    Winter mood

    I have never liked the fall/winter season, I miss the long sunny days and warm weather. Any tips on how to enjoy winter? I'm looking forward to my birthday and Christmas, but I feel like all my friends stay at home and watch Netflix. I do have a busy routine but the short rainy days are not fun.

    I guess it would depend on what your climate is like as to what we could suggest.

    Sounds like a sun lamp, some vitamin D and Calcium supplements may cheer your mood. There are so many things you can do to keep you more active then watching Netflix. Depending on the weather where you live, you could o skating or skiing or take lessons if you don't know how already. Take a special interest course at your local high school night classes. Fly away to a warm climate for a bit (if that's in your budget) Join a gym and get those endorphins pumping through your system through exercise. Those are just a few that comes to mind based on what little you've let us now about yourself.

    What I try to do is get some outdoor time every day - I really do hate the cold -we moved to a warmer climate about 10 years ago but it can still get really cold---- and cold rain, the worst and depressing! But again I try not to stay inside, and I do cardio every day -31-35 minutes -typically inside but sometimes outside. I try to walk very briskly when I am outside and that lifts my mood too. I'd also look into volunteer work at soup kitchens, food banks etc so you'll feel like you're helping others who have to endure the outdoors in a way you didn't imagine.

    Yes I should have described the weather 😁 It's mildly cold, more humid and windy, no snow over here.
    I work out, go to museum/exhibitions and try to improve my cooking skills. I don't want to be like most of my friends who spend their time watching Netflix, I like being busy. There's nothing bad about staying at home, I'm just afraid I might turn into a lazy version of myself.

    Good point, maybe I am overthinking it. And I just realized I don't have sloth pajamas

    Oh there’s a time to be lazy. Of course ! No need to do what your friends do! I have a lot of friends and acquaintances who have very different ideas of how to spend free or down time - there’s room for all of us!
