I hope no one is in the January doldrums (хандрит) or suffering from the winter blues (страдает от зимней депрессии)!
.
If there are any among my subscribers, let’s gather ideas how to beat the winter blues (побороть зимнюю депрессию) and alleviate the January doldrums (облегчить январскую хандру)!
.
❄️Get out and about!
🔹plan a small party;
🔹go to the movies;
🔹schedule coffees or lunches with friends;
🔹try a new restaurant;
🔹escape for a day or an overnighter with the family or a friend...
.
❄️Pamper yourself! (Побалуйте себя!)
🔹take a salt bath;
🔹go to the local salon or spa;
🔹make face masks;
🔹watch a good movie;
🔹invite friends, your mom, sister, brother ... to your place …
.
❄️Some of these ideas cost money, if the holidays left you tight on cash:
🔹check your local library for free classes;
🔹museums for free passes;
🔹there are lots of free family shows …
