Have you ever noticed the seasonal change affects our mood?
Look around your workplace and community. If the weather outside is delightful, co-workers and neighbors are upbeat. When the weather turns cold and damp, our moods take a downward turn.
Let's all think spring and be confident that it is here to stay.
With spring thoughts in mind, let's think about outdoor activities.
