    Consider getting a new look. Spring is a great time for considering a makeover of your existing look. Have you had the same hairstyle for the past several years? Is your wardrobe due for an update?
    • Spring is a great time to check the age of your makeup. Most makeup should be used within 6 to 12 months. Throw out old makeup and anything that's no longer in style.
    • Look at new hairstyles. While it's helpful to look at current season styles, be sure to ask your hair stylist to help you with a style that matches your facial shape and brings out the best for you, for your age and gender.

    Draw, paint or photograph spring scenery. Drawing is fun and relaxing and even if you've never tried it before, you never know––you might be quite good.

  • Use the change of season to check smoke alarm batteries, de-flea your pets, check filters in your air-conditioning and pool systems, etc.


  • Don't spend too much time outside if you have hay fever.
  • Remember to use sunscreen; you can still get sunburned in the Spring.
