A Spring Redo For You and Your Home

by Dr Kathleen Hall

We are tired of the gloomy days, short days with little sunlight, heavy thick clothes, being sequestered in our homes. It is spring!  It is time to open the windows, shed our heavy winter clothes and get outside. It is time for a spring redo just for you and your home.

Tips For a Spring Redo Just For You

On the Inside

Your health. It’s a great time to feel better or get in shape. Each day the days are warmer and have more light.  The flowers begin to pop out and the trees begin to get their spring leaves. Get outside and walk each day.  Get a group in your neighborhood, walk with coworkers or walk with your family each night after dinner. It’s invigorating and gets you excited about spring.

On the Outside

Your look. You can have a new burst of energy just by changing your look. Why not try a new hair cut or a new hair color? There are new spring colors for your wardrobe that can brighten up your look.  It doesn’t have to be expensive. Try a new scarf, shoes, or a purse. For men, how about a new tie with the new spring colors or fun bright socks.

Tips For a Spring Redo For Your Home

On the Inside

The Power of Color. A little color: adding a little color to your home is fun and brings life into your home.  Paint an accent wall in each room of your home. It is inexpensive and makes a real change. Add some bright colorful throw pillows on the couches or your bed.

China. change to a bright colored china or accent salad plates or glasses.  They are inexpensive at Target Kmart or Costco.

On the Outside

Shutters. brighten up your home and create a new look.  They are now available in pre done colors that are not wood and do not need painted.

Window Boxes. Window boxes or flower pots on your front porch or steps.

Your Yard. Get a sheet of paper and start planning how to add color to your yard.  Plant some annuals for bright color and a pick me up.


Closet/drawers. As you bring out your spring/summer clothes, give away your winter clothes you are tired of or don’t fit.  This opens up your storage areas and makes you feel better.

Garage and outside storage areas.  Get the family together for a day when everyone helps clean out an outside storage area.  It will make everyone feel better and throughout the spring and summer when you need tools or sports equipment you will know exactly where it is. Donate all the things you found that you aren’t using anymore.


Notice your local birds.  You can learn different sounds of you local birds by downloading a bird app. I like the app Larkwire but there are tons to choose from. Put up a bird feeder, get some field glasses and binoculars. Have fun with your family, or birders, and enjoy the vast variety of these magnificent birds.
