The changing of the seasons from summer to fall can be one of the more depressing times of the year. Gone are the long days and glorious sunshine and in their place arrive early nights, the cold and the wet.
That makes fall and early winter the time for many of us when we are the least positive about our life and prospects. Luckily, there are lots of different ways you can battle the onset of the gloom that comes with the changing of the seasons.
From something as obvious as treating yourself to something new or special to help cheer yourself up to a task such as making your own dinner to improve your health, here are eight simple ways you can easily improve your life.
Develop a consistent bedtime routine
How much time do you waste in the morning? You might be too tired to get out of bed and end up in a mad rush as a result, or you might spend 20 minutes picking out an outfit to wear work. If your day begins with stress, anxiety, and worry, then chances are it’s going to continue that way.
That’s why a consistent bedtime routine is so important. If you’ve had a shower, sorted out your clothes and made your lunch the previous evening, there isn’t that necessary to run around in a stress when you wake up the next morning.
Preparing the night before eliminates all that stress and allows you to wake up relaxed and looking forward to taking on the day ahead. You’ll be amazed what a difference that can make.
Treating yourself to something nice is guaranteed to cheer you up – and it isn’t all about splashing the cash either.
Surely, purchasing a brand new car on that top creditcard you’ve taken out might go some way to lifting the approaching winter gloom, but there are so many smaller ways to treat yourself in order to improve your life.
It could be as simple as going to that brand-new Italian restaurant everyone is raving about, booking yourself in for a relaxing massage or taking yourself off to watch your favorite soccer team. Whatever it is, treat yourself to whatever makes you happy every once in a while. You deserve it.
Make your lunch
If you are one of the 90% of American’s who don’t like to cook, then think again. Making your own lunch or dinner is a cheap and easy way to improving your life.
Firstly, there are the health benefits. A freshly made salad full of locally sourced ingredients is much better for your body than that cheese and pickle sandwich from a shop that is a few hours short of its best before date.
