When it comes to winter, a lot of us think “cold”, “dark”, “miserable”, “boring”, “long”…generally summed up by the word “blah”. What if I told you that just by changing up a few things in your daily or weekly routine, if not all these adjectives but definitely some, can be changed for happier and brighter ones?
I will admit that occasionally I suffer from seasonal depression, also known as winter blues. When the days are grey with very little sunshine, my mood just plummets to the bottom of the charts. I can’t help it, it just sucks me right into the thick of this weird anti-productivity hibernation. And that, inadvertently, affects the rest of my family. If I feel “blah”, the kids pick up on that and model their attitudes based on mine. I want to break free from this “blah” feeling and not let it determine my mood this winter season.
These are just a few ideas on how to combat those pesky moody winter days and have a bit more “sunshine” in your life instead!
