Winter is here, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. Along with the end of the year, the holidays and the cold weather, it’s an uphill struggle to stay motivated and plow through until the warmer seasons. Need an extra boost for the winter? Incorporate these three things into your routine.
It's that time of the year that we remember to appreciate warmth. During a long and cold day, doing the simple things can give you much comfort. This includes bundling up and treating yourself to hot drinks and hearty meals, as well as plugging in your space heater and keeping an extra blanket at your desk. Embracing all the little joys that comes even with the cold will make tolerating this winter a little easier.
Don't let the cold keep you away from spending quality time outdoors. Take a walk during your lunch or break time to maximize your exposure to natural light. You can also make use of excess energy and get your body moving and your blood circulation going with the exercise. Taking a walk can additionally help your mind to refresh if you've been cooped up indoors because of the weather.
Brighten up your day by incorporating energy to your workspace. Simple things you can do includes adding colorful supplies to your desk, bringing in a plant that can remind you of spring, or decorating your space with pictures of people and things that make you smile. Surrounding yourself with happier objects and reminders can be important tools to boosting your spirits.
