Fighting The Winter Blues
This week's post is inspired by the Hammer Charm, a symbol for the 8th Global Goal: Decent Work And Economic Growth. Work hard to achieve your own personal goals!
Well, it's over. Here in Montreal, we're known for our humid summers and freezing winters, with not much room available for spring and fall. We had some autumn fabulousness for all of October, but as soon as we hit November, cold fronts have started to creep in and my heart sank when I saw the weather report for next week. Yep, we're going down into the negatives with a chance of a snowstorm. I don't want to overuse the popular Game of Thrones quote, but winter truly is coming.
Sorry, do I sound like a downer? Don't get me wrong, I'm excited for winter wonderlands, the holidays, skiing, and all that jazz, but it's hard not to feel a little blue when you realize so much of the fun outdoor activities you love won't be available to you for quite a while. And it's an issue of human biology as well! Less sunlight on the human body can disrupt brain wave activity and hormone production, so sometimes there's a deeper issue on why we get the winter blues.
But never fear! There's tons of cool ways to trick your mind and body into fighting off the low season moods. Here's a few from me:
Listen To Happy Music
Wear Bright Colours
Include Lots Of Vitamin D In Your Diet
Exercise, Exercise, Exercise!
Start A New Project
We can do this! Have a great week <3
