Our Top 10 Ways To Beat Those Winter Blues

After having a few weeks of warm weather, we woke up this morning to some very unexpected COLD, GLOOMY weather. Ever since then, I have been feeling kind of down, and unable to shake these WINTER BLUES. Up until today, I had high hopes that this cold weather was behind us, and have been excitedly looking forward to Spring. But today really knocked the wind right out of my sails. 

It comes as no surprise that most people feel down or depressed during the winter months, and it is actually a very common problem that affects a large number of people. It is called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).

So, for now… I am heading to wrap up in a few BLANKETS and will be watching some CHRISTMAS movies. NIGHTY NIGHT, friends! 😉

P.S.: I keep having to remind myself that we are on THANKSGIVING BREAK! NO school work this week! What a RELIEF! We hope all of you ENJOY your Thanksgiving breaks as well… especially all of our HARDWORKING TEACHERS out there! <3
