Winter Blues Blend

It’s winter….I think.  It’s sort of – not hot and the leaves are all brown.  It’s Texas after all and winter is more of a theory here.  But I still get the winter blues; especially in January.

Christmas is over and so the post-holiday let down sets in.  Christmas was great, family was great, it was wonderful and memories were made and then…..it’s all over.  Time to get back to life.

I wanted to share a few things that help me not to let those winter blues take hold.  january-copy

  1.  A good read.  A good book cures a multitude of ills.  A fun kind of old-school book I discovered last year was “Beating the Winter Blues” by Claudia Arp.  It’s a fun read and while we are no where near “trapped” inside during the winter, we have our share of dreary days.
  2. A new project.  Last year was our first year to try gardening on any kind of scale.  We learned a lot and were excited to remember that, while it is still winter, it’s time to start planning this spring’s garden!  Maybe we can reap more than 3 tomatoes and 5 wonky cucumbers.
  3. A fresh blend.  A fresh smell can do wonders.  Essential oils not only provide a pleasant aroma, but 100% pure oils provide all manner of wellness benefits as well.  A new winter blend I’m trying this winter is Orange and Ginger!  A few drops of each in the diffuser and my room is bright and warm.
  4. A new treat.  I treated myself to a new tube of Grapefruit lip balm.  The citrus scent reminds me of summer and of course the moisturizing effects are great for the inevitable chapped lip!
