How to Celebrate the Spring Equinox in Manchester

With spring upon us, why not celebrate the light nights, the flowers blooming, and the birds chirping again?

The Spring Equinox falls on the 20th of March this year and is there a better time than when the weather starts to get warmer, and plants start to blossom? If you’re unfamiliar with the Spring Equinox, then no worries… we’ve got you covered. In layman's terms, the Spring Equinox is the astronomical spring in the northern hemisphere, and it’s something that has been celebrated for thousands of years, bringing out lots of cultural traditions alongside it. So, read on to see the best ways that you can involve yourself in the Spring Equinox this year.

Time to cleanse your mind and body

With spring being a time of fresh starts, why not cleanse your body and give it some TLC that it deserves? With the mad city life, maybe it’s time to step back and take a breath, appreciate your body, and take some time for yourself.

Get that beauty sleep

One way to make sure that you’re getting the full potential from your body is to make sure you’re having enough rest. Making sure that you’re getting enough sleep every night is so important for your physical health and mental well-being. Having enough sleep increases productivity and boosts your energy so that you can crack on with your day and not feel sluggish and the need to rely on caffeine to push you through the day. We recommend 7-9 hours a day for peak productivity, so get that head down and get your beauty sleep.

Keep hydrated

Hydration is also another way to keep your body healthy, and it does more than just quench your thirst …Especially if you live that active city lifestyle, it can be hard to drink your liquids ayou should, so maybe it’s time to invest in a reusable bottle to keep with you on the go so you always have access to that good old H20 that you need to keep you going

Eat your fruit and veg

Another way to keep our mind and body healthy is by staying away from processed foods and reducing our salt intake. By eating healthy, you’re keeping your mind and body healthy, meaning that you can cleanse your body by drinking water and having a good sleeping pattern to give your body that TLC that you all need for a fresh spring start. So, how about trying to cook tasty meals with some good old veggies and protein to keep that balanced diet on track for a healthy lifestyle this spring?

Get some fresh air

Why not get outside and get that serotonin boost with a nice walk around a public park to get outside with nature? The perfect place to do this is Platt Fields Park. Just outside the city centre, and accessible by multiple bus routes, take in the beauty of nature in this park with big ponds, birds, and paths to explore – this is the perfect way to start your weekend or even get out after work and get some fresh air. With the light nights approaching, we can do more with our days and get out and about across the city, so why not head into nature and take in the greenery as you enjoy the fresh air filling your lungs – and of course grab a drink or snack to take with you and keep your energy levels high.

With so many ways to celebrate the start of spring, why not get out and about and enjoy the city, whilst keeping your mind and body active and healthy? It’s time to celebrate the Spring Equinox together; so let’s have a fresh start and enjoy the longer days as the weather gets warmer and life gets that little bit better.
