3 Tips to fight the winter blues

 

Feeling a little blaaaaaaaah

I feel you and I understand, winter is not my cup of tea either, its way too cold, not enough sun light, way tooooooo cold and just blah. (Yes I know I said way too cold twice)

However there are many things we can do to make sure we keep our energy and spirits high.

I tell my students and clients that the only way your going to feel good is if you make yourself feel good.

Which means we have to take time out of our day and plan to make sure our energy is high and we are feeling good. If you don’t take the time to do it, it’s not going to get done, so it’s important to put your happiness in your hands.

Here are 3 tips to get rid of the Winter Blues

Workout I know you know this, but its funny because though many of us know that working out helps us stay energized, not many follow through. We think awww its cold out, I’m staying home. And that is not a good idea. This is even more reason to workout, you want to stay fit all year round, you want to keep your energy up, and one of the best ways to do this is to stick to a weekly workout plan. This will help you feel energized, feel motivated which helps your overall mind-body and soul.

Stay away from Negative people. We can sniff them out from a far, and when they come around, the entire energy changes. Don’t allow the moods of others to suck you try. Especially during these winter months. If there is someone you know who is like this, then make the change you need to distance yourself or make sure your energy doesn’t get slapped when they come around.

Take time out to laugh with your friends and family. Just laugh, watch a funny movie or a funny youtube video and laugh. I love youtube because I can search for anything and yes sometimes these videos are ridiculous, but the point is, the video makes me laugh, and we all know laughing is good for the soul. Don’t neglect the comfort and joy that the people closest to you bring. Include them into your plan, get together for social gatherings so you can enjoy their company and they can enjoy yours.

These are 3 simple tips, there are many more. Find what works for you.

Know that you can only keep your energy and spirit high if you take the time to do so.
