Spring

Spring is a great time to cleanse your life.  With warmer weather right around the corner it’s good to start eating lighter foods.  Fruits and vegetables will start to come into season that will help with this change.  Add strawberries to your breakfast, lemon to your water, beets, asparagus, and artichokes to your meals.

It can also be a good time to clean out your home and get rid of excess.  If you haven’t used it in over a year consider donating it.  Once you begin to feel the warmth, planting new life can be a great thing to do in the spring time.  Don’t have room, don’t worry just take a trip into nature and enjoy the new blooming plants.

Japan

Japan is a great place to enjoy nature in the spring.  The sakura or cherry blossom blooms beautiful pink during this time of year.  It is not uncommon to attend a cherry blossom viewing party which is similar to a picnic with family and friends.  While in Japan, try some of the fresh fish that contains great omega 3 fatty acids.  Immerse yourself in the Japanese culture and relax in an onsen or hot spring, there are many natural hot springs throughout the country.   For more information visit http://www.jnto.go.jp/eng/.
