How To Stay Positive During The Winter – Part Two

3. Vitamin D supplements.

A new one for me.

This winter I have started taking Vitamin D supplements each day and I have found it to give me a lot of the energy I tend to lose during a long winter back. A few people close to me are also taking it and are reporting similar positive effects in varying degrees.

Considering how easy, inexpensive and most importantly effective this one is for me personally I plan to continue to use it during the coming winters too.

4. Exercise.

An obvious but a very effective one.

Regular exercise will give you more energy. It will help you to release inner tensions, anxiety and stress. And so it will be easier to stay relaxed, positive and to think clearly with less overthinking and to act decisively.

This winter I have been consistently working out every other day. One good habit that I’ve used since the fall to keep the consistency up is to record each workout with a quick note or two in my RunKeeper app on my smart phone.

By doing so I find that I’m less likely forget about the exercise and as I can see how I’m progressing I’m more motivated to stick with it.

5. Take action and move forward.

Few things create so much frustration, worries and anxiety as sitting on your hands and doing nothing.

So even though it might be a little extra tough to get started or to keep going with your dreams and goals during this season remind yourself that if you do you will replace those feelings and thoughts above with optimism and self-confidence.

And remember that you do not have to go forward in big or quick leaps.

The most important thing is simply that you move forward. Even if it is by just taking one small or slow step after another.

Because those steps will quickly add up over the weeks even if they may not look so impressive in themselves.
