Spring fever

Nature is waking up after winter, everything is blooming 🌸, spring is here and with that – spring fever…
:::
Spring fever is any of a number of mood, physical, or behavioral changes, which may be experienced coinciding with the arrival of spring, particularly restlessness, laziness, and even amorousness 🙄.
:::
Symptoms:
🔸️feeling week, powerless 😮‍💨
🔸️sleepiness 😴
🔸️mood swings 😵‍💫
🔸️headaches 🤕
🔸️trouble with sleeping 😵
Have you experienced it? I gotta say that I am feeling sleepy/powerless and can’t get a good sleep lately 🤷‍♀️.

How can we fix/avoid that? 🤔
➡️ Stay physically active! 💪 Go for walks 🚶‍♀️, bike rides 🚴‍♂️, jogging – try spending as much time outside as possible. This way you expand capacity of your lungs and get your breath deeper 🤗. You also boost release of endorphins – happy hormones and lower release of stress hormones – cortisol 🤩.

➡️ Make sure you sleep well 🛌 – sleep 7-8h, try making a routine and go to sleep same time every night. If you have time – take 15-20min naps during the day too, they are proved to be very healthy! ☺️ Remember to relax in the evening, avoid blue light (no phone in bed!), make yourself a tea ☕️, have a bath 🛀 and/or light a scented candle

➡️ Remember about vitamins! 🔆 Supply your organism with as many vitamins as possible and do it in a natural way (no pills 💊) – drink smoothies and/or fresh squeezed juices – mix fresh fruit 🍒 and vegetables 🥕 but also mix various vitamins (e.g. vitamin C that you’ll get from parsley, kiwi 🥝 or lemon 🍋; vitamin E present in nuts 🥜 or olive oil; vitamin A from kale, spinach 🍃 or carrot; magnesium from banana 🍌, dates or avocado 🥑)

➡️ Last but not least: drink water! 💧 Make sure to drink 2-2,5 l of water (fresh water, juices, tea etc. don’t count 😉). Drink regularly throughout the day (e.g. 1 glass every hour)

Easy right? 😉
