Suffering from the winter blues, feeling a little down? Don’t worry, you’re not alone, the colder weather gets us all down at one point or another. The key to beating them is making yourself feel a little happier, and a great way to do that is with a treat or two.
Treat yourself to a beauty splurge
There’s nothing that puts the smile back on the face of a beauty addict more quickly than new products. If you have some spare money and are in need of a pick-me-up, head to your fave cosmetics store for a browse.
Perhaps there’s a beauty product you’ve wanted for a while, like a new eyeshadow palette? Or maybe, you’ve wanted to try out a new brand? Have a look around and treat yourself to an item or two – whatever takes your fancy, treat yourself too.
Get the girls together for coffee
If you haven’t seen your friends in a while, this could be what’s getting you down. Studies have shown that to be happy; we need regular interaction with our friends. So if you’re feeling blue, get on the phone to the girls and organize a meet up pronto.
Two of the best things for beating the blues; chatting with friends and sipping your favorite latte. I don’t know about you, but whenever I’m feeling down, a coffee and a natter with the girls is the perfect remedy. Whether you’re a Starbucks gal or prefer to visit independent coffee houses, a latte is an easy way to put a smile back on your face.
Spoil yourself with a shopping spree
Sometimes, all it takes to boost your mood is a shopping spree at your favorite store. If you’re lacking a smile and love fashion, head to your nearest mall to do some shopping. Hit all your favorite stores, try on whatever you want, and treat yourself to the odd thing or two.
If you don’t fancy hitting the shops, how about doing some online shopping? If you are in need of a new purse, make sure to check out all the Western Purses designs. When you’re feeling down, sometimes a little bit of retail therapy can be all it takes to put a smile back on your face.
Pamper yourself with a spa treatment
If your winter blues are caused by stress, a great way to make yourself feel better is with some pampering. Book yourself into your favorite spa for a relaxing treatment – for stress, head and shoulder massages are fantastic.
You’ll find that after a few hours of relaxing, you’ll feel a hundred times happier. (You might even have a smile back on your face.) For a more enjoyable spa day, consider inviting a couple of friends along to keep you company.
So there you have it, all the best ways to boost your mood and put a smile back on your face.
