Did you know that the first day of spring is also International Day of Happiness? March 20th is packing a two-for-one when it comes to reasons to celebrate. Spring makes us feel more alive and excited, and if you’re not feeling it yet, help is here. It might entail a few steps of prepwork, but the results will bring a season of joy and peace. Here’s how.
Bring the “om” to the places you roam.
For pets and their people, spring means going to the park, playing in the grass, watching the clouds, picnics, barbecues, festivals, hikes, and a flurry of fun. Don’t let pesky insects like ticks, mosquitoes, and fleas ruin the good times.
Wondercide’s Flea & Tick spray for pets and Insect Repellent for family are plant-based bug sprays that are lab proven to kill and repel these pesky bugs. Each comes in four fresh scents made with no artificial fragrance, colors, or dyes. Steam-distilled natural essential oils star in these smell-good sprays that include cedarwood, lemongrass, peppermint, and rosemary options. Choose the scent that suits your springtime vibe. Sunshine and peace of mind coming right up.
Connect with the earth.
What’s this trend of earthing? There’s a reason why our post-pandemic lives crave it. Earthing or grounding is the technique to reconnect with our planet by walking barefoot on the ground, playing on the ground, or simply laying on the ground. The sand counts too, so if you live near a lake shore or beach, it’s a great place to get grounding. The practice encourages you to absorb beneficial electrons from the surface of the earth. When your feet touch the ground, these electrons flow in your body.
There is a growing trend among influencers and celebrities of walking barefoot. Believe it or not, the idea isn't novel. Science has been flaunting the benefits of walking barefoot for decades. Simply walking on the ground barefoot can unfold a cavalcade of health benefits. You regain your natural walking patterns, maintain your balance and build stronger muscles. Besides this, it could also improve your sleeping cycle, decrease stress, reduce pain, and enhance your overall well being.
Not only this, but your pets can also benefit from earthing. If your pet is anxious or has inflammatory disorders, many pet owners are purposely giving their pets more outside-time for earthing. The how-to is easy and can be lying on the ground with them, playing, walking with them in the grass or on the soil. The sidewalk doesn’t work, so go grounding on things nature put there, like the grass, dirt, or sand.
Raring to get out into your own backyard to start feeling the benefits of grounding? Pre-earthing planning is essential to keep bugs away including mosquitoes, ants, roaches, ticks, fleas, and more. Grounding is no fun when you’re covered in bugs.
It’s easy to prep your yard with Wondercide’s Outdoor Pest Control. This pest protection spray is plant-powered and works on mosquitoes, ants, roaches, fleas, ticks, and other bothersome bugs that might disturb you and your pets. The ready-to-use and refillable spray works without conventional ingredients and exceeds the same EPA effectiveness standards required for conventional products. When used as directed, it's safe around family and fur-babies, plus there’s no dry time needed before grounding can start to bring on the goodness. Eco-conscious families will also love that the residue is safe for beneficial bugs like bees and butterflies.
Use these plant-powered and powerful sprays, then have a great time with your pets and family outside.
Place for space.
Hot on the spring-trend list is decluttering. For your health and wellbeing, decluttering can prevent bugs and reduces dust, mold, and mildew which can trigger allergies or asthma. Clutter can literally be a safety hazard. It also contributes to anxiety, raises cortisol levels and stress, and lowers happiness.
Think about it: A cluttered office makes us feel overwhelmed and less productive. A clear, clean kitchen is easier to cook in. Donate all the things laying around that you no longer find useful. Clean out those cabinets, cupboards, and closets in your kitchen, living room, and bedrooms. One useful rule to go by: If you haven’t used an item in the past year, it’s likely you don’t need it. Take it little by little so that the act of decluttering doesn’t feel overwhelming and instead lightens your mood.
While you declutter, you’ll find your home, office, and personal places transform into clean and organized spaces. By the end of the process, you’ll have a great sense of accomplishment.
If you find bugs while you’re decluttering and want to get rid of them fast, reach for a plant-powered solution that’s safe around the whole family when you use it as directed.
Wondercide’s Ant & Roach aerosol quickly kills ants, roaches, carpet beetles, and silverfish, plus it kills many more common household bugs. Just point, spray, and wipe the bugs away. The aerosol is powered by carbon dioxide (CO2) with no ozone-depleting ingredients. You’re welcome, spring.
