Note from Tarra


Let's cultivate our health together this Spring! Winter stagnation is hard on even the happiest person—it can make you unproductive, irritable, and even depressed. A never-fail springtime wellness tip is to recharge your psychological batteries in the great outdoors. Science shows that when you venture out into nature regularly, you can enjoy:

  • Improved attention span
  • Boost in serotonin (the feel-good neurotransmitter)
  • Increased brain activity

As the sunrise gets earlier, getting out of bed early and going outside can help boost your level of vitamin D, most of which we get from sunlight on our skin. Vitamin D contributes to keeping bones and teeth healthy, and a lack of it can lead to an increased risk of bone problems and fractures in older adults. Studies have shown that people who wake up earlier are healthier than those night owls who snooze the mornings away, and will also help get a leg up on symptoms of depression.
