LGLWSM Newsletter 102 - Beating the Winter Blues
February 24, 2017

I don’t know about you but I’ve been in a real funk. I’m under a tremendous amount of pressure and stress right now – which quite frankly makes me shut down completely. When I get overwhelmed, I don’t want to do anything except stay in bed and cover my head! And if I’m feeling sad and blue, it makes getting up even harder.

During the winter, even the strongest person can turn into an emotional mess. It’s important to find ways to combat the winter blues which help perk you back up.

Tips to Beating the Winter Blues

  • Brightly colored clothes can help bring a little spring back into the dullness of winter. Try avoiding black clothes or if you're wearing dark pants, pair them with bold colored sweaters and tops.

  • Vitamin D (yes back to that) is so important for emotional stability. Make sure you are getting enough and have your levels checked in the winter. If you get sick, chances are your D levels are not up to optimum.

  • Avoid negativity like the plague. If you spend a lot of time on social networks – where people can go off the handle at any moment - try avoiding them for a while. Or find groups of happy people to hang with. There are many of them online. People who associate with positive people are far more likely to be happy themselves.

  • Find home projects to work on when you’re stuck in the house. Organizing a cluttered closet, cooking new recipes, unpacking boxes, or even putting a new puzzle together - are things you can do that distract you from feeling down. A psychologist I went to a long time ago, told me to keep filling my bucket with accomplishments – even the small ones count!

    Here’s a run down of what you’ve missed if you haven't visited my site recently.

    My son sounds like a horse most of the time, snorting and trying to clear his nose. Although breathe-right strips have been a blessing to opening his sinuses, they are not always the best answer. They are costly and there are some other solutions that may work better and are a lot more cost effective. Take the Buteyko method for example. You can read more about it here.

    I cannot overstate the importance of iodine! It is so often overlooked. For a very long time in our history, it was the only source doctor's had for treating infection. In our household, we pulse dose iodine every week for good reason. There are just so many benefits of having free circulating iodine in your bloodstream. If you'd like to know more about taking Lugols iodine, this article will tell you how to do it.

    Did you know that organic foods really don't cost that much more than refined foods? For example, I've been buying organic bananas for a while now. What I've noticed is that they last a week or longer on the counter - and all organic foods act in a similar way. They also fill you up more! If you think that you can't afford to make the switch, read this.

    What kind of pots and pans are you presently using in the kitchen? If you're doing all you can to prepare healthy meals for you and/or your family but are still using old teflon pans, it might be time for an update. There are so many lower cost options available today that are non toxic. Check them out here.

    In the next month or so, I'll be finding out if I still own my home. It's a long story but I can tell you it's very scary. Hopefully, this nightmare will be over soon enough and I can get back to work in a more productive way. All good thoughts and positive energy are welcome! Blessings to you all!
