Natural remedies to feel good during the change of spring season.
In spring the days get longer, the extra hours of daylight make us feel good and the temperature becomes milder. Winter is about to give way to the season of awakening and the explosion of nature. However, with spring also comes the typical fatigue of this season. This is a malaise that, every year from March to June, affects a large part of the population, and is associated with a feeling of exhaustion and weakness. We speak of “spring asthenia” from the Greek “Astenos” which means “without strength”.
Changes in temperature and light require extra effort to adapt, and some individuals suffer more than others.
Because of the greater amount of sunlight, in spring we tend to lengthen our day.
This change of style, especially at the beginning of the season, makes us feel more tired. Light influences our physiology and consequently our brain activity, wake-sleep rhythm and mood.
Those who suffer from the so-called seasonal depression (Seasonal Affective Disorder) in early spring may be victims of more evident mood swings, difficulty concentrating and headaches.
