Winter is the time of year that everyone wants to batten down the hatches and stay indoors, and I don’t blame you because there is certainly a chill in the air. But, having said that, being inside and not indulging your more usual active lifestyle can mean that you start to feel lethargic, low on energy and perhaps a little down and out about yourself. But it doesn’t haven’t be this way. I thought I would share with you some of the ways you can overhaul your life this winter and feel fabulous.
Change your appearance
One of the first things you could consider doing is changing your appearance. It doesn’t mean to be drastic, no one is suggesting you change your look entirely, but it can make a big difference to your confidence simply by changing your hairstyle or color. A visit to a hair salon can also feel like the ultimate treat. Time to relax and let someone work their magic on your look. You could also consider trying out new makeup techniques, if you like to wear it. YouTube is full of tutorials on how to create the best contour look or smoky eye effect.
Step out of your comfort zone with style
It is easy to get stuck in a rut when it comes to what we wear. So you may want to try and step out of your comfort zone every once in a while. It can be a huge boost to your confidence levels. It might be that you love a particular colour but don’t have the confidence to wear it in clothes, or maybe you love dresses or skirts but just don’t feel like they suit you. Just try and see the difference it could make to your overall look. It could inspire you to make further changes. Winter doesn’t mean you have to stay wrapped up, dresses look great with tights and boots and jeans can still be worn with style. Look online for some winter fashion inspiration.
You can still indulge a healthy diet
Winter often means we are more tempted by carbohydrates and comfort food, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t be healthy. There are some great recipients ideas out there now that will have your mouth watering. Vegetable bakes, creamy risottos filled with goodness and healthy pasta dishes. All full of good food. It is easy to fall off the wagon in winter, but if you are creative you can still feel good thanks to the food that you consume.
Exercise can still happen in winter
Finally, exercise may be the last thing on your mind thanks to the colder weather, but actually, you can still indulge in being active on a cold day. A brisk walk wrapped up warm, or even join a gym to try out new exercise classes can be just the way you remain active on those colder days of the year.
I hope that this has you motivated to overhaul your life this winter.
