Spring Fever

Feeling a sudden spring in your step?

Perhaps a dazzling sense of delirium?

It’s called spring fever, my friend—and none of us are immune.

Thankfully, the symptoms are generally … sensational!

“There’s more daylight, so people have more energy, sleep a little less,” Sanford Auerbach, M.D., director of the Sleep Disorders Center at Boston University, told Web MD.

Plus, levels of serotonin, an important mood-regulating hormone, soar in the springtime. The LA Times reports, “This mood-elevating neurotransmitter may be at the root of the giddiness, energy boost, and enthusiasm that characterize spring fever.”

No cure for me, thanks. I’m just fine letting the fever run its course.

    A bunny with a leash, running (hopping?!?) a steeplechase course. Now, that’s spring fever you gotta love!

  2. oh yeah I got it bad, and we hardly are having spring here, hard frosts every night and very WINDY and unseasonably chilly but still mostly sunny. But way better than the worst winter I ever remember. Every tiny flower or bud is hard won this spring.
