By on April 22nd, 2011 Tags: , ,

The snow is melted and the sun is out (at least in my part of the world). I’m excited to spend more time outside enjoying the garden and visiting my friends. A sunny day gives me much more energy and puts me in a great mood. Over the last few months of winter, many of my patients have been feeling the blues of scarce winter …
