Spring is the season of new beginnings. In spring, the weather starts to get warmer. The leaves begin to grow on the trees and some trees may blossom. Plants begin to grow again when the sun shines warmly and rain falls. They poke their leaves out of the ground and you may see baby animals like lambs around. The daytimes start to get longer. Fresh buds bloom, animals awaken and the earth seems to come to life again. Birds come back from their winter homes and make nests; the arrival of spring brings more daylight, so we can enjoy the energy that is no longer needed to fight off drowsiness. Spring means Palash flower and the festival of colour. A festival that waves goodbye to the shivery chill of winter, Holi is one of the most popular festivals in India.
This is a period of transition, from the darker winter days to the bright spring vibes. As nature begins to come to life, so do we. It is a period of transformation for us also, and it’s not uncommon for people to shift careers, start new creative projects, end relationships or begin new friendships, during this time. To support this energy, it is a great idea to follow in nature’s footsteps and get a makeover also. It’s all about a fresh new approach to everything.
