I wish I was outside lapping up the sun and feeling it's wonderful warmth, but instead I am finding myself turning up the heat in the house as it's a cold day today. Like many of you I am seeing the beautiful crocus full in bloom and yes the daffodils have even lifted there leaves from the heavy soil but alas the ideal spring weather is not quite here yet.
A reminder to everyone to keep that spring weather in our mind and know that it is coming and that we will all be able to enjoy the sunshine soon. :)
Take time out to find some time for yourselves as this is important to keep a balanced equilibrium, it's been a long cold winter so it's important to keep up with our vitamin D at least until we are assured of some sunny days. For those of you feeling the blues a known tonic is:
Hypericum perforatum, also known as St John's wort, is a flowering plant species of the genus Hypercium and a medicinal herb that is sold over the counter as a treatment for depression.
There are some conservative warnings of this product so take care to read them.
University of Maryland however have done studies and have found St Johns wart to be beneficial but does also point out side effects if you are taking other medication.
I am putting this out there simply as information and I am sure you will all take your health seriously and make sure you do your reading and homework on any substance you are or will be taking whether it be prescription or herbal.
Have yourselves a great day, keep warm and keep calm.
