We love spring! We really do! We love pretty much everything about it, except these ten things on our list. We love how you get that spring feeling of turning over a new leaf, we love spring vegetables, we love the heat and the leaves and the flowers. If were to make a list of things we love about spring, the list would probably reach up to 300, that’s why we decided to make a shorter list of things we hate about spring. You simply can’t love everything about a season, no matter how great that season is, and springtime is pretty awesome! Hope you agree with us!
10. Our Job
Yeah, that’s right, our job is one of those things we hate about spring. Having to work when the weather is so lovely seems more like a punishment than a way to make a living. If you’re lucky enough to be able to bring your work home with you, then we suggest opening your windows and letting that wonderful spring scent inside your home. You’re not going to work better, but who cares? Spring has finally sprung!
9. All the Shows are Ending
Spring is when all the great TV shows’ seasons are ending. We’re left with just a handful of shows and we have to wait until the end of spring, even fall or God forbid, winter, for them to return on our screens. But I guess it’s for the better: more time to spend outside of the house!
8. Colds and Flus
Everything comes back to life in the spring and that includes viruses and bacteria. If you’re lucky enough to have escaped getting a spring cold, then congratulations! We suggest you take some Echinacea and pollen to strengthen your immune system to avoid getting sick. If you’re already sick, our heart goes out to you! We’ve been there and done that!
7. Strong Sun
The sun is getting stronger and we have to start thinking about sun protection all over again. It was nice when we were able to leave the house without putting on sunscreen, but those days have passed. Take good care of your skin, protect it against the harmful UV rays and use sunscreen. Otherwise you risk skin cancer and premature aging. The sun is great, but not for our skin!
6. Wardrobe Changes
Springtime is when we put out winter clothes away and take out the summer ones. But with the weather being so unstable, we’re left shaking most of the time. We suggest you wait until May to put everything away, this way you’ll avoid having to dig for that coat you never thought you would use until November!
5. Excessive Light
Light is good, but after a hard winter of barely any light, the excessive light of spring hits you like a shovel. Your eyes are still getting adjusted to the new light, that’s why we strongly recommend you wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from the UV rays.
4. The Rain
One day we’ve got sunshine and fully clouds and the other, we’ve got rain and cold. Spring likes to play trick on our poor souls and it will raise our hopes up of short skirts, T-shirts and frolicking in the sun, only to crush them hours later. That’s another thing we hate about spring!
3. Spring Fever
Almost 40% or people are experiencing some degree of spring fever where they will feel tired and lacking concentration. Sleep is pretty much everything a person with spring fever has on their mind and a decrease in appetite is also expected. You can wait for the symptoms of spring fever to disappear or you can do something about it, such as eat lots of green vegetables, go outside and take up as much sun as possible and exercise for a half an hour a day, preferably in the sun.
2. Daylight Savings Time
While it is great to have more daylight, it takes some of us quite a while to get used to the new changes, the extra hour of light. Most people have a hard time waking up in the morning after daylight savings time and it takes a few days if not weeks to get adjusted to the time. One of those things we hate about spring!
1. Spring Allergies
Spring allergies can range from a couple of sneezes to a full-blown allergy episode with sneezing, eye watering, itchy throat, itchy hands and a multitude of other allergy signs and symptoms. If you’re experiencing some light sneezing and a bit of itchy throat, then there’s no need to take any medicine, as the condition will resolve on its own in a week or so, as soon as your body gets used to the environment; but if getting outside is becoming a nuisance, then talk to your doctor and they’ll prescribe some antiallergenic medicine.
