How To Survive Winter, Part I: January

After Christmas, it's easy to let winter be kind of depressing.  Here are a few easy ways to enjoy it.


  • Eat clementines.  Set them out where you can see them and enjoy the color.
  • String white lights up - around a towel rack, under your cabinets, over your bed, around a door.  They don't have to be for Christmas only!
  • Get your vitamin D!  Go for a walk when it's sunny, and eat eggs and fish, which are both high in vitamin D.  Here's my favorite salmon recipe.
  • Be diligent.  It's such a good feeling to have everything done!  If getting up earlier helps, do that. I love to wake up and have a cup of tea while it's still dark.
  • Listen to bright music. Folk, indie, classical, jazz - whatever floats your boat.  This, this, and this make me happy.  Get happy stations on Pandora.  Leave this page open.  I don't usually recommend any myspace pages, but you really should visit this one.
  • Take a few minutes each day to look at pretty blogs.  Here's a good one.
