TEMPERATURES ARE MODERATE
Spring marks the end of winter and the transition to summer. The Earth’s axis is angled between its closest and furthest position from the Sun, when temperatures are the most extreme. You can finally ditch the winter layers.
YOU FEEL HAPPIER!
Exposure to sunlight increases the hormone
serotonin in your brain, which makes you feel happy. There are more hours in the day – more time to get out and move, get things done.
YOU FEEL ENERGIZED
Exposure to sunlight decreases the chemical melatonin in your body during the day and increases it at night, which helps you sleep better.
TREES SUDDENLY HAVE LEAVES & PLANTS TURN GREEN
Spring brings growth back to plants and trees. A successful spring leaf growth ensures a cool canopy to relax under during the hot summer. It’s amazing what a little sunlight, moisture and warm soil can do for plants and grass. Plants convert sunlight into energy and produce the pigment chlorophyll, which turns them green. And it’s not just nice to look at—a study found that people who saw green before a challenge came up with more creative solutions. Spring’s green plant life will hopefully do the same!
Colorful flowers bloom in the spring, signaling to the bees that they are ready for pollination. And science has proven that looking at buttercups can make you happy. Not sure dandelions do the same! A study found that people in yellow rooms at cocktail parties were more lively and talkative. Spring’s yellow flowers could also lift your mood.
THE SNOW IS GONE & YOU CAN OPEN YOUR WINDOWS
Increasing temperatures means that snow and ice will no longer plague your getting out and about. Open your windows to allow the breeze to refresh your home.
