Enjoying a Mindful Spring in London

The winter season has passed and the days are getting longer. It’s a sure sign that Spring is right on our doorstep. For many of us, the feeling won’t come soon enough. It can be difficult to go through your daily routine in the midst of Winter weather, especially in London. Ducking into the tube to avoid the rain whilst going too and from work in the dark is enough to affect anyone’s mood in the long-term.

Research has demonstrated that long period spent in poor light conditions along with a lack of Vitamin D can have real consequences for your mental health! Now that the nights are getting longer, you might be looking for some ideas on how you can enjoy the capital this Easter. Read on to discover more.

Reconnect with London’s Green Spaces

The parks system in London is one of the best in the world. You have no shortage of places to explore. Hyde Park, Regent Park and Green Park are all easily accessible from the city centre and offer an oasis from the chaos of the concrete jungle. Remember when the weather improves, you won’t be the only one taking to the streets, so be sure to check out some great guides to London’s best parks. And don’t forget the likes of Hamstead Health for a strong taste of the countryside!

Dial in to London’s Springtime Events

As the weather improves, you almost get a sense of the city and its culture coming out of hibernation. Cafes pour onto streets with outdoor seating, rowers take to the Thames and events bring London back to life. Any veterans of the capital know that there is a festival or event around every corner. The likes of the Eid Festival in Trafalgar Square, the Chealsea Flower Show, London Pride and Trooping the Colour  are all popular, but there’s much more to suit all tastes.

Unwind in Covent Garden

One of the most iconic districts of London makes for the perfect place to spend a Springtime afternoon. Covent Garden has delighted Londoners since it’s days as a Victorian flower market. The market tradition is still alive and well today, with traders selling their wares throughout the week. For those looking to widen their pallet, they can check out some of the amazing international dining options that you can enjoy as part of a trip.

Take to the bicycle saddle!

While London has an effective public transport network, one of the best ways to see the landmarks and to explore some of the aforementioned parks is by bicycle! If you’re a visitor to the city, don’t panic. There is a rental option via Santander Cycles. It’s easy to use and makes bike usage easily. There are lots of helpful resources around that can help prepare you for taking to the streets of London and which routes take in all the main landmarks. If you can avoid traffic-heavy areas, it can be a great way to get around whilst avoiding the stress of a busy tube journey.

London in Spring is undefeated. Get the very most out of your mindfulness by exploring the city, seeking out its charms and soaking up the good Spring weather that we’ve all been craving!
