Seidel: Spring into something new
Today marks the first day of spring. As temperatures rise and the ground thaws, winter’s melancholy melts away. Birds begin to chirp as the world seems to start anew. While blooming flowers and budding trees might be a few weeks away, springtime is ripe with new beginnings.
This refreshing season motivates us in many ways. Spring cleaning allows us to refresh our homes and let in the sunshine. Spring makes us feel better. It’s scientifically proven – according to a 2002 study by the Baker Research Institute in Melbourne, Australia, sunlight can increase the body’s production of serotonin, which lifts mood and increases energy.
With that in mind, springtime is the perfect time to get active with your family. Plant something green, go on a picnic or fly a kite. Or why not try something entirely new? Have you always wanted to ballroom dance? Now is the time.
