It's A Bummer Sitting in this Office All Day!-Springtime Anticipation

As Spring approaches, I just can’t shake off the urge to want to spend as much time as possible outdoors enjoying the sunshine and gorgeous weather! Are you just sitting in your cubicles daydreaming about being outside when the weather is beautiful? Are you trying to get a glimpse of the sun every chance you get during the day, walking to the bathroom or to the water fountain? While we’re all tremendously blessed to be employed, during this time of the year, it’s a bummer sitting in stuffy cubicles when the warm wind is blowing, birds are chirping and flowers are blooming. Can you relate to that “bummer” feeling? How many of you are feeling the same way? Springtime has a calming effect on my soul and it sparks my creativity. We can use this energy to inspire us to do things we’ve been saying we’d do all year – remember those New Year resolutions?? If you are like me, you’re probably working in a 9-to-5 type of setting with two fifteen minute breaks, one in the morning and one in the evening. It is my suggestion that we cure the springtime stuck-in-the-office blues by restarting our fitness plan, catching up on stalled projects, and maybe re-focusing on healthy eating and nutrition.
