Spring Fever

spring fever


It’s getting warmer outside, there’s a change in the air, and chances are you’re showing at least one of these spring fever symptoms. We swear we’ve caught it like it’s a cold, we joke about it, and we get excited when the first outdoor bar opens since winter’s leave. But did you know that there is biological proof that such physical symptoms 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’ negative response to the rise in pollen count. But according to some sources, 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.

In other words: there’s a scientific reason why you’re feeling mega energized right now, so don’t let anyone tell you it’s all in your head. Got that? Great. Here are the telltale signs you’ve got a bad case of spring fever.

  1. The sudden urge to jog
  2. You have started eating lighter
  3. You can’t stop smiling
  4. Cleaning your Home is something you are looking forward to doing
  5. Getting Outside is a Topic Everyday
