As soon as the crocuses and daffodils start breaking through the soil, people often feel their spirits lifting. Spring is such a miraculous season that it has been called the season of birth and renewal. Baby bunnies are born; birds prepare their nests and lay their eggs, the signs of new life are everywhere.
As we enjoy the beauty and sense of awakening that comes with spring, it’s the perfect time to anchor into the hope of the season and embrace a new approach towards wellness.
You can start by being fully present in the moment. Taking a walk, listening to the birds chirping and watching nature unveil its colorful display of beauty can help you feel energized.
According to an article in the Atlantic, “spending more time outside on clear, sunny days, particularly in the spring, was found to increase mood, memory, and openness to new ideas.“ This makes springtime the perfect time to open your heart and try to integrate your mind and body on the path towards conceiving.
“Since mind and body are intertwined, then our efforts to heal the mind will have a positive effect on the body,” explains Dr. Alice Domar, Executive Director of the Domar Center for Mind/Body Health, Director of Integrative Care at Boston IVF, and Associate Professor at Harvard Medical School.
