Tips To Beat The Winter Blues
Blue Monday – the 3rd Monday of every January – is considered to be one of the most depressing days of the years. With it behind us, we thought we’d share our favorite ways to beat the winter blues and stay cheery during the dark, cold GTA winters.
Exercise seems to be the answer to a lot of ailments, but when it comes to feeling blue in the winter, getting up and active is one of the easiest ways to turn your mood around! Exercise releases endorphins which trigger a positive feeling in your body. Regular exercise has been proven to reduce stress, boost self-esteem and improve sleep – all good things when trying to beat the winter blues!
Listen to Upbeat Music
Music has a big impact on our moods. A recent study found that people who listened to upbeat music could improve their moods and boost their happiness2. Ditch the melancholy music for the rest of the winter season and choose something with a fast beat and positive lyrics instead!
Invest in Your Air Quality
There’s nothing like cracking open the window and getting some fresh air in your home – it always seems to perk everyone up. This time of year, it’s impractical to open windows and let out the warm air our furnaces work so hard to generate, so instead we batten everything down to keep warm air in.
If you don’t have a good air filtration system, the same recycled air is being circulated throughout your home without being treated. The only way to ensure that the air you are breathing is clean is to install an air treatment or filtration system.
However you get through the winter, trust Martino HVAC for all your home comfort needs. We have been the GTA and Quinte Region’s most trusted home comfort provider for 30 years.
