“Spring Adds New Life & New Beauty to All That Is”

Spring truly signifies change, does it not? Growth and color are natural occurrences this time each year. It is not unique to seasons, either. Our lives modify and adapt with new circumstances, requirements, opportunities, and issues. Recognizing that change occurs for everyone and everything is an important step toward embracing these differences as they occur. This means that we can have less stress and anxiety as we adapt to change and realize what we do and do not have control over. This can be helpful for all of us!

Some other thoughts on spring from Psychology Today:

“The healing potential of spring is undeniable, from effecting the remission of Seasonal Affective Disorder to the increased production of Vitamin D. Once ignored, Vitamin D has become a staple of annual physical exams and a critical part of the healing regimen for cancer survivors. Vitamin D is involved in promoting bone health, proper cell differentiation, and boosting immunity.
Like spring, hope is a potent ally in sustaining health and recovering from illness. This is because hope is made collectively from the same bio-psycho-social stuff that investigators have separately associated with well-being (perceived control, social support, self-regulation, and spirituality). A survey of oncologists revealed that more than 90 percent cited hope as the primary psychological factor that impacts mortality.”
Thank you for being a part of NAMI Beaver County and our unending mission for a world where all people affected by mental illness live healthy, fulling lives through a supporting and caring community.
