The days may feel shorter, but they’re filled with all kinds of festive activities - wrapping presents, whipping up delectable desserts, and adorning the house with decor that only comes out once a year.

Beating the Winter Blues

When the weather gets cold and the sun goes to bed a little earlier than normal, we often need a little help in the “mood” department. Do we not? It’s easy to let the gloom set in and fall prey to apathy. When you feel yourself headed in this direction, use some of these tips to lift those spirits and get your heart and mind in the right place. 

  • Expose yourself to some natural light! Go for a walk, sit by a window - just get in some of those glorious, energizing rays.
  • Inhale happy scents! Aromatherapy is a great way to uplift the spirits and connect directly to the emotional control center in the brain. Citrus oils like Lemon, Grapefruit, Lime, Orange, or Bergamot are perfect for diffusing during this time of year. 
  • Tidy things up a bit. It may sound silly but doing things like making your bed, decluttering the counter, or folding a load of clothes can help you clear the chaos in your mind and give you a sense of control and order. 
  • Distract your brain. When you can’t seem to get out of your own head - shift your focus. Turn on some happy tunes or find a comedic video to watch. Music and laughter are proven stress relievers. Try it! 
  • Practice self-care. Do something that brings you joy - get your hair and nails done, read a romantic novel, take a relaxing bath, snuggle up to your favorite show, etc. Put yourself first for a change.
  • Exercise and eat right. You’ll be surprised at what a little movement can do for your mood! And make sure you're giving your body the fuel it needs with nutritious fruits and vegetables - not empty carbs and sugar.

Have a wonderful month friends!  If your season feels a little slower this year, be thankful!  Mine is different this year as we won't be dragging out ALL of the decorations for a variety of reasons. One being that we chose to make the season just a bit less crazy, allowing us to concentrate more on it's true meaning of joy and gratitude for the gift of our savior from the God who loves us!  It's different, and at times I want to just go back to the "overdrive", but then I take a look around at the beauty of things, like everyone else's decorations, and I give thanks that we have chosen a more restful, contemplative year.  We both needed this as we get our energy back from Covid, and also the stress of these last two years. So farm so good!  To hear a bit more on how I prepared and endured Covid, utilizing our exceptions products, please go HERE.
