Is it just me or has it been a tough two weeks? Jan 1 - Jan 14 seemed a bit dreary. Could've been the weather. Could've been just me. Who knows? But, I do know that I'm finally out of it thanks to a few proactive measures. In case you were (or still are) feeling a case of the doldrums too, I shall share them with you today.
Caveat: it would've been nice to treat myself to a day at the spa or something luxurious like that but let's be honest...that's not realistic for most of us so let's do this budget style so we can all participate!
Here it goes:
1. Get a good night's sleep
2. Buy fresh plants, maybe 3, for your main living spaces.
3. Drink a fresh squeezed juice (I like Blue Star in SLC--they squeeze your juice upon ordering and have a drive-thru--try the orange/apple/carrot combo)
4. Organize a frequently viewed/used closet or drawer (I did my clothing closet). You'll be amazed at the piece of mind it brings to you.
5. Do something nice for someone else. Bringing joy to someone else will only make you happier.
