How are you energy levels?
It’s Officially Spring!Been feeling tired lately? Are your energy levels low?I can almost hear you saying…”Yes Rose – but what has this got to do with Spring?”..well more than you realise.
The Energy of Spring
Today (20th March 2022) is the spring equinox. It’s the day our earth is exactly halfway between winter and summer.
Have you ever considered how much energy it takes the trees, shrubs, plants and flowers to push their way through the cold hard soil of winter? It takes an incredible amount of energy to bring spring into being.
Spring has arrived in her Sunday best. Everywhere there are beautiful yellow and orange spring flowers and flowering trees line avenues and roads.
Yesterday whilst driving I saw a lone Cherry Plum standing proudly in a row of skeleton looking trees. It looked as if it had a large cotton-wool ball of a mass of white flowers stuck on its trunk! And within the next week, the new buds on the tress will begin to unfold their yellowy-green leaves.
Spring is bursting forth everywhere. (At least, it is in the northern hemisphere).
However this need for more energy in Spring is not just revelant to shrubs and flowers!Have you ever thought that WE also need a lot of energy to bring us from the cold, dark days of winter into the light of spring? Especially as the weather is not yet stable and we’re still having grey damp days.
If you are not ‘filled with the joys of spring’, there are some excellent Bach Flowers to help you find a sense of aliveness and fun. But you may have found that its not always easy to choose a remedy that helps you. So have a look at the free Bach Flower Guides. You’ll love them – everyone does!

Remedy Suggestions to help you have more energy for Spring
However, I’m sure you’d like some Bach Flower suggestions to help with low energy levels now. Here’s quick tip: – always look at why your feeling as you are. I’ll show you want I mean in my remedy suggestions.
This is the first and obvious remedy to give you more energy is Olive. The fatigue of Olive comes from having a prolonged illness, such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or Covid.
Covid and Long Covid affect poor energy levels. The ‘Why’ to needing Olive is that you’ve been through or are living with a prolonged, debilitating illness.Click here for more information on Olive..
Hornbeam is for when we feel as if we don’t have the strength to get through the day.
We’ve become bored with our work and find it tedious. Our work no longer brings us joy. 2 drops of Hornbeam into glass of water and sipped frequently, will return your motivation and give you the energy to do all that needs to be done.
This remedy is similar to Hornbeam with the feeling of ‘ can’t be bothered’, but there is a different cause. In a Wild Rose state, you’ve become “defeated by time and endeavour”. This means you’ve been working so hard for so long and have got nowhere. So you feel resigned and apathetic about the situation because you think there’s nothing you can do to change your life – so you don’t do anything.Click here for more about Wild Rose.
Other Remedy suggestions for Spring:
Wild Oat. This can help you find purpose and give meaning to your life. If your life has no meaning you’ll be weary and lethargic.
Gorse. This is the remedy for hopelessness. If you’ve lost all hope, then you’re not going to have the energy to do anything.
Some Suggestions for Depression remedies
If you need of any of the remedies I’ve mentioned, you’ll have no energy to take you into Spring, which means your defences against illness will be low and you may feel even feel depressed.
If you feel depressed as well as low energy then you may need one of the 8 remedies in Bach’s Group for Despair and Despondence. All these remedies similar depressed feelings, but all with different causes.The Bach Guides will help you chose the remedy that ywill do you the most good.
