Of No More (or at least fewer) Winter Blues

Last Saturday I went to a stake activity where our stake president and his wife were the featured speakers. I was only able to stay for the wife's talk because we had to be somewhere in the afternoon, but her talk was excellent. She shared with us a list of eight things to battle the winter blues. She said to only do a couple of them a day (obviously you can do more if you want, but the list was not meant to be another overwhelming "task list.") Anyway, the list is as follows:

1. Laugh each day (or at least smile!)
2. Develop intellectual curiosity
3. Get adequate sleep (sleep when your kids do!)
4. Exercise enough to sweat
5. Feed your body with healthy foods. Feed your spirit with good music and good books.
6. Count your blessings
7. Offer a prayer with real intent
8. Find something you were meant to do
