March 4th is the only date with its own positive message: “march forth.” And much like March 4th’s saying, daylight savings has a saying that comes along with it: “spring forward.” Now, even though both of these phrases are plays on words, it’s always important to keep marching forth and springing forward.

Winter is long. You’re probably sick of the cold and sick of sitting around. January took forever, and February wasn’t any shorter. You’re probably dreaming of the warmer days of Spring and sunshine. As the cold months have been passing by, you might’ve noticed yourself becoming more and more lax on your diets and eating habits. You might be waiting for spring to start to really get a jump on things. Spring is too late. Just as the saying goes, there is no time like the present. You don’t want to be sitting around, waiting to start a new habit when spring arrives. You want to march forth and be boosted by spring. Don’t sit around, march forth and get started on your good habits now, so when spring arrives, you’ll only have room to improve.

Daylight savings sucks. We lose an hour of sleep and for what? Idk either. Well, the good thing about daylight savings is that it means spring is coming up. Time to spring forward! While you shouldn’t wait to start your new diet or new meal plans until Spring, Spring is a great time to boost your plan! Warmer weather gives you more time to get outside and free your mind or exercise. New restaurants may start opening, so maybe you can spice up your palette! Whatever it may be, use spring to your advantage. If good weather doesn’t boost your mood, I don’t know what will.

So even though the sayings might sound dumb, they hold meaning! March forth into the new season with a plan in mind, and spring forward with a positive and open mind!

Shine Bright!
