The simplest explanation for the spring fever would be the imbalance in our bodies after the long winter months. Our immune system is weakened by the lack of sunlight and the small amounts of fresh fruit and vegetables we eat during that time.
The lack of exercise and unhealthy eating leads to toxins accumulating in our bodies. During the colder months the metabolism slows down and it is harder to process food. That is why when spring comes we often feel tired and unable to work.
The first symptoms of the spring fever are: lack of appetite, insomnia, headache, constant fatigue and loss of sense of humor.
Here are a few tips on how to fight the spring fever:
Eat healthy. Eat more fresh fruit and vegetables. We all know how important that is but we often ignore it. Start by eating at least one apple a day.
For breakfast choose pasta-like products. They will give you the energy boost to get you through out the whole day. You will be surprised with the effect this will have when combined with an apple. Eat wholewheat bread, dry figs and beans. At the same time try to eat less sweets but drink at least a liter and a half of water a day.
You can contact your GP about prescribing you vitamins and minerals especially to fight the fatigue. Usually those are vitamins В12, В6, В1, В2, С and D and magnesium.
It is important to be able to fully relax during this time of the year. If you can, take small naps during the day, listen to music all the time, read your favorite book one more time, make love before going to sleep.
Don’t work too hard. This will make you more nervous and will affect you and your co-workers in a bad way.
Make an appointment for a massage. If you don’t have the time or the money for that, ask your loved one.
Always refresh the air in the room you are in.
Change your wardrobe. Even though it’s still chilly, try to pick more colorful clothes. It is a proved fact that the color orange brightens the mood, never mind if it is in the color of your clothes or the color of your juice in the morning.
Last but not least – enjoy life and smile!
