Shaking The Blues

Although we had a beautiful sunny day yesterday in Winnipeg, today is back to our usual gloomy weather. It is getting so hard to stay positive, but here are some tips I find helpful to overcome the blues.

Go for a walk: I know this sounds like the last thing we feel like doing when the weather is cold, but sometimes fresh air is what we're lacking and all you need is a natural pick me up.

Call a friend: Sometimes just the sound of a friends voice is enough to make me feel better. So don't text, call and truly connect.

Take a hot bath: This one especially works for the chilly, grey days. Light some candles, make a cup of herbal tea and relax with your favorite book. Leave your cellphone in the next room and truly relax.

Take a few deep breaths: When you're feeling down, or anxious, stop and take a few deep breaths. You will instantly feel more calm and in touch with yourself. Just close your eyes and focus on your breathing.

Dance: Pretty self explanatory.. tune into your favorite song and dance like no ones watching.

Make your favorite meal: Take the time to collect all the ingredients, be mindful as you chop and create the perfect plate.
