Me too! So, when the sunshine came out yesterday afternoon, I opened my blinds at work and let it warm my back. When I got home at 5, it was still shining; and I had to stand in the driveway for several minutes just to drink it in.
We all know that sunshine is necessary for optimum health. But in the midst of snowstorms (3 in the past 2 weeks) and rainy days (4 in the last 2 weeks), even those few hours of indirect sunshine had a magical affect on me. I could feel the stress sliding off; I could feel endorphins and serotonin being produced; I could feel my hormones balancing themselves and all the stars and planets beginning to align.
- It made me want to take a 30 min walk --- but it was freezing and I was hungry.
- It made me want to eat spa foods -- so the girls and I made a huge salad with my favorite blend of lettuces (or is more than one lettuce "lettuci"??) and ate broccoli quiche with iced Jasmine green tea. Yum yum!
- It made me want to stand on my back deck and shout "Thank You, God, for this tangible sign of life and hope!" -- but I said it silently.
