Valentine’s Day Outfit for 2018.
The temperatures continue to drop here in New Jersey and so have our energy levels, right? Once the snow melts, it begins to snow again. It seems endless! It is difficult to get motivated. January is a rough month because, let’s be honest, there really isn’t much going on. If you are in a relationship, you may be counting down the days to February 14th and searching for a Valentine’s Day outfit for 2018. If that’s the case, I highly recommend my pink high-waisted pants from ASOS for Valentine’s Day. If you aren’t looking for a Valentine’s Day outfit and you are here to find ways to beat the winter blues, I’m going to share a few of my tips.
Do something once a day that pulls you out of your regular routine. If you work from home, work in a different setting such as a local coffee shop. If that isn’t possible, then move to a different room. If you go to the grocery store every Sunday, purchase something that you usually don’t buy. It can be something healthy or as simple as a different ice cream flavor. It will give yourself something to look forward to at night. If you have to pick the kids up at the same time every day, take a different route and listen to your favorite song on repeat on the way there.
Sometimes, we don’t know that we are stuck in the same routine and suddenly, we are on autopilot. When you are on autopilot, you are not living, you are simply getting by. Notice when this is happening and make a change.
Don’t beat yourself up, everyone gets stuck, especially during the dreary days of winter. It’s important to acknowledge the feeling so you can snap yourself out of it quicker.
The winter is inevitable, your negative attitude about it doesn’t have to be. Purchase a new coat or new snow boots that are on sale so you get excited when it snows (and you don’t feel guilty that you spent a ton of money) Purchase a new air freshener in your car so when you blast your heat, your car smells fantastic.
Think about it this way, we only have four seasons. Why spend your life dreading one or more of them? Learn to see the good in every season. If you find yourself hating winter, buy a great big calendar and hang it on your fridge. This will remind you that spring is on its way.
