We all get a little impatient waiting for warmer weather (even though spring just happened).

And, the whole being-stuck-in-the-office-all-day only makes things tougher, especially if your chair faces a stark-white wall instead of a window looking out onto the perfectly blue sky.

Luckily, I know just the trick: Bring the sunshine to you!
