    Winter blues are the absolute worst but I definitely agree with all your wise tips here to keep you smiling. Another one that works for me is spend time with animals. They have a calming effect and can be little comedians. If you don’t have any pets go to a petting farm and say hello to a goat or llama. Their cheeky faces always make me feel better about the world :)

      Thanks Victoria, I shall go ant find a goat to say hello to at the weekend. If for no other reason than I don’t think I have shared pleasantries with a goat before. :)

    I am still working out in the garden-weeding, spreading mulch, cutting back, raking leaves etc. Exercise and fresh air, sometimes even some sunshine-keeps me fit and happy.

      Yes, there’s still lots to be done. I’m sure that some of us go into a semi hibernation mode however…and finding the drive to get out there is diminished. I jump out of bed at 6am in the summer…now it’s something of an effort! :)
