Instead of enjoying the colder weather, snow and the Christmas tree people get caught up in the shopping, cooking, decorating and other tasks which only make them tired.
Wouldn't it be better if you could stop, relax and feel what it was like when you were a child? For kids the winter season is always fun as they get to play with snow, decorate the tree, take their wooden or plastic sleds down the hill, and have days off from school.
I understand that it might be hard to do as adults have more responsibility but it is important to know how to take a balance.
All work and no play can make even the most positive individual depressed and quickly.
One of the ways is to really stop thinking so much about the past and the future and focus on the now.
If you have ever heard about the saying "go with the flow" then this is the time to execute and put it into action.
Small things such as the leaves falling down, the crisp cold air, and the overall vibe of winter should be enough to get you excited if you are capable of living in the moment.
My favorite thing to do is to work outside during when the sun is out as it does tend to be a bit too cold to do it the entire day.
The days seem slower and since I live right next to the woods I get to see the animals preparing for the winter.
This gives me a lot of energy and make my mood much better overall.
For some people that work in a regular business setting I recommend to wake up a bit earlier or even relax outside for a few minutes after work and just look at their surroundings and enjoy.
This is what I used to do when living in Brooklyn, NY and so no one can make excuses that they live in a city and there is nothing to look at.
Everything comes down to your perception and that is why everything can be looked at from two different ways, either the good or the bad.
Another way to bring back those childhood memories is to surround yourself with items that remind you of those times.
For me those are vintage Christmas decorations, twig lights and train sets.
This is what I had around me growing up and I love nothing more then sitting by the fireplace, looking at the decorated Christmas tree and watch the small train racing around it.
Remember, that usually the smallest things are what give us happiness and live your life accordingly.
