Spring Has Sprung


Daylight saving time has ended, the clocks go forward on the 25th March and we’re looking forward to longer and (hopefully) sunnier days. After the cold and dark winter months, a refreshing and crisp new start is just what we need to dust away the winter cobwebs. To celebrate the start of spring, we’ve got top tips for the transition from winter to spring, along with some handy products for this season.

Now is the perfect time of the year to spring clean your home and brush away the winter blues. Maybe you’ve still got a few Christmas decorations shoved under the bed that you’ve been meaning to put away, or maybe you want to talk advantage of the sunshine to give your windows a good wipe. A spring clean helps you to mentally and physically adjust to the new season, whilst giving your home a good sprucing up.

As well as tidying up your home, it’s a good idea to have a potter around your garden, if you have one. Getting outdoors and enjoying the warmth and brand-new nature is a great way to improve your physical and mental health, whilst providing you with an opportunity to plant beautiful spring flowers. If you don’t have your own garden, a window box or indoor plants are perfect for brightening up your home and are easier to look after if you have limited mobility. Our ergonomic garden tools are just the ticket for enjoying a refreshing day gardening in the sunshine.

Whilst you’re admiring the beautiful spring flowers, floral-patterned things can help you get into the spring mood. Our stylish folding walking sticks¬†are the perfect companion for a springtime walk, as they provide stability when you’re out on a stroll and they feature an attractive floral design which is perfect for spring. If the weather is still slightly chilly, you can easily fold up your stick and pop it in your bag whilst you visit a cafe to warm up.

Chilly weather aside, spring is definitely much warmer and any time spent outside is worth the risk of catching those April showers. If you struggle getting out and about due to mobility issues, a rollator is a walking aid which is ideal for enjoying a springtime stroll. Rollators help to provide stability if you struggle with balance, and some even feature a handy seat when you fancy a breather. With our wide range of rollators on our website, it’s easy and straightforward¬†to get outdoors this spring.
