ESL Student Blog: Spring Fever - Do I Need to See a Doctor?

Fever, elevated body temperature, is a symptom of many diseases (e.g.: the flu).

Fever can also mean great excitement. Spring fever is a feeling of excitement associated with the beginning of spring. With longer days and sunshine our energy levels increase and we feel more active and upbeat. (Some people on the other hand feel lazy and lack energy. How does spring affect you?).

Look at the questions below. If you answer ‘yes’ to most of these questions, you’ve definitely got spring fever!

In spring:

  • Are you more distracted in class? Do you wish you spent your day in the park rather than in class?
  • Do you daydream?
  • Are you in a better mood?
  • Does the world look a better place?
  • Do you smile more?
  • Do you think you look better?
  • Do you feel an uncontrollable urge to be outside (you don’t even mind pulling the weeds)?

Does spring make you feel a ‘happy individual’ as in this song by Frank Sinatra? Is there anyone who makes you feel younger?

Do you find yourself humming “Here Comes the Sun” by Beatles while you feverishly clean your house?

Listen to "Spring Fever" sung by Elvis Presley and you might get the bug too.

Spring fever can be highly contagious, but there’s no need to see a doctor!

See you in the park?
