More on banishing the winter blues…
Being indoors a great deal more during the winter, it is important to make our surroundings as cheerful as possible. Some simple additions and changes in decor may be just what your home needs to help you survive the winter blues.
Add Brightly Colored Throw Pillows and Scented Candles
Think the colors of Spring and Summer when you are looking for ways to brighten up the interior of your home during winter and you will create an illusion of a warmer and brighter season, Don’t overlook the power of simply draping warm-colored throw blankets over a chair or loveseat. Not only will this add to the coziness of your room, but it also makes the space feel more inviting to friends and family
What we eat also plays an important part in banishing winter blues. One easy way to add extra nutrition and a little bit of summer into meals is to grow your own herbs. Many herbs produce pretty flowers and growing them indoors will add a nice fragrance to your home
Just because there is not as much natural light during the winter months doesn`t mean that you have to go without. Replace regular light bulbs with bulbs that produce simulated natural light. They help to reduce eye fatigue and promote a better sense of well being
I am really going to put some effort in to THINKING SPRING today. I think I’ll banish some of my Saturday House Blessing and go to my storage boxes and find those Spring decorations that I usually don’t bring out til the middle of March.
It should be a Super Saturday here at my house,
I hope yours is a Super one too!
