After what seems like forever, the clocks finally change this weekend, meaning it's the start of British Summer Time.
The nights have already been getting lighter and once the clocks spring forward an hour (at 1am on Sunday, March 26, to be exact), we can all look forward to much more daylight.
Not only is it much nicer coming out of work to bright light, it just makes you feel like you have much more time to do everything.
Here are a few things to get excited about now spring is in the air:
Going to a beer garden after work
You know summer is on the way when you can have a drink outdoors and not feel freezing.
As soon as there鈥檚 a hint of warmth in the air, the city鈥檚 beer gardens fill up fast, especially after clocking off time.
Take a look at our best beer gardens guide, to get some inspiration for the light nights ahead.
Taking up an outdoor hobby
The weekends come and go so quickly, so don鈥檛 leave all your fun for Saturday and Sunday.
Over the spring and summer the days feel so much longer, so make the most of them by trying something new like horse riding at Croxteth Park, a round of golf at one of Merseyside鈥檚 many courses, or stand up paddle boarding at Liverpool Watersports Centre.
Getting fit in the great outdoors
If that New Year鈥檚 resolution you made to lose weight was abandoned back January, this is the perfect time to reset your fitness goals.
You could join a running club, sign up for one of the bootcamps held in the city鈥檚 parks, head out with some friends for a power walk, or start playing five-a-side.
Doing something touristy you鈥檝e never done before
Merseyside is full of brilliant attractions, but sometimes it鈥檚 easy to overlook what鈥檚 on your doorstep.
There are probably some things that even the proudest scouser hasn鈥檛 done, so make a list of outdoor sights you want to see over the summer and start ticking them off.
Walking or cycling home from work
If you don鈥檛 live too far from work, you could try this once or twice a week. It will help you unwind after work and you might discover some new places and sights you never notice when whizzing past in the car, or on public transport.
If walking home from work isn鈥檛 ideal, you could call into one of the cities lovely parks on the way back, or after tea, and get a quick nature fix. Take in the sights and sounds, breath in the fresh air and feel yourself relax.
