Yes, It’s May and in most places, at least in North America, the weather is beginning to warm and people’s thoughts turn to outside, vacations, cottages and the fun and relaxation that comes with the season ahead . However, for some, spring is a difficult time. There are some people with a form of seasonal affective disorder that actually have a difficult time with anxiety and mood in the spring of the year. Also, this time of year is sometimes simply a challenging time for some due to life circumstances.
It’s important to get the appropriate treatment and consult with a professional on this. For most people, it’s important to take advantage of this time of year and really incorporate things like exercise, leisure and relaxation – in whatever form you wish- into your routine. Try reading your morning paper with your tea/coffee outside on the front step, do your morning yoga on the patio , take that evening walk in the spring air. Cardiovascular exercise is always a good idea for mental and physical health.
I’d like to hear your ideas and comments.
