5 Simple Steps to Enjoy the Winter Season!
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! Don’t let winter weather get you down. The weather outside might be frightful but here are five things that can help you feel so delightful.
- Relax and enjoy the snowfall from inside where its warm with the added benefit of aromatherapy. Scents and smells can aid in the ability to reduce anxiety, ease depression and boost energy levels, all of which the colder, darker winter months often can increase for people. A little sweet scent can boost your energy and outlook on a snow-covered world until its summer once again. Grab a diffuser to set your winter season off on the right note!
2. Don’t let the winter months bring you down. That sheltered feeling winter brings many in the colder climates can set many into a downward spiral of negativity and depression. Music is a great way to instantly change one’s mood. Accessible, relaxing music playing in the background can take a frown and turn it upside-down in a few quick songs. Listening to music can reduce stress, redirect our attention, calm our busy mind, and choosing tunes that are relaxing and calming can turn a stressful workspace into a happy place. Here’s one of my favorite CD’s to help you set the mood.
3. Sip away stress with tea. Drinking tea does one of my favorite things-warms you from the inside out. That feeling of the first warm sip as it runs down your throat is both calming and soothing. During the winter months I, like many, struggle with drinking enough water, due to the fact it’s so cold outside. But during the winter months, the air is dryer which is a call for us to drink even more water. Tea is a great way to get your water count in and at the same time balance your mood, as many teas have added benefits depending on what you choose to drink. Here is some of my favorite tea.
4. Shine a little light down on yourself this winter with a light and ion therapy lamp. Those shorter days and gloomy afternoons do wear a person down. A few years ago I decided to do a better job warding off the winter blues (also known as SAD). A little light goes a long way. Boost your mood with light therapy.
The weather outside might be frightful, but inside you can make it your own delightful winter retreat-everyday!
A little investment in yourself this season can make a big difference in how you see the world over the next several months.
