December 10 -- Another beautiful warm day in Virginia. This morning I had a long drive to a gym 25 miles away. It was dreary and foggy. When I came out at 11 a.m., it was sunny and 70 degrees! I love this warm weather in December!

LOL There's a dvd for cats that you leave on while you're away. And the cat is entertained! LOL

Other options (besides fireplaces) are:

There's fish aquariums... Mountains... Waterfalls.... Christmas lights... Sandy beaches... Lava bubbles... Rain... Snowfall...

LOTS of choices!

This isn't "green" related, but I have a dvd that plays a burning fire. It crackles like the real thing. The fire goes from little to big. There's a music option.

Anyway, when I play it, it gives me a cheerful mental lift while it's on! (Winter time only.)

I seem to recall that there are those with other choices.... waterfall and ???

I'll have to go search it out, but I'm not really wanting to part with $19.99 + shipping! LOL

I would have to agree with the green color thing, I do a trail at a park and now everything is just bla colored, so now I focus on looking for and animals around the other day I saw 5 deer, there are blue jays and cardinals still flying around too. What helps me the most is the sunshine, I'm just so much more energetic and motivated when it is out. On gloomy days I just want to hibernate in the house and do nothing but eat.

You know how we all enjoy being outdoors for exercise?

In the link below it shows how the color green affected people's moods for the better while exercising.

Maybe we can use this info (somehow) as we go into the winter months...

Thinking out loud here: Possibly find exercise dvds of outdoor scenes?

I was hoping the article would have given us some workable suggestions!

Our midwest (USA) weather is about to change!

We've had UNUSUALLY warm weather for end of November/beginning of December.

Guess it couldn't last forever! LOL

Now it's getting time to pull out the thermal underwear and the ice scrapers as of this weekend and early next week.

Of course... I'm about to leave here to flee south and back to warmer weather! LOL LOL LOL

Weather discussion-I came from near 100 degree Summer weather to winter in the south. So far though we have not had it too bad...Wednesday was in the 70's but Thursday felt like it could snow-today dreary but still in the 60's..outdoor exercising is the best-no matter what the weather :)(ok except extreme heat and thunder storms) Enjoy all!

Today it was sunny and 37, so I got in a nice walk before teaching a class. The sun makes all the difference for me! Hope everyone is doing well

It was 75 in central Virginia also. It was sunny and beautiful. Today, it is rainy, and it's supposed to cool off. I got lots of outside stuff done yesterday!

It's 50 degrees here today, it rained last night and early this morning, but I did get in a 30min walk outside just tried to steer clear of the puddles. Also taught a strength class then did another 30mins on elliptcal. Just got home from the grocery store and the sun has final came out. Sitting in the the sun checking email and my sparks groups. A little sunshine always help to make it feel like a Great Day!

It's 60 degrees here in Indiana and misting rain, but since it was warm I didn't let the rain get in the way of my morning walk!

Beautiful day here in Kansas City, MO (USA).

Maybe a bit overly windy, but a wonderful day!
