winter! All across the country it's been snow cold! with 49 of the 50 states receiving blankets of the white
stuff. Only the sunshine state, Florida, has been spared. When the work day begins
with a snow shovel in hand, it can be hard to feel motivated.
can't do much about the white stuff, we can offer the right stuff for beating
the winter blahs. Use these tips, at work and home, and see if you can rekindle
your can-do mojo.
Exercise: Reboot your energy and productivity with winter
workouts. Getting the blood pumping is vital for energy as are adequate doses
of vitamin D from the sun. Fitness.com offers cold-weather workout tips
in Warm Up to Winter Workouts including the importance of
careful stretching, sun screen and appropriate layering.
If You Can't Beat 'Em, Join 'Em: Winter will fade into spring
eventually so grab those, skates, sleds and skis and hit the slopes and ice for
some invigorating fun! Hot chocolate and marshmallows to follow will have you
feeling like a kid again.
Take a Trip: Plan a trip to a sunny locale. A Caribbean vacation
would surely do the trick but if a tropical get-away isn't in the financial
cards, consider a day-trip to a spa, indoor water park or even a botanic
garden. A few hours of warm fun can recharge the batteries and remind you that
winter will eventually end.
Think Spring: Take a tip from a gardener and begin thinking about spring
now. Start cultivating your garden indoors with seeds; watching slender seedlings
sprout is a cheerful reminder that spring is around the corner.
