This rainy weather is making me realize that the end of our beautiful, sunny, summer weather will be coming to an end before we know it. It's so easy to find ourselves in a funk, when the weather turns dismal and this can have such an impact on our mood and daily life.
So, what can you do to avoid getting into this rut? Well, if you've been reading my weekly posts and trying to follow my suggestions; you're already eating (somewhat!) healthy and getting active a few times (at least!) a week...this is actually half the battle, when trying to combat dark moods.
Another way to lift your spirits to to try a little positive thought! Most people, when they hear about daily affirmations, think new age, hippie nonsense...if you're one of those people, have a little faith in the power of your own mind and open up to the idea!
It's first important to acknowledge that you have fallen into one of these moods and give yourself time to examen where it came from (for me lately, it's been the lack of sleep, combined with pregnancy hormones!).
What I'm suggestion is that we can actually change our own way of thinking and maybe even influence others in the process.
