Yes. January is here and winter has officially arrived. As beautiful as the snow is and the sound of pouring rain, winter also certainly has its "ugly side : The winter blues. We all at a certain point in winter feel like we do not want to leave the house, lack of motivation and energy and we just feel like we want to sit on the couch and basically just soak up the warmth of the house without having to do anything else but watch TV and eat comfort food.
In this post we will try to help you find ways to combat those winter blues and get the positivity and energy to surround you during these cold months.
1 - Exercise. Even if it was in the comfort of your own home. You don't need to leave the house to go to the gym or anything, you could just do your daily exercise right from your living room or bedroom by following some moves from YouTube channels such as Blogilates.
2 - Tell a friend to help you with combating the winter blues by forcing you to get out of the house even if it was for just an hour at the coffee shop, or maybe 30 minutes at the gym. Its good to get out and have some fresh air.
3 - Surround yourself with bright colors. Wear bright clothes, or maybe a bright lipstick. Put a bright blanket on your bed just to make you look at something the will wake the summer in your brain!
4 - Listen to happy music. Whether its pop, country or jazz, listen to it and feel the energy and avoid listening to dark or sad music.
5 - Set a reading area in your living room in front of the snow view, get a faux fur small rug and set some books on side and start reading a comedy book with a warm sweet hot drink.
6 - Start a DIY project that you can do at home. Keep your creative juices flowing and make two projects every month. Project suggestions include learning how to make scented candles, photo collages of your summer vacation and knitting a scarf.
7 - Change up your look! Give your salon a visit or maybe if your good at doing things on your own; you can do your own hair. Change up your hair color for the winter season, or maybe give your hair a haircut or a trim. Whatever you do, you will certainly feel uplifted!
We hope you found those tips helpful and always remember, try to always look at the great things in your life and always be thankful to all the blessings God has given you.
Stay Cozily Happy :)
