Each day I look out the window with an excited and expectant heart about going to do my daily job which is getting a good shot or 2 and each day I get slapped in the face with the reality of what season we are in by the grey cloudy and wet outlook outside.We are finally back to the ration of one to none good weather days per week and through it all work must go on. I have rounded off a few tips on how to stay positive while on the grind regardless of water blues.
THINK HAPPY THOUGHTS AND CARRY ON;
Let’s face it, it’s not like we can crawl back into bed and wait the next 6 months for the clouds to clear and the air to get warmer and dryer, only if wishes were horses. The best way to forget the negatives is to focus on the positives. Think happy thoughts guys, get rid of everything around you that gives a negative energy. I find when we can first work on the mind the rest of it is quite easy really.
KEEP YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY CLOSE
Winter is the best time to spend time reconnecting with people you love. Grab a cup of coffee and have long phone chats with your chums, talk about nothing and everything and have a damn good laugh. Nothing heals the soul better than companionship. What I love doing the most is taking out time in the evenings or weekends and watching a nice movie together with the family, everyone crawled up in one big blanket and just generally being together. This means when you are out during the day keeping up with the hustle at least you have something cozy to look up to when you get home. Cold weather is simply the best for bonding.
WEAR HAPPY CLOTHES;
I know it’s all gloomy and miserable outside, this is the more reason I think you should create positive energy for yourself by wearing happy clothes. For me happy clothes are colourful and vibrant. As much as I love blacks greys and browns sometimes I’m hell bent on not coordinating my looks with the grey skies out there. Adapt your summer clothes for winter. Bring back those pieces that made you run and dance in the sun few months back and let it put a smile back on your face and the face of everyone around you. Research has shown that looking at bright and warm colours releases ‘Dopamine’ which is also down as the feel -good- hormone and this can improve you mood.
