Beat The Winter Blahs


Winter can seem to drag on and on and the short days and cold weather can leave you feeling uninspired and unmotivated. Here are a few ways to help you combat the winter blahs and refresh your life!

1. Give A Room A Bright New Look
If your house is contributing to your blahs, supercharge a room or two with summery decorative elements. Adding a fresh coat of paint on the walls or adding bunches of fresh flowers, candles or accessories from favorite vacations won’t just warm the room; it’ll warm you too.

2. Get Rid Of The Clutter
Take advantage of all the time spent indoors by organizing closets, cleaning out the fridge, purging old files and tackling any other home projects that you won’t feel like doing once the weather warms and you spend less time in the house.

3. Add Splashes Of Color To Your Wardrobe
Throw on a bright scarf, necklace or sweater to remind you that spring is just around the corner!

4. Get Outside And Play
Bundle up and get outside for some exercise, especially on sunny days. Sunlight is a natural mood-enhancer and exercise stimulates and warms the body. If you’re looking for a way to combine exercise with giving back, consider volunteering at a local animal shelter! There are always dogs in need of a walk or just an outdoor break, and there’s nothing like a happy, squirming pup to lift your spirits.

5. Visit A Spa, Or Set One Up At Home
The bitter cold doesn’t just make people blue; it also wreaks havoc on their skin. Combat both with a pampering trip to a day spa, or set one up at home.
