Blue is my second favorite color but I do not like to experience the emotion of having the blues. 😭 My winter blues have been the worst I have seen them in years. I am a morning person who currently has an issue getting out of bed…in the mornings! 😳 That has never happened to me before…at least not for an entire season! 😩 During my New Years vacation, I did notice that I had less energy at night to go places than I typically do when it’s Spring or Summer. When I got back home…things only got worse. It takes me forever to achieve one task…sometimes hours. I try to stay patient with myself because I realize that this isn’t really me. I’m battling the worst case of winter blues and I have to first accept that fact. Winter blues has even affected my ability to blog. Most days I have great ideas but no energy to write them down so when you get a gem like “Community Penis” bask in it because it came from a place of burning desire to brighten your day while shedding some comic relief on a serious topic. The one thing that has kept a smile on my face is rewatching all 7 seasons of “Game Of Thrones.” Second only to “Golden Girls,” Game Of Thrones has become one of the few series to consistently brighten my day. 🙌🏽 Don’t know what it is about hearing the words “milk of the puppy” or hearing Arya say that “The North Remembers” but I just break out in happy cries and laughter! Thank God for that show. 💜 A little laughter or happy cry goes a long way when one is feeling joyless. To combat the Winter blues, I am starting the following regime in hopes it helps subside some of my negative feelings: (5) change up my diet to include less sugars, (4) do some light lifting and exercise, (3) stay away from stressful people and stressful conversations, (2) make sleep a priority and (1) try some meditation. If you are going through something similar…do what works for you. Most of all, be patient with yourselves as you travel through this storm. I truly believe that small changes will lead to big results. The result here is to feel more upbeat and to have more energy. Keep in mind that Spring is on her way and we won’t be in this dreary cold place forever. One Love💕 ~KJM on Charm School Monday.
