How to Stay Positive During Cold Months

As winter draws nearer and the days shorten, sometimes it’s hard to stay motivated. Personally, every year around this time I begin to feel a bit blah, and I just wanted to share a few things that help me get out of that rut.

Peace, Love, Exercise - I cannot stress this enough. Whether it’s going to the gym or just going on a shopping spree, any type of activity is a must during this season. I know you just want to curl up and watch Netflix, but I promise you that keeping active will not only improve your body, but also your mindset.

Embrace the Season to be Freezing - Yeah, I get it, snow can be a pain. But instead of spending your time complaining, get out there and make the most of the season. Sledding, snowmen, and sleigh rides are a definite must for cold weather. So get in the last of your fall bonfires, because winter is on the way!

Stay Stylish - As easy as it is to stick to sweats and sweatshirts, staying put together always adds to a more positive mindset. Winter clothes can be cute too, so break out those duck boots and get out there you fashionistas!

Don’t Be a Stranger - Companions are key this time of year, and that doesn’t just mean a significant other. What better time to patch up rusty relationships with your family and friends? And keep those you’re already close with closer by getting them a killer gift for whatever holiday they’ll be celebrating.

Just Let it Slide - Don’t be a scrooge this season, but don’t let others attitudes affect you either. It’s hard to stay positive when everything is dark and dreary, and chances are everyone else is getting a little cabin fever too. Keep as cool as the temps, and don’t let others get you down.

Don’t forget, it’s always important to stay positive and make the most out of your days! I wish you luck throughout the coming season, and I want to hear from all of you. What are your tips for staying positive through those cold winter days? Comment below!
