Projects To Lift Your Cold, Winter Spirit

Do you sometimes need your spirit lifted? During this grey, cold, dark time of year many people with no history of depression suffer occasional bouts of the ‘blues.’

If this is you, I may have some projects that will help. They are for you to do, without being about you (you’ll see what I mean).

In the summer, even when it’s raining and cold (which it mostly is in England) the blue skies give me the impression of a broad, open space, with the freedom to extend my arms wide. The winter brings low, grey clouds which compress that space, and imprison me in a smaller and tighter world. I need constant lifts to my spirit to give my freedom wings to explore and soar.

Winter is certainly not the only time I aim to live a good life. However, it’s the time I feel I have to do more inner work to keep my happiness and contentment topped up. This is where my projects (here) come in. If you’re not a Christian (or any kind of believer), they are also designed for you. Try them for a lift during these grey, winter months.

Anne, you are so right. "Happiness is a choice" and we must make active decisions to remain happy and motivated. Thanks for the tips.

Take care & God bless!
