Winter can be a challenging season to stay inspired. Short days and cold temperatures can dampen the spirit and make it hard to stay motivated. But it’s not impossible! There are many ways to stay inspired during the winter months.
1. Take a nature walk. Bundle up and go outside to enjoy the beautiful winter scenery. Take a walk and observe the snow-covered trees, the colorful sunsets, and the blanket of snow on the ground. Take the time to appreciate the beauty of nature, to reflect on life and your expression of it.
2. Get creative. Take the opportunity to explore your creative side and create something new. Paint a picture, write a story, experiment with cooking or make a craft project. Let your inner child come out and play.
3. Make quality time for yourself. It is especially important to take care of your mental health during the winter. Make sure to set aside time for yourself to do things you enjoy.
4. Connect with others. No man is an island so they say and over the last few years, I think we all learned how important social interaction is for mental health. Call up a friend, chat with your neighbour or coworker, or join an interest group. Online connections work too!
5. Learn something new or find new ways to do old things. Learning creates new neuropathways and stimulates new ways of thinking and being.
