Oh the dreaded winter blues. This was a conversation topic in my neighborhood on New Years Day. There are several neighbors that get together quite often in the summertime and in the winter, it really becomes a quite place to live. There were a few things that we came up with in order to beat the winter blues.
We decided we would have a monthly game night where we would all get together to socialize. The other thing that I decided on personally was to get together with my girlfriend for dinner once a week. It does break up the monotony of winter.
I guess there are things that we need to do to stop sitting in the house and get outside in order to maintain solace during the winter seasons. Go for a walk with the family, sled riding, anything that involves getting outside. I think this will help with the dreaded winter blues.
Make a plan also. I plan on going to Las Vegas at the end of January in order to get a little bit of warmth in my blood. That way you have something to look forward to. Hope this helps...
