Tips to Avoid the Winter Blues

Julia DeBald

1. Have something to look forward to!

Mark your calendar for the first day of Spring and plan a treat for yourself.

2. Make time for exercise!

Staying active is proven to boost your mood by releasing endorphins, which make you happy.

3. Try and get sunlight every day!

Even if this means just sitting in a sunny window, warming up your skin will make you feel less dreary.

4. Connect with friends!

Make time to call or spend time with those you care about. 

5. Wear bright colors!

Anticipating warmer weather through your choice of clothes will surely bring you joy.

6. Find an indoor hobby! 

Making the most out of your time will allow you to feel productive while doing something you enjoy.

7. Nurture an indoor plant!

Bringing nature inside and caring for a living thing will give you a sense of fulfillment.

8. Make nutrition a priority!

Eating healthy foods and drinking lots of water will make you feel good while giving you more energy.
