Along with open-toed shoes, sneezing fits and the ice cream truck man, spring is officially back, baby!

As many of us do these days, I spend a good chunk of my time in front of my computer, and my work day usually prevents me from experiencing beautiuful spring weather at the most ideal times of the afternoon. Have no fear, though… I’ve got a solution for those of you who are in the same boat.

Whether you’re in school and stuck inside writing a paper or you’ve ventured out into the big, bad working world, you shouldn’t have to be trapped indoors on days when the birds are chirping and the sky is crystal clear. To battle your indoor blues, here are 3 tips and tricks that might help you add some freshness to your day:

1) Head on over to PageCraze for a bright new browser skin that screams ‘springtime’! If you have to be on the Internet, why not surf with some pretty petals on your screen? (Trust me…it’ll help you forget that you’re inside.) Check out this pretty Cherry Blossom skin:

2) While you’re visiting PageCraze, be sure to grab a springy layout for your Facebook page. I’m in LOVE with this one. It reminds me of Sunday mornings in April.

3) Last, but not least, show off your seasonal style with a bright, bold Facebook cover from CoverFanatic. Here are two of my favorites for this time of year:

Well, my duties are done here. Hopefully this helps you all to add some pep in your step (and some color to your monitor) to help get more excited about spring. I’m off to catch the ice cream truck…
