What is the best way you have found to quash the winter blues?

Asked by Morgan1 (203 points ) April 5th, 2010

During the winter my skin gets dry, the air gets stuffy, and the constant grey is mind-numbing to me. I’ve found running around nude in the secluded back-yard helps a whole bunch. Does anyone have a better suggestion?

It’s too cold to do that here. I just wait for Spring.

Well seeing how I live in South Texas I squashed the winter blues (if you can call it winer here) by going out and working on my koi pond, working on the garden, getting my daughter a slip n slide and letting her run and play around with it…then soon it will be time to scuba dive!! yippee c’mon summer!

I enjoy the joys of winter very deliberately. Snuggling under s pile of covers. Cuddling with my honey. Sipping a cup of hot chocolate.

Using this puts a little Spring in my step.

Go outdoors as you would in any other season. Obviously, some activities are better off performed in the summer but walking at the park, hiking a trail, biking and visiting a beach can all be performed during the winter season. . . . bundle-up or let loose as the weather dictates. Nevertheless, a breath of fresh clean air always help lifts the spirits. A good break-out of sweat is also welcome relief. Just make sure that you use commonsense in protecting your self from the elements.

I despise winter for the reasons you listed.

However, winter sports are pretty much the only sports that I like, so that gives me something to look forward to when winter arrives. Try downhill skiing! I loooove to ski. It’s the only physical activity at which I would consider myself above average. It gives me a pretty good adrenaline rush and makes me feel pretty euphoric. That helps with the winter blues.

Since I’ve never had the winter blues, I can only imagine that warm weather is the cure. I love having distinct seasons and have always enjoyed all of them, particularly Autumn.
