Shaking the Mid-Winter Blues

Yearning for longer days full of sunshine, warm temperatures?  Eagerly awaiting to see the first signs of Forsythia blooms?  Some believe the yellow pops of Forsythia bushes is nature’s way of telling us Spring is here.  Ready to shake the mid-winter blues?  Spring is around the corner and the tips below can help you prepare to welcome it with open arms!

Tips to beat the Mid-Winter Blues:

Get moving

Move your muscles and release endorphins.  Endorphins boost your mood, decrease stress.

Turn up the Tunes

Revamp your playlist, dance around the room, sing like you are a superstar.  Music can shift your mindset. Choose your genre, crank up the volume.

Nurture your Spirit

Practice gratitude, read a book, tap into your creative senses, make time to do something you love.  Soothe your soul, mind your mind.

Connect with Others

Call someone you love, send a “Good morning,” text, arrange a date.  Cultivate new relationships, strengthen those you already have. 

Extend yourself

Serve your community, comfort those in need, provide relief, offer support.  Consider ways to volunteer and give back to your community.  

 

St. Patrick’s Day is around the corner!  As LUCK would have it, we have two Virtual Information Sessions scheduled for March.
