With the cooler temperatures and shorter days, winter can be a tough season to go through. Here are a couple of tips that will help you make winter your happiest season ever!

BE ACTIVE

This should be practiced throughout the year, but it gets even more significant during those short, dark days of winter. Being active has been proven to not only make your happier, but healthier too! Whether it’s just taking the stairs or going all out and joining a gym, staying active will make those winter months more energetic than ever!

CHASE THE SUN

We crave natural sunlight. Obviously in the fall, that’s a challenge. Even though the days are shorter and colder, there are a lot of activities you can do outside during the fall. Go for a hike, a walk, rake leaves, the sky’s the limit. And remember, there’s no such thing as bad weather – just bad gear! Be prepared if you plan on going out and make sure you use those blinds from End Of The Roll to let Mr. Sunshine in!

EAT WELL

Because it is getting cold, we tend to find comfort in food. Try to trade your big pumpkin-spiced latte with a healthy smoothie. When planning a meal, remember to dedicate half of your plate to veggies and leave the rest for proteins and carbs. Also leave lots of room for Omega-3’s in your diet, which are proven to help fight off depression symptoms.

GET ARTSY

If you’re spending a day at home, instead of sitting in front of the TV, use your time to get creative! Whether it’s painting or creating jewelry, trying something new is great for the soul!  Who knows, maybe you’ll discover a new passion or hidden talent! Christmas is just around the corner, so it’s the perfect time to get a little crafty anyway!

TAKE SOME TIME

Make time for yourself. Whether you choose to just lay low, take a yoga class, or meditate at home, it’s always good to reconnect with ourselves and let that good energy in. You can also treat yourself at the spa!
