Renewal and Transitions

Hello everyone, and welcome to April! When spring arrives, it’s like the world hits refresh. Trees bud, flowers bloom, and the air smells fresh. To me, spring is all about starting over. It’s a chance to leave the cold, dark days of winter behind and welcome warmth and growth. Just like nature gets a fresh start, we can too.

Make room for your future with a spring purge

When the outside environment changes, we often feel the need to update our inside spaces and our inner state of mind. April is the perfect time to clean out your closet, give away clothes you haven’t worn in years and pull out your best outfits for warmer days. It’s also a great chance to go shopping, to a thrift shop or to organize a clothing exchange evening. If you’re like me, you may want to refresh your surroundings with brighter colours, flowers and a good clean. You’d be amazed what a bouquet of fresh flowers can do for your mood!

If, on the other hand, the idea of a big spring clean is overwhelming to you, there are plenty of other renewal projects that can bring you that sense of freedom and accomplishment. For example, cleaning out your medicine cabinet from unused drugs, expired medication and empty bottles is a great way to declutter. Read more on the safe disposal of prescription drugs or contact your pharmacist with any questions about expiry dates.

We’d LOVE to hear from you!
