Winter…sometimes it feels like it will never end. It will never be sunny again. I’ll never be warm again. So, what can be done to survive the cold, gray, rainy days?
Make the most of the sun when it’s out, even if it’s cold!
A few other tips:
-Make little things special…it’s snowing again, pop some champagne! Rain…bundle up, put on the rain boots and go jump in some puddles.
-Schedule regular “me” time. 20 min with a book, 30 min workout, long shower that uses all the hot water. Find something to look forward to each day.
-Put on your favorite tunes in the car and sing at the top of your lungs, pretend the windows are down and the sun is blazing.
-When the sun is out cancel your indoor activities/to do list/whatever and get outside! Go for a walk, hit the park. An hour of sun can get me through days and days of rain and gray!
-Freezing temps…pull out your favorite scarf and gloves (or go get special new ones) and enjoy being bundled up.
-Book your summer vacation/weekends trips. Doesn’t hurt to look forward to sunny warm times. Also, it doesn’t hurt to look back either…pull out the vaca pics from last summer!
-When it’s too cold, rainy, wet to be outside don’t feel bad about getting cozy on the couch and binge watching your favorite show!
-Make time to hang out with friends for no reason. It may not be BBQ season, but game nights and wine tasting can still happen!
Mostly remember we can’t have Spring without first having Winter, and we can’t have Summer without Spring. Each season is only a few months, and will pass.
P.S. I know…it’s been forever since my last post…life…it’s busy. What can I say. I have lot’s to share though and am working on being more regular!
