5 Ways to Kick the Winter Blues

Friday, February 27, 2015

If you're over the cold, snow & winter, raise your hand. My guess is that more than half of the country has their hand raised. We are entering into the dreaded part of the year where we just want winter to be over. Spring cannot come soon enough.

As we await the awakening of spring and continue to curse the season that is winter, there are just 5 simple things I think you can do to kick the winter blues.

// Check up on Your Resolutions

Remember those goals and resolutions you made just a few months ago? How are they going? More than likely there is something on there that you could be doing better on. If it's eating healthy, cooking will keep you occupied. If it's being more intentional with your time, spend a day out with friends and family.

// Get moving

This could be anything from running on the treadmill, taking a Zumba class or enjoying a winter activity like skiing. If you are in a place and able to run outside right now ebcause you aren;t in sub zero temperatures, go for that. Although, I no longer want to see any of your warm pictures and being all I'm outside in the sunshine all warm nonsense.

// Get Started on Your Spring Cleaning

If you have to be inside, might as well be productive while you're at it. Clean out those closets and declutter. Start making room for your new spring wardrobe. Scour Pinterest on the best cleaning tips for your bathroom. Get all of this done before the weather gets warm so you can go out and play!

// Bring Color into Your Home

It might not be spring outside, but you can make the inside of your home just a little bit warmer with the looks of spring. Start to add some color inside your home. The bright colors will instantly put you in a better mood. Grab some flowers from your local farmer's market or grocery store. Just seeing them bloom on your kitchen table or i your living room will remind you spring is coming.

// Dance it out

There isn't very much that a good dance party can't cure. Feel free to grab that hair brush and really get into it. Nothing relaxes me more than a good time dancing like I am one of Pitbull's back up dancers. Have you seen my Instagram dance party yet?

I am convinced that we if we all do these and kick the winter blues goodbye, mother nature will reward us with spring in the very future. What do you think?
