The January Blahs.
I'm unmotivated. I'm tired and I just don't want to do anything.
I'm usually a pretty upbeat and driven person but once in a while...especially since moving to Utah where there is cold and snow outside my door for days on end....I feel unspunky.
I have decided to compile a list of things to help beat the Winter doldrums.
Number 1 Open all the curtains! We need more sun in the house! At least seeing the sun will help improve my mood.
Number 2 Listen to some upbeat music! This morning...I chose the music from Mamma Mia. Perked me right up. And the kids danced and it wore them out a little bit so that they took a nice nap.
Number 3 Make a summery cocktail! Nothing makes me long for summer like a salt rimmed Margarita or a Corona with a lime. If you don't drink alcohol....make some Lemonade!
Number 4 Crank up the heat and put on some shorts or a swim suit! I didn't actually do this....but it is an interesting idea.
Number 5 While you have your swimsuit on....slather on some self-tanning lotion. If you know of good one please share!
Number 6 Exercise! Do some jumping jacks or dance with the kids.
Number 7 Eat some fruit and salad! That always reminds me of summer.
Number 8 Watch the movie Cocktail! Or any other summer, beach movie.
Number 9 Get together with some friends for a party or night out.
Number 10 Go on vacation to a warm location! I'm thinking Mexico or Hawaii!
What do you do when you are the Winter Blues?
