It’s the start of winter here in New Zealand. We often hear about ‘seasonal affective disorder’ (SAD) or seasonal depression. When it is cold, one might laze and lay in bed longer, wake up a bit later but you have to tough out on your own. Take steps to keep your mood and motivation steady throughout the year.
I cannot deny that the weather does affect my mood but knowing that it does, I am not going to let it overwhelmed me or get me down. I enjoy doing activities during weekends, rain or shine, cold or warm. Even in winter on sunny days, I take every opportunity to be outdoor wearing my Kathmandu to keep warm. We were adventurous enough to BBQ yesterday (Saturday) at Cornwall Park. Today (Sunday) we had what we called a ‘classy’ high tea and all dressed up to beat the winter blues.
Fight your winter blues, there are lots of activities that can be enjoyed indoors and many cool ways to beat the “winter blues”. We cannot control the weather but we can control our moods. We can still smile and go on doing our daily activities and enjoy our days.
The idea that the weather and people’s moods are connected is quite old. Do you agree? If yes, how does the weather affect your mood?

I was reading Bunny Eats Design today and saw her interesting post on ‘Our Growing Age’.
Our Growing Edge is the part of us that is still learning and experimenting. It’s the part that you regularly grow and improve, be it from real passion or a conscious effort. This monthly event aims to connect and inspire us to try new things and to compile a monthly snapshot of what food bloggers are getting up to.
Sharing this post of mine on our home hosted high tea as a contribution to ‘Our Growing Age’.
