Welp Its winter!
I really cant stand winter. Yes I know I ran a race in the winter but still, its cold. The commute to school is awful, people don’t know how to drive and I am so pale that I think I might just be a ghost!
Lately I haven’t been able to snap out of this depressive/down on my self mood lately and I don’t know why. Yes I suffer from Depression and Generalized Anxiety Disorder (I also take medication for it) but I haven’t felt this down in a while. What gives? I really shouldn’t be feeling down because I have a lot of things going for me. I have a roof over my head, clothes, food, and a family to come home to every night. Yet I still feel empty.
Maybe its the stress of midterms? Commuting to school everyday? Not being able to run? I don’t know.
I dont want to make this post any more depressing so I am going to try to give you some tips to help you cure the winter blues! (I should take these into consideration too)
1. Hit the Gym
I love getting the exercise endorphins after a great workout!
2. Find a great playlist that keeps you moving!
I am currently in love with these bands: Minus the Bear, Local Natives, and Santigold.
3. Spring is less than two months away!
(I know we have had a mild winter but still its winter haha)
4. Spring weather means I can run outside with less layers! (I cant wait to run when the weather is ideal to wear shorts and a t-shirt)
5. Drop the Bass
Listen to some crazy techno music and dance! Even Edgar Allen Poe approves of it. (I really could not stand his poetry growing up as a kid in middle school. His allegories scared the sh** out of me)
Those are all of the tips I have right now. Haha
Also on Tuesday I ran/walked for 30 minutes on the treadmill! NO CALF PAIN!
2.5 min walk=4.0
2.5 min run= 6.0 (I kept the speed lower than my normal speed which is 6.3 because I did not want to irritate my calf)
(Take that calf sprain)
What do you do to cure the winter blues?
Also bloggers that I follow and read regularly: I am sorry that I have not been commenting on your blog posts! I love you all but I have been bombarded with midterms and haven’t been able to have a chance to comment on them due to school.
