Winter Blues


I don’t know about you but I am ready for spring. The dark mornings and evenings, and the cold chilly gray weather has gotten to me.  It’s been so cold and windy this past weekend that I wasn’t able to shoot outdoors. This makes me feel less-energized and somewhat depressed. However, whenever I feel down I make sure to get out of the funk. In today’s post, I am sharing how I personally beat the winter blues. Continue reading to learn more.

Get moving

Whenever I feel tired and drained I make sure that I get a least 20min on my treadmill to boost my energy. I sometimes walk and when I feel like being extra sporty I run for at least 30min. This gives me such a boost (hello, endorphins!)—making it easier to tackle another busy day.

Sleep, sleep

While I must admit that it has gotten harder for me to get enough sleep (I often work at night when both boys are asleep—like tonight!), I do make sure that I get 8hrs of sleep at least 4 times a week.

Meditate each morning

I made a habit to take 10min for myself in the morning to just mediate and read the bible. It gets me in the right spirit.

Get together with friends

Laughing together with your friends is the best medicine to combat winter blues! How about you?! How do you fight winter blues? Leave a comment below. As always, thanks much for reading & have a great Monday!

    Thanks for sharing your tips on fighting winter blues.

    Definitely making some time for yourself in the morning is key. I always like to spend some time working out once I wake up.

    This post is very inspiring, for me getting moving is so important. I love late night walks and taking in the fresh air, enjoying yourself is so important and making the most of life.

    You look beautiful 🙂
