Winter Blues

I wanted to share my list of winter blues help.
...because I refuse to let those blues get me
this year.

Turn a lamp on first thing in the morning-

Put batteries in a clock that actaully ticks-

Cook something you don't normally-
turn a tv show on while doing this
I personally don't watch alot of tv
but while I am cooking I will turn tv on
Good Morning America, Regis and Kelly, The View and Martha, now
Ellen....here in my neck of the woods.

I am more of a music girl...
other months I listen to music...
so if you usually watch tv try music instead.

Eat a banana-

Drink organge juice-
I get a pack of little chartens that have straws...
they are fun and you don't waste...

Stretching....mainly done while I dress for the day.
I dress for the day each day regardless...
this makes me fell like me.
Stretch several time like above your head...
or any movement in general....

Wear bright colors-

Wear perfume or body spray...
I started this last year right at the end of
my blues and found it helps alot....

Rearrange decorative items in the house...
like pillows, lamps, candles, picture
frames...something FUN

Start a chalk board...
write something on it for your family...
my family loves this...
it lets them know I did think about them
while they were gone and before
I know it in some small way they let me know
they thought of me also.

It really stinks that no matter what road we are on in life
the blues can get us....

Do you suffer from winter blues?

  1. Thank you for your comment on my blog. I agree about the getting dressed and perfume everyday. I feel more down on days that I wear sweats and don't shower until nap time for the little one.

    The weather around here has been better lately so Abby and I have been taking afternoon walks and meeting with other moms more. So that all helps.
