Even though fall and winter are my favorite times of the year, I do tend to get a little more down and experience some SAD (seasonal affective disorder). I think because it’s dark so much more and it’s often too cold to go outside. Sometimes I just want to stay curled up in my bed. When I find myself having that urge, I try to think of a project I can focus on. This seems to lift my spirits and without even realizing it, I’m in a better mood.
Because we are indoors so much during this time of year, you might have to use your imagination a little more to find fun things to do inside. I used to make jewelry when I was younger. The other day I decided to try that again. I have a whole collection of beads and various other parts; I just string things together while I watch a movie or listen to music and it’s very therapeutic. The supplies are pretty cheap and then your friends can marvel at the masterpiece you made!
