10 Things I Plan To Do Over Winter Break

10 Things I Plan To Do Over Winter Break

To Snuggle or Not to Snuggle

As winter break comes near, I am coming to terms with the fact that, aside from the actual holidays, I do not have any plans or really plan on making plans. My friends have work, winter courses or they are traveling for the holidays.

Out of my three jobs, none will be in session till after the holidays. So instead I have come up with tasks that should keep both me and you busy for the three to four weeks.

I plan on:

1. Taking up a new hobby.

Knitting could be fun, right?

2. Recovering an old hobby.

Finally finishing my mom's quilt that I started five years ago. (I wonder if I should just knit her one instead)

3. Reading a good book or two.

However, Netflix has so many new shows and movies.

4. Wrapping the many presents I have stashed.

Or I could just put them all into gift bags.

5. Creating next semesters work out plan.

Or I could just eat all of my Christmas candy so I won't have to next semester.

6. Watching all of the Harry Potter movies.

I'll probably just nap through the movies.

7. Starting a new diet just in time for the new year.

But waiting till I move back to school sounds like a good idea.

8. Clearing out my hard-drive.

Or just looking for a great #TBT photo of me and my busy friends.

9. Snuggling my cute little puppy.

I'll actually do this every day.

10. Starting my application for the teacher education program.

I guess snuggling my puppy can wait...

Warm Weather Is Finally Here And That Means Seasonal Depression Can Go Fly A Kite

Like seriously, get out of here.

Any form of depression flippin' sucks. Like something major. Mental health is wicked important and sometimes crazy hard to maintain. The cold weather of winter does absolutely nothing to help either and ends up making it a lot harder to stay motivated, want to get out of bed and to ever go outside to be productive and active. Vitamin D is so detrimental to the health of our bodies. The sunshine lets us soak that up, but it's almost impossible to do when it's sub-zero for four months straight (ok, a bit of an exaggeration, but not really).

Seasonal depression brings out the worst moods during the long winter months and drags us down. What we can do is to busy ourselves and push ourselves to be the happiest we can be with enjoyable activities. Make sure you do fun things that will help you avoid being stir crazy. It's a vital time of self-care and making sure you are physically and emotionally healthy.

Once the icy force field of the winter breaks, spring flourishes and so do we. The heavyweight that was hanging on our shoulders is lifted off. We instantly feel lighter. It's an amazing feeling and so relieving. Getting through the winter in one piece feels so successful.

So, have fun now. Enjoy the fresh air and let the sunshine kiss your skin. Embrace your happy and positive thoughts. Cherish not having to wear a jacket and the fact that you need air conditioning in your car instead of heat. Roll the windows down and blast the music. Make your days include some form of outside activities and exercise. Celebrate every single aspect of the spring and summer because when winter rolls around again, you will want memories to keep you going so that when you have to do it all over again, it will go smoothly.

So, goodbye seasonal depression, we won't miss you.
