Refresh Your Routine

MISSION, KS -- (Marketwired) -- 03/19/14 -- (Family Features) The changing season evokes a sense of renewal, inside and out, making it the perfect opportunity to rejuvenate you and your surroundings. It's time to let a little sunlight in and celebrate the warmer months ahead.

From trying a bold, new hue with living room accents to taking a yoga class, there are numerous ways to reinvent yourself and your surroundings as you mentally prep for the season ahead -- even if the weather is saying otherwise. Use your senses and embrace the unbridled joy that comes with the change of seasons -- from the bright pops of color that enliven your home to the comforting floral scents that enhance your mood. Use these simple tips to transition into this exciting and vibrant time of year.

Freshen up your home
From the drapes that adorn your windows to the artwork that lines the walls -- your home is a true reflection of your personality and style. As you break free from last season's routine, be sure to update your space too. Store away old decor and make room for more upbeat, invigorated gear. Add vibrant pops of color and bright patterns with new accessories for a simple update that feels fresh.

Wake up your senses
Fragrance offers another easy way to invigorate your routine. Choose fragrances that embody the rejuvenation and excitement of the season. The new Glade Limited Edition Spring Collection for example, is a refreshing assortment of five fragrances inspired by the uplifting feelings of the season, such as Lift Off and Let Loose.

Make time for hobbies you love
As the weather warms up, you will likely find yourself attending more get-togethers, outdoor sporting events and other celebrations with friends and family. As schedules become increasingly hectic, be sure to set aside time for the hobbies you love most. Whether it's gardening, cooking or reading, scheduling time for the activities you enjoy will help ensure they happen. After all, making "me time" a priority can benefit your overall happiness in more ways than one.

Try something new
This is a time of new beginnings and what better way to start fresh than by trying something new? Work a new hobby into your routine, such as yoga or painting. Or, attempt something you've always been afraid to try. The thrill of accomplishing something you haven't done or feared doing will leave you feeling empowered.

Feel the breeze
When the birds are chirping and the tulips are blooming, take advantage of the beautiful, mild weather. Incorporate more outdoor activities into your schedule and find ways to enjoy time outside each day. Some fun outdoor activities include biking to work, hosting a dinner party on your patio or planting a garden. And while you're at home, be sure open up those windows and welcome the lovely breeze inside.

Freshen up your bathroom by adding soaps or room sprays in your favorite fresh scents, like lavender or citrus.

Invigorate your senses
Liven up your home with fragrance, while awakening your taste buds by trying new recipes with seasonal fruits, vegetables and spices like refreshing mint, zesty grapefruits and sweet cherries.

Bring in some buds

When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
