Spring fever sizzles in March

Not that we’re complaining, but the National Weather Service says metro Detroit is about to break the record for consecutive 60-degree temps in March.  Officials are predicting that these temperature patterns should continue for the next few weeks. Most of us couldn’t be more pleased to welcome the sun back into our daily routine.  But with that comes the danger of letting spring fever take completely over our lives.  If you are getting in the habit of enjoying the sun and springtime but your homework and responsibilities are falling short, Newsprint has some helpful hints to find your balance.

Make The Outdoors Your Work Space:  If you want to soak up some of that sun but STILL need to get homework done, grab a towel or lawn chair and kill two birds with one stone.  Enjoy the warmth while still tackling Trigonometry assignments.  Just don’t forget the sun screen!

Get Physical: Are you someone who makes physical activity a part of their daily routine?  Well say goodbye to that stuffy gym and hello to some real oxygen.  These wonderful temps of 65 and sunny have made people move outside for their exercise, and you can too!

It’s All About the Balance: Using time management skills can really help you to have your cake and eat it, too.  If you are desperately craving some of that spring time sensation, get all your work and chores done as soon as you can, and spend the rest of your day enjoying the weather.
