Spring Forward. Pros and Cons

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being and Peak Human Performance.

I don’t know about you, but the day after a time change leaves me a bit drained. I wake up too early in the morning after staying awake too late, and I am exhausted way more quickly than I should be.

The good news? I’m about to get off work and it’s sunny and warm outside. Spring is in the air and there is a noticeable change in the energy.

The result?

  • I want to go outside and run. I want to walk my dog. I want to go hiking and climb a tree. I want to do anything that allows me to appreciate this beautiful day.
  • My day flew by. My morning was a blink and my afternoon was a breeze. A bit of fatigue is nothing compared to the energy from a excited day.
  • I’m hopeful. Spring and Summer are the most positive parts of my year. The adventure of life seems a lot more possible when these seasons awaken.

The bad news?

I’m distracted! It’s finally feeling like spring, and after this hellacious winter, I’m sure I’m not the only one who is jumping out of my skin to feel the sun on my face.

Studies show that the most productive days are the ones with bad weather, and because of my distracted, fatigued nature I can tell that my productivity has been less than ideal.

The upside?

Exercise increases motivation and productivity. Therefore, after the lovely evening that I’m about to experience outside, my day tomorrow is sure to be a success.
