  1. Great tips! my husband had the winter blues bad when we lived in CT. I even changed the lightbulbs in our house to be natural lighting to feel like the sun, not sure if it helped, but I tried, lol

    1. Me too, I hope I get enough snow to build a snowman. I settled the other day for using a sand bucket to make snow castles.

  2. Was just talking to the hubs tonight about taking a winter class or something with photography that is both enjoyable and knowledgeable. Of course, cooking always beats the blues for me, most of the time!

    1. Oh, photography is a great idea! What a great excuse to get outside in nature.

  3. Get outside, yes, yes, that is the best one. But it is just too dang cold for me! Actually, I think it is more the fact that I have to get three little ones suited up to leave the house as well…

  4. We don’t have to contend with snow down here, but on cold, wet, stormy days (like last night and this morning) it’s a great time to get lost in a good book with something warm to drink. Board games are another fun way to pass the time–grab a Scrabble board, Apples to Apples, or Scattegories to make some hours fly by!

  5. We like to play paddle tennis in the winter or snuggle inside by the fireplace and watch a movie. We’ve also been known to have crazy family game nights and ping pong tournaments. Anything that allows us to bond as a family is something we want to do!

  6. Definitely get outside as much as you can! I love walking our dog on the (not too cold) brisk mornings. Gets the body moving! And I usually meditate daily too.
