How To Get Through The Winter Slump

Before we get started, I don’t mean for this post to be negative whatsoever! Maybe you feel completely opposite than I do and you are still in the “new year, new me” mind set ready to kick ass! BUT I’ve been riding the struggle bus over here! For my family and I this year is going to be epic! But right now, I feel like I am wishing away time waiting for all these great things to happen. Generally, I like to make the best out of boring times and stay busy but this cold weather is killin’ my vibe.

I want to be in warm sunshine, eat lunch at the park, walk around downtown with coffee, do you know what I mean?! I am guessing there is only a couple weeks of this cold weather left and then we will be ready to get that Vitamin D. To get through these next few weeks I am doing a lot but I will narrow down to the Top 2 things that are helping me get through the winter slump.

  1. Focusing On health

I decided to start Kayla Itsines BBG 12 week workout program. I have completed week one and eager to continue for the next 11 weeks. This program is structured and the workouts are quick which I love. I am held accountable too because I follow a a guide and would feel bad if I missed a day. If you have not already made plans to get your health in check, now is the perfect time to do it. Spring break is just around the corner and one month of clean eating and consistent workouts is just what you need to get through the last few weeks of winter and ready for warm weather. Go check out my TOP 10 Health and Fitness Tips.

2. Spring Cleaning

Is your house still a wreck from Christmas? Probably not but mine is! We have so much stuff we need to get rid of replace and it is starting to overwhelm me. I am going to start working my way through the house cleaning each room at a time. Also, if you have any ideas about how to sell or get rid of our old stuff let me know in the comment below! Since it is still so chilly out we are spending a lot of time indoors, what better way to keep you busy than getting ahead on your spring cleaning! I try to follow a weekly cleaning schedule but some days absolutely nothing gets done…so I think making it easier and going through the rooms and making sure general chores get done daily will be better for my schedule.

  1. You might try consignment shops to sell some things and non profit organizations doing a sale as a fund raiser. Check with your Nana about this.

  2. Down here we have, through Facebook, a buy sell trade page for the city of Hutch and Reno County. Check to see if there are groups where you can post your stuff. See if there is a website through KU where you can sell to possibly other small families or students that would be interested in what you have.
