The effects of springtime

When spring comes around and the weather starts getting warmer, people are usually in a better mood. But why is this? There is actually a scientific phenomenon that is responsible for a general improvement in mood. It has to do the fact that in spring the light intensity is much greater. This means that there is more sunlight. The hormones dopamine and serotonin are then released, helping improve peoples' moods.
