I am soooo over Winter.... WINTER BLAHS...

Monday, March 14, 2011

I think I have hit my breaking point. Usually the weather does not affect me at all. But I really think I have the Winter Blues.

I am so over being cold, not enough sunlight and I think I am ready to snap.

This winter is just to dang long. Enough already.. BRING ME SPRING.

I am in such a crappy mood my poor DH is always on the receiving end of it and I feel bad.

I don't want to do anything I stay in, snack and watch TV, I don't like to go outside and I am a pretty social person.

How do you handle the Winter BLAH's.... I need some suggestions before it gets any worse;

    I hope you are feeling better and getting over some of those winter blahs. Indoor exercise might lift your spirits.

    Maybe meet a friend at an indoor mall and do some mall walking, then enjoy a healthy snack at the food court and talk.

    This sounds fun to me.. I may have to take my own advice. It will be a challenge tho cuz any mall is an hour away for me..

    Hope spring finds you soon!

    I don't think there is a good way to deal with winter blahs. I like to light a fire in the fireplace, put on a pot of tea and settle down with a good book. My daughter finds that going tanning periodically puts her in a better mood. Of course, if I actually had a tv, then things might be different. LOL

    I'm having the same winter blah feelings in Michigan! Last week I went out in my car and sat in the sun. That way I felt the warmth & received some sunlight on me. It felt SO good. Although I don't like to Tan, I found when I get really down from winter, a quick low amount of time in a tanning bed will make me feel so much better & refreshed. I tend not to do this more than 2 times per year because so many people in my family died of melanoma cancer. Another thing I learned is I am vitamin-d deficient. I now take supplements, and my winter blues aren't as bad. The doctor also advises on getting one of those sun boxes (I can't remember the technical name). She says it helps her get through the winter and makes her feel much better.

    Soon enough.. It's almost April. .Then Summer.. We are almost there!
