If the short, cold days of winter are making you feel blue, there are a few things you can do to your environment to cheer yourself up a bit.
Clean the air with a Himalayan rock salt lamp. They give a soft glow and help filter the dust and dirt out of the air.
Find an essential oil diffuser that’s also a humidifier. It can help you relax with moist, aromatic air.
Use scented candles. They’re easy, soothing and you can choose scents that will boost your mood.
Carry around a comfort object. Make it something small, like a rock or stuffed animal; when you’re stressed or depressed, use it to refocus your mind.
Use houseplants to purify the air. Plants can perk up your mood and help the humidity in the room.
Use a corn bag. These are microwavable bags that act as heating pads and can relieve sore muscles.
