Spring cleaning for your health

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — It’s been a long, cold winter, but spring is finally around the corner! Experts say it’s a good opportunity to focus on some spring cleaning, for your health’s sake. Here are a few ideas to get started.

If you’re not a gardener already, consider starting:

  • Gardening burns calories. Plus, you’ll get to enjoy fresh fruits, herbs, and vegetables as a result of your hard work.

Use the mild temperatures to re-energize your workout:

  • Increase your activity by going for walks during lunch or after dinner.
  • Consider adding hiking, or sign up for an outdoor boot camp to switch your exercise routine.
  • Plan an active family getaway or weekend.

During your spring cleaning around the house:

  • Don’t overlook the medicine cabinet. Get rid of expired medications.
  • The same goes for your pantry. Toss anything outdated.
