With temperatures still below zero where I live, fighting those winter blues can sometimes feel like an uphill battle. Writing is my therapy, hot tea is my medicine, and sleep can be an escape. But this year, since one of my resolutions is to work out more, I have decided to use yoga as not only a way to stay fit, but also an activity to fight my winter blues.
The workout helps me physically, but the meditation helps my mentality. During the winter, with the lack of sunlight, it can be difficult for me to have a positive outlook. But doing yoga almost every day has helped me learn how to think positively. Throughout my day, I have realized that if I go with the flow and just forget the negativity, life becomes so much easier.
If you live somewhere with harsh, cold winters, how do you cope with the winter blues?
