The Mid-Winter Blahs

Posted by: Cindy Spencer Pape
The blahs. Not the blues, exactly. I mean, we all know about lack of sunshine causing drops invitamins C & D, and seasonal effective disorder. But there's something else, something deeper about the dreary days before spring begins. It might be a combination of post holiday let-down and being sick of mud and slush. I suspect it's a litlle different for my friends in the southern hemisphere.

So what do you do to beat the blahs? I do supplement my C &D vitamins, which helps. I've started swimming again at the local pool. For me, being in the water helps take me away from everything related to real life. My daughter-in-law and I have been doing a lot of household rearrangment. She's also fallen in love with bath bombs. I think I've been wearing lipstick more often. None of this has really helped writing wise, but I'm definitely more cheerful, which is a big plus.

As far as the writing goes, I think that's going to have to be a combination of caffiene and sheer determination to get it back on track. Since it's sunny today, maybe I'll just perch in a chair by a window with my laptop and some iced tea or Diet Coke. Whatever works, right?

Meanwhile, all tips and hints would be appreciated in the comments. I promise to pick at least one and give it a try, with follow-up comments!

Happy not-quite spring!
