In spring, on the other hand, everything is expansion and growth. Spring gives us energy and we perceive the magic of spring with all our senses. In nature, everything begins to blossom and we also have more energy to make changes and materialize these ideas that we have matured during the winter. It is the time of new beginnings. Here are a couple of tips to get you into spring on the right foot. Wake up your energy just like nature does!
