebuilt into the text template in my video editor, but the bikini was from New Look 🙂 xx

    I really enjoyed the video! <3 It's super aesthetic and pretty! I have yet to try out a bath bomb, but it looked super relaxing! 🙂 My favorite spring ritual is definitely going to the coffee shop and writing. I've been doing it a lot lately and it's really helped with stress!

    Lovely post <3
