Fighting the winter blues.

I don't know about anyone else, but when the dark evenings come round, and the weather is cold and miserable, I seem to lose all sense of motivation and ambition, and want to hibernate until spring. When I get home from work, I want to change into comfy clothes, and not move from the sofa until bed time. And there surely must be a law forbidding everyone getting out of bed for work whilst it's still dark? I think that's the worst. 

Does anyone have any tips on how to get some motivation into everyday life when it's cold and dark outside? What do you do on an evening to occupy yourself, apart from watching the tv? I often think about our evenings in, after working all day, and chances are we're both sat on our laptops, watching some rubbish on the tv until bed time, then repeat. 

Any ideas on how to get a bit more umph back in my life would be most welcome! As they say, the difference between try and triumph is a bit of umph!

  1. Going out to work in the dark and coming home from work in the dark is not inspiring. Been there, done that and at least now I can get up when it's semi light now that we're retired. I liked to get the lights on and tea cooking as soon as possible, shutting out the dark and cosying up in our home.
    Our evenings are spent on hobbies - blogging, crocheting, reading, making and catching up on the day up until about 9 and we only watch about 1 hour of TV a night and that's a recording of programs we choose to watch. It's still a bit 'same-ish' each night but it's relaxing.
