What can we do to achieve that happy mindset while the weather isn't cooperating? Even though the pharmacy recording is telling us to order meds for the impending allergy season, we're still shivering Here are 4 suggestions.
1.) Research published in BMC Psychiatry has linked low levels of vitamin B12 with "loss of appetite and sleep, and low mood." The researchers state that B12 each day will help to keep us smiling. Making sure we have enough B12 is as easy as eating yogurt(8 oz.) and a slice of Swiss cheese each day (SELF, Feb., 2014, 24)
2.) Since we've finally had a thaw with pouring rain instead of the usual snow, maybe we can lighten up enough to appreciate the beauty that the icy blasts bring.
Mary Kay shows us some of the beauty of winter.
3.) But if these two suggestions aren't enough to move you to that cheerful state, consider looking at Cheryl's and Joan H's pictures. Then close your eyes and imagine wiggling your toes in the warm sand of milder climes.
4.) AND, if all else fails, look below. These will definitely move you to that happy state!
