Now that the long dark times are over, it is time for all of us to ‘spring’ out of our warm cozy blankets and kiss adventure. Spring is the season for rebirth, regrowth and renewal not just for the flora but also for the fauna like you and me.
Now that spring is here, I have compiled a list of my top 5 suggestions on how to kick start into a brighter lifestyle.

1. Grab a book
As we all know Sheffield is home to some amazing scenic places. Just grab one of your favourite novels and read it in utter tranquility- be it reading a romance novel while sitting at the Endcliffe Village pond or be it reading an autobiography at the Weston Park. Be it imagining yourself at a crime scene in the Whiteley Woods or escaping imaginary horror at Agden Reservoir. Just grab a book… and read it good.
2. Support team Wednesday
Again, something that being at Sheffield that excites many is being able to watch one of the matches and make ever lasting memories. Now, I have no opinion on football and I know as much about it as Einstein knew about art – if you know what I mean. Yet, whether you like it or not, I am sure it would be a fun experience. Just tagging a few friends along can give you a break from the struggle of studying and it will refresh your mind; of course, you will have vented out the frustration by commenting on how the game should have been played in the first place... like a true fan.
3. Get to the Peak!
Its spring and that means, warm sunny morning and longer days. Hooray! Take a day trip and please your mind and soul to the vibrant images of the Peak district. Hiking or even cycling at the peak will give you an escape from the tall buildings and busy lifestyle of the city centre. Not every city can boast to be modern and yet close to nature like Sheffield. So hold this opportunity by the hand and bring out the boots and cycles.
4.It is time to empty your pockets.
This is probably one of those necessary evil suggestions. Spring means time to pack up the coats and get some new shorts. With the warm weather approaching all a girl or even a guy needs is new outfits. Spend the day in the company of friends jumping from one store to another and bagging all the new spring collection – after all even Cinderella teaches us that any problem can be solved with a new pair of heels.
5. Be a tourist in your own city.
Take a ride to the Kelham Island museum, ride on the Wheel of Sheffield, picnic at the Botanical Gardens, visit historic buildings like the Cathedral and Beauchief Abbey church or if you are too nifty on the pocket, just walk into the Weston Park Museum and enjoy the history of the city of Steel.

Bottom line, get up and get going… because spring is nature’s way of saying lets party!
