It's getting warmer outside, there's a change in the air, and chances are you're feeling spring fever symptoms. But did you know that there is biological proof that such physical symptoms really do exist?
No, you won't have an actual fever. You won’t be bed-ridden, and the itching you feel is probably just related to your allergies.
But according to some doctors, human beings experience a real energy surge in spring due to an increase in sunlight. Apparently the change in daylight triggers a change in the amounts of hormones our brains produce, including an altered amount of melatonin, which is a hormone that influences sleep cycles as well as mood changes.
spring fe·ver /spriNG ˈfēvər/ noun a feeling of restlessness and excitement felt at the beginning of spring.
So, get out there and enjoy the extra hours of sunlight, feel the warmth on your face, and, most of all,FEEL JOY!
Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!” - Robin Williams (1951–2014)
