As winter draws to an end, it's typically a time of year when you feel tired, run down, lacking in energy and even depressed. Here are a few ideas to re-energise and bring positive vibrations back into your day!
Celebrate Valentines Day!
Don't let February 14th slip by without a celebration. Spread the love, serve a pink dinner, drink pink champagne or simply show someone you love them. However you choose to celebrate it's a great excuse for a bit of fun! ©
Welcome the Chinese New Year!
February 2014 marks the beginning of the Chinese year of the Wooden Horse. Traditionally the Chinese celebrate this time of year by eating fish because the Chinese word for fish sounds like their word for laughter. The food served represents positive aspects of Chinese life, for example sticky rice represents relationships and togetherness. It is a time for settling debts, clearing out and generally getting ones life in order to start the new year in a positive frame of mind. It's another great excuse to get motivated and celebrate! ©
Exercise & feel better!
One of the best ways to re-energise is by becoming more active. This can be as simple as finding time to take a brisk walk preferably in a beautiful, natural environment, or alternatively it could be a catalyst to try something completely new.
Water sports can be particularly invigorating, producing a real "feel-good factor." Aqua bike or Water Spinning is the latest craze, burning around 800 calories per session. ©
Add colour & lift your mood!
Colours affect our mood so surrounding ones self with the right choice of colours helps produce positive energy. Try displaying a bunch of fresh yellow flowers in a central point of the room. Bringing nature indoors definitely enhances the atmosphere and the colour yellow will chase away those winter blues.
Brighten up your living room by scattering some throw cushions in vivid tones.
Change the bulb in your bedroom lamp to a warm violet, known to improve mood and promote calm.
