Down here in Australia, with the arrival of March, we’ve shifted from summer to autumn and although for some that may mean less beach time, it certainly doesn’t mean less stinger suit time.
Seasonal change happens 4 times throughout the year and is marked by changes in the weather, hours of daylight and in the way organisms relate to one another and their surroundings.
Here we are losing daylight hours and those 40+ days have gone (thankfully!) leaving us with cooler, more hospitable temperatures. However that relentlessly damaging UV is still a factor that must be dealt with.
Climate change now means It has become a year-round proposition protecting one’s skin.
For those of you living in the northern hemisphere the “ice-cream headache” bone numbing cold of winter is finally retreating and spring has, or will arrive shortly in all its glory.
What a lovely time of year as your favorite bulbs burst into flower, songbirds sing melodically in search of a mate and you meticulously plan your much-anticipated summer vacation.
Aside from the above-mentioned, I believe a new season can also bring with it a change in ideas, a spring clean of old ways if you will, an opportunity to embrace new concepts and plan for the future.
For my mind it doesn’t matter what season you are entering nor what fabulous activities await, it’s time to plan on wearing a UPF 50+ stinger suit to protect your skin, that expensive body art, or help ward off marine stingers. After all, my plan is to look after myself as best as I can. What’s your plan?
