Frightful Weather = Fruitful Dwellings!

Christmas time is here and the weather outside is definitely cold and frightful! For me, it's hard to stay indoors without feeling a bit of cabin fever every now and them. Luckily, I've created a list to help you, too heal the homebound blues.
Here are some ideas for breaking your cabin fever:
Light Some Candles Pleasant aromas can help you maintain a peaceful state of mind. I have candles burning in the living room and the bathroom, and like to turn the ceiling fans on low to spread and mix the scents around the house.
Play Some Light Background Music If you have DirecTV, Dish, or any other satellite cable, check to see if your TV has any music stations. If you don't, try digging out some CDs, turning on the radio, or playing internet radio on your computer (Pandora.com & Music.yahoo.com are a couple of my favorites). Music helps set the tone for your day and keeps your energy up. 
Keep a Pen and Paper Handy After you've finished setting the stage for your activities indoors, jot down grocery items that need to be purchased, items to do when you decide to go out, things to do around the house, and any other ideas that pop into your head. Don't sit down and force yourself to write; have the pen & pad ready just in case. Making lists can help you remember important things and prioritize your workload.

Drink Plenty of Fluids Our bodies tend to get dehydrated a lot quicker in the winter. Recently, I've been saving my glass tea bottles from convenience stores and reusing them. I fill the bottles with tap water and keep them inside the fridge, so I always have cold water on hand to wet my whistle. You may also want to pick up some Gatorade, which is filled with lots of healthy electrolytes, to quickly revamp your system when you start to feel fatigued.

Start an Indoor Project Need to wrap some gifts? Do the cupboards need reorganized? Is the bookshelf overflowing? We both know that there's always something to do around the house. If you have some spare time, try to make a 'dent' in one area of your household. Set one goal to accomplish and include the rest of your family if you can. This will help you maintain your living environment and encourage loving relationships in your home!

About Jennifer:

Greetings! I'm Jennifer Buser, professional organizer and healthy living advocate. Most of my friends say I'm a chipper, go-getter kind of gal who gets excited about organizing and wellness. As an organizer, I believe that an enhanced life includes regular physical activity, a balanced diet (especially with lots of fruits and vegetables), and a concentrated emphasis on mental health. I come from a home where my mother's family practiced Quakerism and my father's parents attended a Methodist church. As a child, I was able to learn different fundamental life lessons from each of my grandparents. From my Methodist Grandmother I learned the value of organization and cleanliness. At their home, her husband allowed me to explore nature on their pond and gave me creative freedom in his workshop. My Quaker Grandmother continues to teach me the importance of culture and appreciation, and I credit my Quaker Grandfather with helping me to find my true self during a cross-country trip as a teenager. I chose to become a professional organizer because all these experiences combined in me an attitude of tolerance, exploration, simplicity, and awareness. I enjoy helping people foster their version of an enhanced life by challenging them to stay physically active, maintain their energy with a healthy diet, exercise their state of mind and broaden their perspective.
