Tips for Beating the Winter Blues

By Alpert Schreyer on February 26, 2014

Maryland Snow Day Icy temperatures, tornado warnings, and yet another layer of snow are becoming part and parcel of Maryland’s seemingly unending winter this year. If you find yourself huddled indoors for one more snow day or a power outage, it’s understandable that you may feel restless, irritated, and just plain bored. For many, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is very real and these continuing “Days of Shivery,” as the Farmers’ Almanac is calling it, is only making matters worse.

The Law Offices of Alpert Schreyer would like to offer the following tips for beating the winter blues and fighting off cabin fever.

Step Outside – If you are beginning to feel a bit stir crazy and the weather is at least tolerable, bundle up and go outside to walk the dogs, build a snowman, or enjoy a brisk hike.  The fresh air will do you good and nothing will make you as relieved to be indoors again like getting your fill of the great outdoors.

Try Something New – Just because you’re stuck at home doesn’t mean you’re stuck with the same old routine. Now is the time to try out a new recipe, pick up that guitar you haven’t played in months, or dust off a book you’ve been meaning to read. Seize the day!

Settle in for a Marathon – Pick out a televisions series, movie genre, or actor/actress and indulge in a full day or weeklong viewing marathon with your family and friends. Don’t forget the snacks (healthy and otherwise) and just enjoy!

Get Social – It can be all too easy to feel isolated when the temperatures drop, but there are plenty of ways to stay social even in the dead of winter. Visit friends and loved ones, host a slumber party, or log on for a video chat session with your best friend to share a few laughs and make plans for spring.

Give to Others – This time of year can be difficult for everyone, but if you find yourself feeling low, reach out to those in need to lend a helping hand. Volunteer at a local charity or donate food and clothing to a homeless shelter. Not only will you brighten someone else’s day, but you’ll forget about your own worries for a while.

How do you overcome the winter blues? We’d love to know!
