Most people take winter in stride and deal with it well enough to a certain point. The cold and snow are fine, even welcome during the duration of the holiday season, but once the Christmas lights finally come down and you have broken your last New Year’s resolution, you are quite sick of winter.
What you are experiencing is a holiday hangover. The days are still short, the temperatures cold and spring is still a couple of months away. But don’t let that get you down, there are ways you can beat the winter blues. So grab a cup of coffee and discover what you can do to feel better.
Smokin’ Beans Coffee Company, your source for bulk coffee beans, offers ways to beat the winter blues.
Start a Project
Winter is as good a time as any to start on one of the many household projects you have been putting off for the last several months. Without a doubt, there are many things that need to be done. And even if you have already painted all of the bedrooms and your closets are organized, you can always clean up the garage.
Get a Hobby
You should definitely get a hobby to help beat the winter blues. If traditional hobbies like painting, stamp collecting and building models don’t interest you, you can always try a less traditional hobby like beetle fighting, soap carving or fronting your own death metal band.
Create Some Lists
Winter is the perfect time of year to get caught up on books you have been meaning to read, television shoes you have been meaning to see and movies you want to watch.
So start a list of all of the things you want to accomplish this winter. Let’s start with a list of different types of coffee you want to try.
Eat Winter Foods
This is a good time of the year to experiment with some new recipes. Stews and soups taste great and are a winter staple, find a new recipe and surprise the family with something new.
Build a Fire
It’s totally primal, that feeling you get when you are sitting in front of a roaring fire when the heat sticks to your face and you stare into the body of the glowing flames. There is just something calming about the glow of the embers as they warm your hands and feet.
If you lack the means to make a fire, try somewhere else. We are betting that there is a coffee place or restaurant nearby with a fireplace.
Hang With Positive People
You might spend a typical morning composing an email while listening to your coworkers gripe about the cold weather and their workload. This will only bring you down.
What you need to do is grab a cup of coffee and find a few coworkers who can help cheer you up. These are people who talk about happy things and blessings in their lives. They are people who can make you happy because they are happy.
And if a great cup of coffee makes you happy, then order more. Order your coffee from Smokin’ Beans.
