For our family, January and February are pretty slow months. The hustle and bustle of the holidays are over, but the yard work and ball practices of springtime have not yet started. During the last part of winter, I often find myself sort of drifting along without a direction. Here are a few ideas to help you relax after a busy December, or get a jump on things so you're ready to go when life becomes busy again...
Wear your pajamas all day and enjoy an unexpected, lazy, day.
Take photos of the many sights of winter — it really is a beautiful season!
Eat homemade soup or chili!
More time inside driving you crazy? Take some time to dig in and organize something! You’ll be so happy you did later!
Let in the sunshine! Open the blinds and enjoy as much sunlight as possible! Sunlight is a great mood lifter!
Warm, fuzzy socks…..
Send someone a little note by snail mail — lift their spirits too!
Check out the book before it's made into a movie - some awesome books are headed to a theater near you!
Plan your summer vacation. It will give you something to look forward to and get excited about!
Get a manicure / pedicure … or do it the less expensive way (like me!) and do your own at home!
Create a budget, and maybe a savings plan for NEXT year's holiday season.
Clean out your closets and donate clothing to Goodwill... or, have friends over for a fun clothing “swap party”!
Actually MAKE something you pin on Pinterest!
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
