Spring is in the air! and that means lighter days, warmer weather and flowers blooming!
But are you still feeling sluggish from those slow winter evenings? Here at Clintons, we’ve compiled a list of ideas to help give you that ‘get up and go’ energy. This season brings a new lease of life so it’s time to blow the cobwebs away and follow some of our handy suggestions to spring into action:
Whether it’s your kitchen, wardrobe or workspace; decluttering parts of your home helps to refresh and reset your mind – and there is nothing more satisfying than coming home to a house that sparkles! Think about any ‘trouble spots’ you’d like to tackle first and dedicate some time each week to cleaning and tidying them. Having a clean space will boost productivity and have a positive effect on your mental well-being.
Embrace the Fresh Scents
As the outdoors bloom, so should your home. Decorate your living spaces with Spring-scented candles, reed diffusers and room spray. Scents of orange blossom, sweet pea and fresh linen will enliven your mood and awaken your home out of its winter hibernation.

What a better way to welcome the sunny days with a spot of gardening. Simple things like clearing away debris or mowing the lawn will not only help get your garden space ready for summer, it will make you want to spend more time outdoors. So, after all the hard work, why not grab a good book, chilled drink and soak up some vitamin D in the sunshine.
If you want to welcome family and friends round to check out your new garden this summer, invite them with one of our gardening cards range.
Fill Your Home with Flora
Fresh blooms on tables and windowsills will add a pop of colour to your home and brighten your day. You could even purchase a new vase or plant pot to go with them. Seeing flower buds open and nurtured plants grow reduces levels of anxiety and studies have shown it can even boost creativity.
You could even bring in a beautiful fresh rose from your garden and delicately place it in a single stem vase.
Afternoon Tea Creations
Happiness comes with a slice of cake! Make your regular cups of tea a little more special and take time for indulging in afternoon tea. Whether it’s an ordinary day or Easter weekend, homemade sandwiches and cakes will make the occasion even more special.
Make sure to check out our fabulous new range of mugs to make that cup of tea all that little bit more exciting.
Out With the Old – In With the New
This season brings with it the gorgeous pastel colours we know and love. Treat yourself and add some to your décor if possible. New tea-sets, tea towels or glassware would be a perfect option to add to your afternoon teas.
Practice the Art of Journaling
This season brings a natural time of renewal and gives us all a fresh start. Create a space for a writing corner in your home and write to yourself what you would like to get out of this year. Are there any goals you would like to achieve? What are you already grateful for? Putting steps in place to improve the quality of our life not only boosts our mental well-being but also creates a healthy relationship with our minds and sets the foundation to allow us to be productive.
Take a look at our wide range of Spring themed journals to start writing your story.
Whatever your springtime rituals are, here at Clintons we hope you are able to enjoy all the happiness this time of year brings and these simple suggestions give you the inspiration you need to make positive changes in your life.
