5 Reasons To Be Excited About The Upcoming Spring Season

There's just something about being surrounded by nature that makes you feel so good.


The first day of spring just passed and let me be the first one to tell you how excited I am for the new season. I mean, who doesn't like spring? It means we're one season closer to Summer and one season farther from Winter (aka the worst season ever).

1. Hello, daylight savings!

Daylight Savings in the spring is basically the best thing ever. The sun sets way later in the day, which means I'm not as sleepy as much. At first, I realized I am actually losing an hour of sleep because of the time change and thought my life would be miserable. Much to my surprise, I found myself being more energetic and more productive because of the length of daylight. It motivates me to do more throughout the day.

2. Insta-worthy pictures

We all know how great Instagram pictures look when they're taken outside under natural lighting. Now that the snow is melted and the grass is finally growing, pictures will come out a lot better now that it's spring. Personally, I love going to parks and gardens with my friends just to take pictures for Instagram. Trust me, now that the flowers are started to grow again, your Instagram followers will be blown away by your pictures.

3. Warmer weather... FINALLY

If it's one thing I love it's definitely warmer weather and NOT having to wear three different layers every time I step outside. I love not freezing my fingers off while walking to class and wearing winter boots everywhere I go. I can finally go outside without a jacket and honestly, it's one of the most freeing things in the world. I feel a lot happier when it's warmer outside and if that's not a cure to my winter depression I don't know what is.

4. Grow plants in my backyard

One thing I've always wanted to do was grow my own plants. I try to do it every year but for some reason, half of the plants I grow end up dying. Despite the unfortunate death of my plants, I still try and grow new ones every year. I enjoy planting and gardening and I love the way it makes me feel. Surrounding myself with greenery is important for me and taking care of something, even a plant, definitely makes me motivated to stay positive. There's just something about being surrounded by nature that makes you feel so good.

5. Closer to summer vacation

Spring has a lot to offer and it kind of gives us a little sneak peek into the summer season. Even though we still have school during spring, the weather, nature, and the long days give us the motivation to end the semester a good note. We're almost in the homestretch here, guys! Spring semester is almost over and before you know it, we'll be done with final exams too. Here's to a new season of spring.
