I think this is pretty common for northeasterners, but I am finally coming down with the blues. When it first starts getting colder in the fall I just look forward to Thanksgiving and then the holidays in December which makes time go by pretty quickly and the never ending cold and shorter days go unnoticed. Then January hits and every year I do my best to stay cheery. Getting engaged and starting on wedding planning helped this January fly by but February hit me hard.

I went to the blog world to find some solutions and overall it has helped a lot. I would love to share some of the tips and tricks that have helped me:

Playing Set (I am addicted and now even play on my phone)

Relaxing with some special hot chocolate

Some spa time in the shower

Basking in the glow of a Mood Light

Exercise! (If your not in the mood for anything intense, even some calm yoga breathing will make you feel 10x better)

Go out on a special date (Its Restaurant Week in NYC!)

Light up the room

My favorite: Bake and then bakesomemore (it will also warm up your apartment)!

How about you, what are some of your tips and tricks for getting through the winter?
