Join a health club and take part in physical recreation. Water aerobics, swimming, volleyball, archery, Tai Chi, dance and yoga are invigorating. Exercise with a tennis or biking buddy. Camaraderie may make "winter blahs" disappear.
Focus on your breathing or picture a favorite scene from nature to reduce stress and live in the moment.
Computer training, bread baking, painting, carpentry or interior design may light a fire. Sing with a choir or checkmate your opponent. Have fun growing.
Volunteer to dish out soup at a homeless shelter and gratitude will greet you. Is there a youngster who needs extra help with homework or a homebound neighbor who would welcome a visit from you?
Sort through magazines and collectibles. Donate clothes you haven't worn in the last year. A streamlined home and closets make house cleaning and wardrobe decisions easier. Say no to extra projects. You deserve time to read, be with loved ones or just loaf.
Munching on fresh celery, carrots, or fruit will give you a lift without the extra calories. Drink a tall glass of water, when you feel hungry, to satisfy a momentary craving without the calories.
Sunlight provides vitamin D, a necessary element for calcium absorption and strong bones. Walking is aerobic, so run errands on foot. Fresh air and sunlight put many things into perspective.
Find an opportunity in a challenging event. When a friend of mine didn't get a promotion at work, it motivated her to open her own business. When you step lightly through your days, it puts a spring in your step and joy in your heart.
