Suffering from winter blues?

The glow of the holidays is beginning to wear off. Its dark. It's cold. You can't stop sneezing and a not-so-sexy bruise is forming from when you ate pavement yesterday (thank you ice). I feel you. But instead of fantasizing that you are on a beach somewhere exotic (drinking margaritas with someone even more exotic!), I challenge you perk up, bundle up, and enjoy some of the simple magical pleasures of winter. Why not...

Build a fire - Go ice skating - Spend a Saturday in bed - Paint your nails a wintery color - Dive into a novel you've been meaning to read - Drink tea - Make a snowman - Get to work an hour late and blame it on the snow - Plan a trip to the spa and sit in the sauna - Take a road trip with friends - Cuddle with someone you love - Light yummy scented candles - Learn to knit - Take a hot yoga class - Call your grandparents/other relatives who love hearing from you - Wear your Uggs out on the town (this will likely horrify some of my girlfriends, but I'm listing it anyway!) - Start a craft project - Make someone's day - Bake something (or intend to bake and just eat all the batter...) - Send snail mail to close friends telling them how much they mean to you - Clean out your closet - Volunteer at a soup kitchen - Plan your next vacation - Watch old movies - Enjoy yourself...
