Making positive moves to fight the Winter blues.

Just into the New Year most of us feel a little on the low side. This is probably down to a number of things like, adverse weather, monetary problems, virus's and short days with very little sun light. Most of us start off with good intentions in January, but all to often our resolutions fall by the way side within a week or two of making them.
So What can we do to have a more positive outlook.  You'd be surprised actually. It's the small things that can really make a difference. One of the most important things is to have some kind of routine. These may vary widely, because some people work full time, whilst others may have health problems to contend with.

Here are a few things that can brighten up your day, whatever your daily routine involves.

  • Keep in touch with your friends, networking is good, but a phone call is even better.
  • Wear colours which you feel good in and for ladies wear some nice make-up.
  • Read...reading is good for you, especially for writers. You can learn an awful lot about writing through reading other authors work.
  • Eat little and often if it's at all possible. If you work full time make sure you stop for a break, you are entitled by law to have at least one 20 minute break. This varies from employer to employer and the amount of hours you work.
  • Make sure you drink plenty of fluids throughout the day. Dehydration over a prolonged period can cause health problems, and has been linked to lethargy and depression.
  • Watch a comedy programme. There is no better medicine than a good laugh.
  • Keep you own blog. It's a good way of expressing yourself.
  • Take a multivitamin, especially if you eat and run. At lot of people live at a very fast pace now.
  • Have a long warm soak in the bath, whilst listening to your favourite music.
  • Try listening to new bands and music. Old favourites are good, but there's a lot of new talent out there too.
Everyday of life is a gift, don't waste it being unhappy.

  1. Drink plenty of fluids is excellent advice, all year round really. People often forget how much we need, and it does have a serious effect on us, even mild dehydration.
