Want to shake the winter blues? I have a simple trick that works every time.
Pick up the phone and call a friend! Yep, it's really that easy. Especially for empty-nesters, it is vital to maintain that human contact. Just a few minutes chatting with a friend will chase the blues away, re-energize your spirit, and actually lower your blood pressure.
Now think of those benefits doubled. How you ask? Well, if it does all that for you...don't you think that it does the same for them? It's a surefire way to spread joy and sunshine.
Pick up the phone today and call a friend. Smile and it will come through in your voice. You'll see it's not quite as gray outside.
P.S. A piece of chocolate never hurts either!!
