6. Did you know that doctors now believe that spring fever — a colloquialism for that giddy burst of energy experienced when temperatures rise — is actually rooted in brain science?
Since the springtime brings longer and brighter days, we are exposed to more light. That light exposure triggers our brains to release less melatonin, the brain chemical that makes us sleepy in the winter, and more seratonin, a mood-elevating neurotransmitter. Whatever the reason, one thing is for sure: Spring fever is the perfect cure for the winter blues.</strong>

Poem Friday – Happy Birthday Mika!

Today is a special day for me, my granddaughters birthday
She is a ray of sunshine, great to have around in every way

Those 12 years have gone so fast, just a flash
We don’t always see those moments because we are rushing, have to dash

She has turned into a beautiful flower
Great sense of humor, playful, busy every hour

She has great musical talent, which I admire
She rides horses with a passion of fire

Watching her grow has been a blessing and reflective
Her personality bright and very infective

Well happy birthday Mika, you are 12 today
May you have fun in the best possible way

Nana L
