Staying Happy and Healthy During Spring Fever Onset

Spring fever is a term used to describe mental and physical changes that are brought on by the closing of winter and the onset of spring. Ed Lacheta, Director of Mental Health for Shelby County Community Services says, spring fever is an adaptive mechanism in a person's body to the change in temperatures.

Those in the community who may be feeling unexplained fatigue throughout the day are not alone says Lacheta.


Contributing factors for spring fever are unclear says Lacheta. He gives a list of possible causes that could describe the existence of spring fever.


Lacheta provides tips for citizens to make for a smooth winter-to-spring transition.
