Looking out my window I am still seeing snow as far as the eye can see. However I did drive into the city today and saw some grass. So there is hope!

We can all identify the subtle signs of spring – birds chirping, longer days and blooming flowers. The warmer weather signifies a fresh start with more time outdoors, bringing your garden back to life, and of course, spring cleaning! While these telltale signs are positive for the most part, its common to feel unprepared when the new season comes so quickly.

Here are a few things that signify spring is around the corner, with tips for a smooth transition:

  1. Your eyes, nose, and skin… are itchy. Unfortunately, for many this time of year is better known as allergy season. When there aren’t enough tissues to keep your nose from running, it’s time to break out some serious allergy relief. Aerius tablets are clinically proven to relieve 15 different allergy symptoms for up to 24 hours. Have your hiking buddies started to call you “the sniffle monster”? Try Claritin Rapid Dissolve for fast 24-hour relief of your indoor and outdoor allergy symptoms. The tablet dissolves instantly on the tongue, with no water needed – perfect for on the go!
  2. It’s raining a lot. We’ve finally moved on from the snowy weather but now it’s time to welcome the rain. While it’s nice to look at from the right side of a window, there’s nothing worse than getting unexpectedly soaked. Invest in a travel-sized, lightweight umbrella you can fit in your bag for those sporadic rainy days. Spring is known for its rain, it doesn’t have to be known for bad hair days too!
  3. It’s time to pack away those winter boots. Over the winter many of us get lazy from spending our time indoors and avoiding the cold weather. Now that spring is here it’s time to step into your spring shoes and get more active! Stroll comfortably this spring with Scholl’s Massaging Gel Insoles for all-day comfort, so you can take advantage of the warmer weather without getting tired feet. If you’re starting from scratch, start slow by increasing your steps. Make a list of things in the area you’d like to visit on foot so you have it handy when you’re looking for a fun weekend activity.
  4. You’re due for a thorough spring cleaning. It’s time to open those windows and freshen up your home. While you tidy up, set aside lightly used items that you no longer need. There’s no better feeling than reducing clutter and helping those in need while you do it!

As much as we have enjoyed this winter, it has been going on too long for me! I am excited to open my windows and get rid of the winter coats until next year. Spring is the light at the end of the winter tunnel and with a little preparation your transition into the new season will be seamless! What are a few of your favourite signs of spring and how do you get prepared for the new season?

    NOT YET, but soon hopefully …I had two days of anger phone app for weather said that it would be a low of -11 but low and behold it was -33 thats quite a difference and it happened two days in a row and I even took screen shots of the damned thing….I needed to badly head to the city for groceries…was ready to ditch said app as well…was quite happy when I ended up going in on Sunday morning at 6:30am (our store opens at 7am) and managed to spend my paychq in groceries (but I won’t be going in again til probably the end of may, beginning of june for a major shop…we’ll need just fresh veggies and fruits every now and then and thats it)

  2. I definitely know when spring comes because the allergies kick in. I am definitely into spring cleaning and I do have it done in the spring time I think it’s just because I like cleaning out the air! I am excited that spring is around the corner in that we are starting to get warmer weather.

  3. I love spring! I do have to battle allergies, but I still try to get out and plant flowers in my yard. It’s my favorite part of spring!

  4. I get awful allergies in the spring but I’m with you, I am done with winter. Can’t wait to start enjoying the outdoors again without those heavy winter parkas!

    I need to start stocking up on Claritin. It doesn’t usually hit me until the end of April or so, but those allergies are definitely on their way.

  6. I rifle stuff into my garage over the winter months. We don’t experience allergies here but I do love rock get the windows cracked on the second day of plus weather and. A good scrub of the house is a good scrub for the mind to shake the winter blues away

  7. Neely Moldovan says:

    I love those inserts. I use them in all my running shoes! They are awesome!

  8. We have snow too and more is coming tonight they say. I know it is near spring when we set the clocks and when the Easter candy comes out.

  9. We haven’t had any snow and I want some so I am hoping for a later start to Spring. I also am not quite ready nor do I have time for Spring cleaning yet.

  10. It surely is spring, my sinuses are already giving me a fit. Although I will be stuffed up the next few months it is such a beautiful time of the year.

  11. I could use a new pair of insoles for my sneakers. I find they help absorb shock from power walking, and such.

  12. The sign for spring for me is definitely the sounds of birds chirping in my backyard and the start of daylight saving time. I enjoyed winter but it’s also nice for a change of weather.

  13. I know Spring is coming because my poor son’s allergies start acting up! He is allergic to certain trees and grass so Springtime sucks for him!

  14. Yes, and I’m very excited for Spring. I’m over Winter already. I want Spring to be here already. It’s one of my favorite seasons.

  15. These are definitely all the signs that I notice! We always have Claritin on hand in any season but especially spring.

  16. I can’t wait for Spring to arrive even though it brings on allergy season. It will be nice to see my gardens in bloom.

  17. I’ve never had allergies until the last few years. Wow! What an eye opening change. Thank goodness for the little things that help us feel better!

  18. Spring has not arrived here, unfortunately, but I can’t wait! I am so tired of snow!

    We are getting closer to spring here in NJ, but we still have a bit of winter to get through. I will keep these products in mind!

  20. I can’t wait until Spring!! It’s almost here in Atlanta, but the weather is still so fickle! But we will be stocking up on Claritin!!

  21. I can not wait for Spring! I have already started the spring cleaning and getting ready for what is to come!

  22. These are all so true! Makes me so excited for Spring!

  23. I’m definitely getting those annoying allergy symptoms. However, I cannot wait until spring arrives and some warmer weather along with it.

  24. I can’t wait for spring to arrive! It’s still snowing off and on here in PA. I am definitely tired of the cold weather and ready for nice weather again.
