The southern hemisphere is experiencing severe winter season these days and many people are going through the proverbial winter blues. This is a kind of depression because people are unable to move out and they don’t see the sun for many days. In whichever country you live, whenever there is winter, one way or another you go through winter blues and there are many ways you can beat them. This article lists some of the things that you can do in order to remain productive and bright during winter:
- Mind your attitude: No matter how harsh the weather is, it is your attitude that controls how you are feeling. Just think about the Santa Claus. The poor guy lives in the North Pole and isn’t he supposed to be the jolliest person around? Fine, he might be mythological and all, but it is his attitude that keeps him jovial and laughing all the time. Look at the positive side. There are so many things you can do during winters. As a family you can huddle together around a fire. You can also get together your neighbors and have a bonfire outside and then you can all sing and dance around it. You don’t even have to wait for an occasion.
- Have a purpose in life: It’s mostly those people who don’t have any purpose in life who go through winter blues. You are brimming with enthusiasm everyday if you have a purpose in life. Developed a passion. Whether it is your profession or your hobby, try to do your best.
- Become more social: We are gregarious by nature as our social studies books often say. So naturally we feel warm when we are around people we love and care about. Try to meet as many people as possible. Organize get-togethers and parties at the smallest pretext. Recall one of those Tolstoy or Dostoyevsky novels in which the rich are constantly having soirees where they discuss people and politics. If they could survive the Russian winter, you can survive any winter.
