In case you hadn’t noticed, it is now officially Spring. For those of you who can see spring coming, here are our favorite health benefits of spring. For those that are still cold; here’s something to look forward to!
1. Fresh fruit and vegetables. There are loads of lovely vegetables in season in March, including artichoke, asparagus, celery root, broccoli and avocado.
In-season fruits include kiwi, grapefruit and pineapple. Because they are in season, these fruits and vegetables will have much higher vitamin content than when they are stored or transported. They should be cheaper and they should be even tastier than normal!
Hint: Spring to action by buying local seasonal fruit and veg where possible.
2. Vitamin D. As the winter months fade away and the days become longer you’ll start seeing much more daylight, and of your old friend the sun! The sun gives us most of our supply of vitamin D, which is essential for healthy bone, muscle and nerve health. The sun can also chase away seasonal affective disorder, a type of depression that is the result of too little exposure to the sun’s rays.
Hint: Soak up some of the spring time sun to get your vitamin D levels up again.
3. Motivated to spring into action. As temperatures rise and the sun shines for longer, you will feel more motivated to go out for a good walk, jog or run. Running in the sunshine is so much more fun than running in the cold, rain, sleet or snow!
Hint: Use the change in season to find a new exercise routine, or make a springtime resolution to walk for half an hour every day.
