Spring sets the stage for switching things up in each area of your life.
By Mike Fleming

No other season spells transition quite like spring. As gay Atlanta dusts off its winter survival mindset for patio parties and Sunday fun days, it’s time for a paradigm shift, and not a moment too soon.

We’ll help change up your fragrance in the pages to come, but to make way for all aspects of Newly Budding Springtime You, let’s clear the cobwebs in other areas as well.

Don’t worry. This is the kind of spring-cleaning you won’t mind doing. When it comes to your closet, table, gym, and even your love life, a spring change will do you good.

Change Clothes

Literally. Move your heaviest sweaters and coats into storage – not that you were able to wear many of them in gay Atlanta’s warmest winter ever – and break out the windbreakers, tees and maybe even shorts. Moving your freshest looks to the front of the closet is an instant switch to your mindset. Now you’re ready to freshen the rest of your spring spaces.

Cuisine Conversion

Even if you’re not one for dietary ‘cutting’ and ‘shredding’ to hit Maximum Abs, that winter weight must go. Trade soups for salads, and forgo hearty hearth-made helpings for pleasing portions of protein plates. Maybe you indulged since the holidays and never really got back on track. Now’s the time.

Exercise Exchanges

The season for bulking – a term you may have used too loosely lately to allow for extra poundage – is over. Replace resistance with runs – at least some of the time. We won’t take your lifting away, but bro, do you even cardio? Your swimsuit will thank you.

Relationship Replacement

We’re not saying you need an upgrade, and we’d never take you from the love of your life. Still, if that guy was just keeping you warm as a placeholder, say sayonara and make room for that park candy and funday fare. You’ll both be free to acknowledge, appreciate and move on.
