As we are coming into the colder months now I thought I would share 4 simple things that I love to do in the colder months that cheer me up & might cheer you up too 🙂
1. Hot Chocolate Dates – Take a friend, family member, whoever you like and go along to Costa (or wherever sells your favorite drink or food) for a nice lunch or drink “date”. Time is best spent with those you love & even if you just take an hour out of your day to go and grab a nice warm drink, it gives you the chance to sit down, relax for a while and catch up on anything you may have missed! OR. It can be just as nice to cuddle up at home with a drink in your favourite mug if you don’t feel like venturing out 🙂
2. Winter Walks – Put on your warmest clothes & go out for a refreshing walk to clear your head. Somewhere with beautiful scenery & take your dog along if you have one.
In the UK, we have to wear at LEAST 20 layers to go outside…
and that is in summer! Just kidding, it’s not that bad 😉 .
3. Cosy Nights In – Cuddle up on the sofa with a blanket & watch some of your favourite films. It’s only October & I already want to watch “Elf” !
4. Christmas Shopping! – I know it’s early yet so this will be later in the year & sometimes it can be quite stressful but, for me there is something magical about shopping at Christmas. It can be easier to do some of it online now but I still take some time to travel to somewhere so I get to experience the beautiful twinkling lights, the shops and shopping centres expertly decorated, the festive treats..I could go on and on.
Although, there has been times when it feels more like this:
Thanks for reading! What are you looking forward to? 🙂
