A friend recently told me that she is feeling the winter blues this year. The lack of sunlight is giving her a mild case of SAD (seasonal affective disorder). Her symptoms are mild so she doesn't need medication or a special light. After a bit of research she decided to use some bright colors in her home to trick her brain into a happier mood.
She is adding splashes of bright colors. Adding color to boost your mood is something that has been covered before in this blog. It does have some relevance for this time of year in the northern hemisphere where our days are shorter with less sunlight. Adding throw pillows to your rooms in bright colors is one way to brighten the room. Bright photographs on the walls also bring in those happy colors. Don't forget to try flowering houseplants. Flowers always make us feel better.
Do you have any tricks that you use to overcome those winter blues? Share them in the comments!
One of the first things that comes to mind when you think of red and green is Christmas. But your room doesn't have to look like Christmas if you use these tips.
For a limited time only I have decided to offer you the opportunity to purchase coffee mugs featuring some of my photo art. Currently there is only a small number of my photographs that offer this product.
These are fun inexpensive gifts for teachers, your hairstylist or any other people you would like to remember this season. You can make them personalized by filling them with special goodies. If you see a photograph that doesn't have this product offering contact me and I will make it available for you.
I hope you enjoy these and would appreciate your feedback.
