Winter is a wonderful time to reset and recharge, going inward and taking stock of our possessions, relationships, and habits. When we accept this as a time of slowness and introspection, it's easy to relate to and understand why animals hibernate! At the same time, we sometimes start feeling a little stir crazy in the midst of all that contemplation. Here are some ideas to combat Cabin Fever!
Even if you don't live in a Winter Wonderland where you can snowball fight or ice skate, bundling up and enjoying nature still takes some effort in this colder season. We benefit even more, now, from getting a bit of sun on our faces and breathing in some fresh air.
IDEA: Take advantage of the lack of leaves and look for interesting bird nests in the trees!
Everything is more fun with a friend, and we adore using this time of year to have a friend over to share in indoor activities, making what could seem mundane into something magical! It's a great time to cook together, play a game, or work on a new craft project. There's something wonderful about sharing energy and conversation even if you are working on different things, so see if your friend has a project they want to do that they've been putting off and pull out one of yours.
IDEA: Mending clothing is something that so many of us intend to do but find it hard to get around to. Doing it in the company of a friend makes it way more enjoyable!
Cold weather outside makes us want to nest and get cozy, so embrace those hygge vibes! Read a book or do a puzzle by the fireplace, build a blanket fort, or create a fresh energy in your home with new lighting or by smoke cleansing with sage.
IDEA: Change the mood of your space by switching up the colors of the lightbulbs in your favorite lamps!
Once you've done all of the above, if you're still craving new energy, come visit us at a Mexicali Blues store! Inspired by the opulent markets and bazaars we've traversed on our travels, we aim to make each of our stores a vibrant and exotic adventure to explore, allowing you to travel through a fresh environment of inspiring smells, sounds, and textures without the price of a plane ticket!
