With more hours of sunlight, warmer weather and blooming flowers, it’s no wonder many of us begin to feel refreshed and renewed as spring approaches.

However, it’s also by springtime that most of our January New Year’s resolutions have fallen by the wayside. Spring is, therefore, the ideal time to treat yourself to a fresh start and set some goals for the year ahead. Here we’ve rounded up fourgreatspringresolutionsthatmighthelpyouenjoylife that little bit more:

1. Visit somewhere new

Fresh air, a spot of sunshine, green fields, country walks; what could be better than Britain’s countryside in spring?

The clocks go forward on the last Sunday in March, officially kicking off British Summer Time. This spring, why not consider a trip to Kent, affectionately nicknamed “The Garden of England” to see what’s in bloom at Hever Castle, Goodnestone Park Gardens, or Leeds Castle?

Or if you’re in the mood for something a bit more romantic, why not rent a car and head to the Cotswolds or Glyndebourne? Wineries in Kent and Sussex are open for tastings and dining, even though this year’s grape harvest is still months away.

Those who find themselves in the mood for a wilder adventure might like to visit Wales for a walk around the coast. If bird-watching is your thing, consider a trip to the Farne Islands, where colourful puffins take up residence between April and July.

If you’d like to spend more time exploring new places, wherever they may be, check out our inspired British breaks travel guides and our nearest Hertz rental car branches. We are sure to have a vehicle to suit your journey.

2. Freshen up your home with a Spring Clean

Open the windows, turn on some upbeat music, (we’ve got a few  Spotify playlists that may help), and clean your home from top to bottom. Spring cleaning is a ritual that might leave you feeling pleasantly exhausted once you’ve cleared away anything that fails to bring you joy.

After you’ve done your share of dusting, vacuuming, scrubbing, and mopping up, why not dig deep into your wardrobe and clear away items that you won’t be wearing anytime soon? This makes way for a few trendy new pieces or if you prefer, leaves you with a more minimalistic wardrobe that makes dressing a little easier each day.

3. Care for Britain’s environment

You’ve taken out the recycling along with your spring cleaning. What’s next? Here are some ideas for doing your part in the effort to freshen up Britain’s environment:

4. Be a tourist in your own town

In this day and age, our lives are often so busy that we don't get to spend enough time exploring what’s on our doorstep. This particularly rings true in big cities, where new shops, cafes and areas of interest are popping up all the time.

So this spring, why not go on an adventure a little closer to home?

Waking up in a hotel or an Airbnb is a great way to get inspired to explore, so if you live in a rural part of town, head into the city for a night, or visa-versa. Make sure to Google top places to visit so you have an itinerary for the next day, and don’t forget to find a cafe or restaurant you’ve never been to before to stop for lunch. Oh, and make sure to take lots of photos - this will just add to the ‘holiday’ feel!

Alternatively, you can also vow to spend more time in your local area by setting off on a little walk or jog each morning. Instead of your usual route, try switching it up, and take time to enjoy the scenery along the way. Similarly, next time you go out to eat, why not try the newest food joint? You'll be surprised how these little changes can open your eyes to how great your own area is, as well as giving you a taste for adventure.

So there you have it! Spring resolutions can be a lot of fun – and they can bring some unexpected benefits your way. Let us know if you’ve decided to take up any Spring Resolutions and send us a Tweet @HertzUK
