Lift Your Spirits: 18 Quick Fixes for the Winter Doldrums
15. Add a few colorful accents to your home. A few new pillows or rugs can lift your spirits.
16. Break yourself out of your routine. Sometimes our feelings of hibernation come in because school and work schedules during the winter don't afford many choices. And then we get stuck and a little burned out. Each day, change one thing in your normal routine. Call an old friend during your lunch hour. Drive a new way home from work. Bring home takeout from a new place.
17. Book a quick, last minute spring getaway for the weekend. Ask your friends for the most enjoyable road trip they have taken recently and follow in their footsteps.
18. Find a Community-Supported-Agriculture (CSA) initiative to participate in this summer. When we started getting involved, we began to really anticipate the arrival of our fresh, organically and locally grown produce each year, and it helped us to pay attention and to appreciate the natural rhythm of the seasons. This is a great time to do your research and anticipate the way those fresh raspberries and tomatoes will taste on your summer table.
How will you beckon the arrival of spring?
