My Top 5 Tips to Beat The Winter Blues

Winter is not my favorite time of year. Lets be honest it is freezing all the time (and for someone with anemia like myself I am an icicle). The snow and ice is the biggest inconvenience. You have to wear layers and layers of clothes, and people don't want to leave their homes. I don't mind the cold as much since I have moved south but I am the happiest ever to not have to deal with the feet of snow back up north. While some enjoy this time many develop a Seasonal Affective Disorder, commonly known as the winter blues. People typically begin to feel fatigue, depression, hopelessness, and social withdrawal during this time. Although all types of depression is serious this one can usually be treated by making a few changes in your surroundings. Below I have listed my top 5 ways to beat the winter blues.

The Top 6 Misconceptions of Plus Size Women

Have you ever had a conversation with someone and shared things you have done or wore and they seemed surprised. Although we live normal lives, there are some people that believe our lives are anything but like theirs. I have complied the top 6 misconceptions of plus size women. Can you relate????

#1 Plus size women are lazy....

Most plus size women are not lazy. We enjoy getting out of the house and doing activities. Just because we are overweight does not mean we sit on the couch all day.

#2 Plus size women are totally unhealthy and near death lol

While I do understand some risk factors with our health, not all plus size women are having health issues. It is very possible to be over 200 pounds and still live a healthy lifestyle.

Top 5 Reasons Why All You Need Is Yourself

We live in a world where everyone is seeking someone's approval. We grow up pleasing our parents and wanting to do things that makes them proud of us. That then moves on to being recognized by your employer. Our friends hold a great weight in guiding us to make the best choices collectively. And lets not forget with the rise in social media we seek greatness from people we don't even know. But, why is that? Why do we often find ourselves torn between who we want to be and who they may want us to be.

I wanted to share the top 5 tips on what you can do to embrace and be yourself regardless of what others think...

1. Welcome suggestions, criticism, and opinions BUT only use them as tools not as your decisions. Lets be honest we all need a little guidance sometimes but let it be guidance not your final decision.

2. If you want to discuss a topic with someone that you already know doesn't agree with it... DON'T! Talking to someone about something when you already know there stance on it is pointless. This just lets to discussions or arguments with no resolution so don't waste your time.
