There’s music in the air as we welcome Spring, the warmer weather is taking hold of our beautiful country, and providing bright colourful hues across the landscape.
It’s an incredible time to enjoy the beautiful weather reconnect with yourself, make unforgettable memories. Spring is great for those much deserved family vacations, beach outings, braais by the pool and many other fun summer activities.
In South Africa both spring (September-November) and autumn (March-May) have predictable weather, with crisp nights and balmy days through-out the country.

3 Ways to relax this Spring/Summer
1. Take some time to spend outdoors. When we spend our time in nature, it naturally calms us and gives us a feeling of inner peace. The bonus is natural sunlight, which gives us our vitamin D – great for the bones and a mood booster.
2. Unplug from technology. Use the summer as an excuse to be in vacation mode. Even if you only can do this once a week, take that time to connect to nature by unplugging from technology.
3. Start a fitness program that is fun and adventurous. Go hiking, bike riding, etc. Do something new and fun! Make it better by bringing a friend.
