This month’s For the Health of it Prompt is: The Changing Seasons
It is spring here in the Northern Hemisphere and with it comes longer days and (hopefully) warmer weather. Around me the trees have blossomed and now have lots of leaves on them. The birds are singing as they build nests and care for their young. Spring in the UK is often wet, sometimes windy but always variable. We started spring with warm and sunny weather and I think that helped lift some of the gloom of these strange times. One problem for me though has been that my hay fever allergy has been far worse than usual.
I know that some parts of the world don’t have such defined seasons and in others autumn is arriving and I’d like to know more about that. This month, I would love you to share your thoughts on the changing seasons and what they mean to you. Or if the seasons don’t really change is there anything else in the environment that affects your health and wellbeing.
Some Prompt Questions
- Do you suffer from Seasonally Affective Disorder (SAD), what effect do the changing seasons have?
- What is your favourite time of year and why?
- How do you manage the effects of changing seasons.
- What do you notice out in the natural environment that tells you a new season is on the way?
- How do you manage things like allergies?
- If your seasons don’t change, tell us about that. The UK is such a seasonal place we can have 4 in a day!
