Don’t get me wrong, I am quite thankful for the unseasonably warm winter we are having. I am told that its quite similar to Vancouver temps. If this is true, I have never been, Vancouver’s stock just went up. But despite the warm weather, I am still having trouble with the blahs. I still have no desire to leave the warm comfort of my bed and I still don’t want to do anything. Its a battle sometimes, and this winter has supported my view that I am solar powered.
Today the sun got up before 8:00 am and it was light before we left to take Tweedle D to school, for that I am grateful, but its still a tiny dot inching its way across the sky casting a slightly soft blue light. I like blue, its one of my favourite colours and I suppose if I had a camera I would appreciate it more. In the right dose it can be calming. But blue is cool, if not cold casting a lethargic moody light when exposed to for months on end.
Right now its almost 10:30 am and I do see some yellows. Thats encouraging and I like yellow. Its cheery and warm. The yellow is still so soft but its just enough to give me hope that spring is going to come.
But I know the truth. Spring really doesn’t come until May and usually the end of May.
In the mean time I have some full spectrum bulbs, but they don’t seem to be helping. I plan on taking some vitamin B and getting out as much as possible despite my inclination to remain under my luxurious duvet.
Yesterday was particularly bad. Lets just say thank goodness for my running class. Even though exercise is the complete opposite of what my body is wanting to do, it really is the best thing for it right now. That and a little chocolate.
Do you have any blues? What are you doing to “battle” them?
