Do you remember getting the winter blues as a child? I can almost guarantee that you cannot. The reason you did not get the winter blues as a child was because you loved the winter as much as spring and summer. What happened? You got older and found yourself a lot more in demand, you may have a job and you may be a parent or spouse.
When you find yourself home and free from work for the day, bundle up and gather the kids if they are home with you, and a spouse. If you are alone, you can enjoy this as much alone as having others with you. Now, what am I talking about? I am talking abut getting outside and making snow angels in the snow. You did it as a child and thought it was great fun didn’t you? Now that your an adult what is different? The only thing that has probably changed is you have gotten older and maybe put on a little weight like a lot of Americans do when they age.
Making snow angels is so much fun, heck anyone can do it, from age 3 to 93, don’t let your old age thoughts stop you from having fun, who cares what the neighbors think, if you have close neighbors, just get out and have fun. If you have a digital camera take a few photos of your snow angels, print one out and place it on your refrigerator to remind you of your happy time, and when the spouse or kids come home you can show the photo to them, in case your snow angel has melted or filled in with fresh snow.
If you do find the winter blues creeping in your life this season, why not just bundle up and get outside and turn this cold, bleak time of year, into a fun time by making snow angels, it’s not just a great activity for enjoyment, but it’s great to help shake the winter blues.
