Take Advantage of Local Seasonal Fruit and Vegetables

As we tell clients during our nutrition counselling sessions, “Don’t focus on how much you eat; focus on what you eat.”

From April through May, the following fresh local fruits and veggies are in-season here on Vancouver Island:

  1. Apples
  2. Kale
  3. Leeks
  4. Mushrooms
  5. Red, green, and yellow onions
  6. Radishes
  7. Rhubarb
  8. Spinach
  9. Asparagus
  10. Celery
  11. Peas

In fact, the BC Farmers’ Markets even have a downloadable PDF that outlines what fruit and vegetables are fresh on Vancouver Island during each season!

On top of being a staple via their multitude of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and nutrients, you can feel good knowing that you’re supporting BC farmers.

Make it Your Mission to Get More Sun

Sunlight has a direct link to the happiness hormone serotonin, making sun exposure crucial for bolstering mental and emotional health.

In addition to boosting one’s mood, sun exposure has also been linked to better focus, a reduction in anxiety, and limiting both the frequency and severity of depressive episodes.

On the physical well-being side of things, consistent and moderate sun exposure (alongside daily SPF application, of course!) has been proven to benefit bone health, lower the risk of developing certain cancers, and help heal skin conditions such as eczema, acne, and psoriasis.

Getting more sun is one of our favourite wellness tips for transitioning from winter to spring due to its exercise: whether it be walking, biking, swimming, jogging, or anything in between, ensuring that you get in a minimum of 30 minutes of physical per-day is one of the best methods of self-care that can be done during the springtime.

Spring Cleaning: It’s Good For More Than Just Tidiness

Spring cleaning has more benefits than simply aiding in our house (or office’s) tidiness: in reality, taking part in the tradition has myriad benefits for both our mental and physical health.

Coming out of winter, the majority of us have excess clutter. Whether it be leftover holiday gifts that need to be packed away, pantry clutter, or seasonal clothes that are taking up space in the closet now that the weather has shifted.

Spring cleaning:

  1. Has been linked to reducing stress levels
  2. Helps you breathe better and more easily by eliminating dust, pet dander, and other airborne allergens
  3. Improves mood due to the satisfaction of having completed a task
  4. Gets you on your feet and active
  5. Can help with maintaining a healthier diet due to throwing away leftover holiday pantry items
