16 Mar 5 Ways to Freshen Up Your Wellness Routine in Spring
Spring has arrived! The start of a new season is the perfect time for a wellness routine and self-care check-in. Learn more about recharging your wellness batteries at Iron Mountain Hot Springs.
After months of snow, freezing temperatures and bundling up, spring really is a breath of fresh air in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. Some things we love about the new season are the longer days with more hours of sunshine, trading our winter boots for flip-flops, and the arrival of baby wildlife—ducklings, eaglets, kits and fawns—to the area near the Iron Mountain Hot Springs grounds. Best of all, we love the chance spring gives us to reset our priorities!
A time to renew, regenerate and reinvigorate, taking a cue from nature, spring is an opportune time to reassess wellness goals or at a minimum schedule a little self-care time.
Air Out Your Workout. Warmer weather means you can easily take your fitness routine outdoors in Glenwood Springs. Swap a few days at the gym for a run, walk or bike ride outside. The Rio Grande Trail is a paved trail that follows the Roaring Fork to Aspen. Go for a 30-minute run along the river or spend the day cycling all 42 miles!
Sleep On It. The Mayo Clinic recommends adults get between 7 and 9 hours of sleep. How are you doing? Most of us are sleep-deficient. To improve your odds of a good night’s sleep turn off all the lights, crack open the window, and skip scrolling through social media before bed. Find comfortable, relaxing lodging in Glenwood Springs.
Detox Your Diet. Spring is the ideal time to lighten up your diet. More fruit and vegetables, many locally-grown, become available this time of year. To feel better and drop a few pounds try reducing your sugar, sodium and alcohol consumption. Healthy choices at the Sopris Café at Iron Mountain Hot Springs include charcuterie and veggie trays, as well as low-carb flatbread pizzas.
Make the Mind-Body Connection. Many people find the relaxing atmosphere of the 16 soaking pools at Iron Mountain Hot Springs particularly conducive to channeling a quiet, peaceful state of mind. Watch a couple of local ladies explain how and why they practice mindfulness at Iron Mountain Hot Springs.
Your Own Wellness Kickstarter. Building a routine that incorporates regular exercise, restful sleep and a healthy diet are keys to living a wellness-centered life. Sometimes starting a new health regimen is easier when you begin it on a vacation, away from your normal routine. In addition to soaking in the mineral-rich geothermal waters at Iron Mountain Hot Springs, Glenwood Springs also offers opportunities to explore a multitude of activities such as yoga and other fitness-focused classes, hiking, cycling, fly-fishing, golfing, whitewater rafting and more.
If your resolutions from the start of the year have tarnished over time, spring is a great time to give them a quick polish. For a wellness pick-me-up this spring, visit Iron Mountain Hot Springs in Glenwood Springs today!
