1. Find at least one winter activity that you enjoy, dress for it and then do it as often as you can.
2. Spend time with people who like and make the most of winter – their ideas and enthusiasm are infectious.
3. Get some sun every day that the sun shines – which is many days in the winter – it warms the body and the spirit.
4. Pay attention to your diet – it is easy to forget healthy eating in the winter but even more important to eat well when it’s cold.
5. Make use of the many indoor recreational facilities and opportunities provided by your town or city’s recreation department. Especially the open hours for public skating.
6. Read the books you have been meaning to read but never quite got around to reading.
7. Take up a new hobby, something you have wanted to do or learn how to do – and spend time at it.
8. If you don’t ski, try snowshoeing. If you don’t want to snowshoe, then try walking outdoors.
9. If you’re feeling blue, try one of the lights that have been designed for people with seasonal moodiness. They seem to work.
10. Stay calm, think positive and know that spring is on its way 🙂
