It has to be said, spring is, by far, my favourite season. Having been out and about recently, I’ve noticed that there’s more of a spring in my step (pun wholly intended, sorry not sorry) and here’s all the reasons why…
- Everyone’s nicer
It’s a fact that when the sun comes out and the days get longer, people get happier and happy people tend to be nice people. Seeing smiles on people’s faces and random acts of kindness are infectious and put everyone in a better mood. Plus it makes for a much less anger-inducing commute.
2. The smell is the best
Spring smell is my all time favourite smell. If I could bottle it up and smell it forever I would. The air is fresher, especially after a spring shower, and the smell of blossoms and freshly cut grass is everywhere.
3. It’s colourful
I think we all forget what colour looks like when winter rolls around. We all wear black and grey, the trees have no leaves, it’s dark all the time, the list could go on. So when the sun comes out and the leaves and flowers start budding it’s like a colour explosion happened and you don’t know where to look. By the time summer hits us, we’re kind of over it.
4. It’s a way better time for resolutions
I don’t know why people decided that New Years Day was the best time to get fit/ eat better/ spend less blah blah blah. January is unarguably the most depressing time of the year and no one is feeling motivated in the post Christmas slump. Spring, on the other hand, is all about new beginnings and energy and that’s so much more motivating.
