Baby it's Cold outside!
February 5, 2021
Baby, It’s Cold Outside! Got the winter blues and blahs? Anxious to get back outside into the warmth and sunshine? Aren’t we all, well those of us who have to experience a cold, snowy winter every year anyways!
What to do when we feel all cooped up and depressed? Good question! When y’all figure it out, let the rest of us know! Just kidding!
I feel you. I am you! Being too cold to even go for a walk can feel so restraining! With the world in pandemic mode, it is even worse to feel all cooped up and not be able to do anything outside of our home!
Not feeling like ourselves and feeling all alone can really put us into a tizzy!
Not wanting to stay focused on our health happiness journeys can feel so daunting, when we just can’t be outside with mother nature during the winter months.
Don’t panic and do not feel like you are all alone! Winter will pass, this pandemic will pass, and we will all rejoice and bask into the warmth and sunshine and good health once again!
Remember, just because we may be stuck indoors, doesn’t mean that we can’t be active! There are lots of things we can do to help occupy our time! If anything, this winter, this past year, and this year is teaching or has taught us, is how we can be more family oriented. It is teaching us and has taught us, how to appreciate one another again. To appreciate the little things in life, and what is really important to us.
We can still go outside and go for walks, just gotta bundle up a bit more. Going for a walk in freshly fallen snow, and clean crisp air can do wonders for us! Even if only a short walk!
Looking for new ideas and stuff to do inside to keep our minds busy and focusing on our health happiness journeys, can be impossible some days, but necessary for our own sanity!
