Feeling friskier than usual? Do men and women, even that awkward, gangly barista at Starbucks seem to be getting sexier? Have you been daydreaming about going away somewhere sunny and tropical and dancing ‘till dawn? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then, take it from an expert (yours truly) - you are infected with the highly contagious Spring Fever.
Warning: Spring Fever is very real and should not go untreated.
Scientists have confirmed that Spring Fever really does exist. It all begins with the eyes, specifically the retina - the part of the eye connected to the brain by the optic nerve that naturally reacts to variations in the amount of daylight. This triggers hormonal changes. Particularly important is the adjustment in melatonin, a hormone that affects our mood and how we sleep. As a result of light changes, the body naturally produces less melatonin during spring, causing a lift in mood, a reduced desire to sleep and an increase in sexual appetite.
However, scientists weren’t the first to comment about the effect spring has on our mood; poets and authors have written for centuries that sex drives and energy levels surge in the spring.
“It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!” ~ Mark Twain
So whatever should you do? Fear not my little lambs: fortunately, I have the cure. I know it all too well because I had a dreadful case of Spring Fever as well. That is, until I learned how to treat it. The best prescription for Spring Fever is: Spring Break!
But you don’t have to go to Cancun or be in college to take a Spring Break – you can create your own version of this fun-spirited holiday at home. It’s all about embracing your sexiness and by doing so the world will appear brighter and lighter, with sunshine and happiness all around you.
This Spring - the Vernal Equinox begins on March 20, 2012, at 1:14 A.M.
So, go ahead Goddesses, enjoy Spring Fever, celebrate your sexy self and strut into spring!
