Happy Wellness Wednesday! I hope everyone has had the opportunity to find a way to enjoy the Spring weather that finally arrived. Personally, I have greatly enjoyed being able to ride my bike outside and run without wearing 5 layers of clothing. I have three articles to share with you all today, all related to wellness and spring.
1. Spring Cleaning: Many enjoy the opportunity to open windows in their home and go through a deeper level of cleaning to welcome spring. One additional area that might need some attention includes electronics. As a technology coach and staff member, I highly recommend checking out this guide to spring cleaning your computer- Spring Cleaning Your Computer.
2. Outdoor Dining in the Madison Area: One fun way to celebrate the arrival of beautiful weather is to enjoy one of the many outdoor dining opportunities that the Madison area offers. The article below shares some of the most popular destinations. My top two include Wednesdays at Cress Spring Bakery (wood fired pizza and live music just outside Blue Mounds State Park, insider tip: call your order in by 12 noon to avoid standing in line for an hour or more), my second favorite is a tie between picnics at Concert on the Square and strolling the Dane County Farmers Market and enjoying fresh food and empanadas from Caracas Empanadas (a food truck). Comment on this post and share your favorite outdoor dining in Madison! Link to article- 14 Outdoor Dining Experiences.
3. 2018 has shown some new wellness trends, one of the most interesting being the new "Wellness Kitchen" and the rise of minimalism and vegan-ism. Many attribute this to the social media app, Instagram. You can check out more details in the 2018 Wellness Report.
