How about shopping? Perhaps you don't get out much in the winter, and now that the sun is shining and the temperatures are warming up, you are inspired to buy all sorts of new things! How is your focus at work? Does any of this sound familiar? The burst of energy is certainly not a bad thing! How we direct it really does matter though. It is important to remain mindful, even through these times of seasonal transition.
