It is a truly fabulous Friday here in Winnipeg. The weather is mild and the sun is BRIGHT. I have the day off and after running a few errands and cleaning a few things around the house I am working on some Drakestail business and enjoying some cuddle time with my dogs. I’m feeling really great about today however, that is a very rare occurrence for me in the winter months. I usually struggle through each day feeling slow and low due to lack of sunshine in the sky. Even with daily extra vitamin D and spending time outdoors daily and a blue light at my desk I still have a rough go from mid-November through til March normally.
One thing I try to do when I am feeling particularly rough is to queue up 4 or 5 stellar dancing songs and let loose in my house. Sometimes I just gotta shake what my mama gave me! The cat usually stares at me like I’ve lost it and the dogs follow me around, tails wagging, grins on their faces not really sure what’s happening, but playing along nonetheless. I give myself 20 to 30 minutes of uninterrupted, cut loose, rip up the floor nonsensical dancing. No matter how rough I felt before, that always puts a smile on my face. It gets my blood pumping and gives me a burst of energy. It also often has the bonus side effect of stirring some creativity in me. Which is great because when I am feeling slow and low creativity is often nowhere to be found.
So… what are some of your favourite, go to, feel good songs? The ones you cannot help but sing along to, cannot help but shake it a little when they come on the radio, I want to know! I hope you all have a fab Friday and if the weather isn’t being as good to you wherever you are, try my shake it trick. I am sure it’ll help!
