We can all identify the subtle signs of spring – birds chirping, longer days and blooming flowers. Floral patterns are starting to appear on dresses in shop windows. The warmer weather signifies a fresh start with more time outdoors, bringing your garden back to life, and of course, spring cleaning! While these telltale signs are positive for the most part, its common to feel unprepared when the new season comes so quickly. Time flies when you’re busy raising kids! If you watch closely, you can see the signs spring has arrived.

Here are a few tips for a smooth transition:

  1. Your eyes, nose, and skin… are itchy. Unfortunately, for many this time of year is better known as allergy season. When there aren’t enough tissues to keep your nose from running, it’s time to break out some serious allergy relief. Aerius tablets are clinically proven to relieve 15 different allergy symptoms for up to 24 hours. Are you sniffling on the sidelines of soccer games? Try Claritin Rapid Dissolve for fast 24-hour relief of your indoor and outdoor allergy symptoms. The tablet dissolves instantly on the tongue, with no water needed – perfect for on the go! That said, try to make sure you have a reusable water bottle on-hand to keep you hydrated while you are out and about.
  2. It’s raining a lot. This is also a sign you live in Vancouver, so be cautious about taking this as a sign of Spring. We’ve finally moved on from the snowy weather but now it’s time to welcome the rain. While it’s nice to look at from the right side of a window, there’s nothing worse than getting unexpectedly soaked. Invest in a travel-sized, lightweight umbrella you can fit in your bag for those sporadic rainy days. Spring is known for its rain, it doesn’t have to be known for bad hair days too! You could also stash one in the car.
  3. It’s time to pack away those winter boots. Over the winter many of us get lazy from spending our time indoors and avoiding the cold weather. Now that spring is here it’s time to step into your spring shoes and get more active! Stroll comfortably this spring with Scholl’s Massaging Gel Insoles for all-day comfort, so you can take advantage of the warmer weather without getting tired feet. After all, when you have kids, you definitely have places to be! If you’re starting from scratch, start slow by increasing your steps. Make a list of things in the area you’d like to visit on foot so you have it handy when you’re looking for a fun weekend activity. Be prepared for fun!
  4. You’re due for a thorough spring cleaning. It’s time to open those windows and freshen up your home. While you tidy up, set aside lightly used items that you no longer need for donation or recycling. There’s no better feeling than reducing clutter and helping those in need while you do it!

Spring is the light at the end of the winter tunnel and with a little preparation your transition into the new season will be seamless! What are a few of your favourite signs of spring and how do you get prepared for the new season?
