So I recently read this article that said “social exclusion literally feels cold”. Let’s say for example, you have the chance to hibernate or go out with friends. Pick go out with friends or invite them over and enact a scene from Cougar Town. Well, just the wine in the giant glass part. If you are lucky enough to have a friend with a warm, toasty fireplace, hope they invite you over to ponder random questions of the universe. Another thing you can do to stay warm is snuggle. Snuggling helps release that feel-good hormone, oxytocin. My husband decided to take it one step further lately. If I sound stressed he says stuff like “Don’t make me come in there and kiss you.” Yes, I know. You want to gag now. Go for it.
Moving on, a hot beverage always makes me feel better and perhaps umm pinning some stuff on Pinterest too. While sipping said beverage. Okay, and I microwave this warm heated thingy and put it behind me while sitting on the couch. Don’t tell anyone…it makes me sound like I’m almost 40 or something. Yikes. You can always make a nice crock-pot full of veggie soup or just eat some Wasabi. Whew. That always warms me right up. Anyway, I missed my own motivational post this week (not because I wasn’t motivated, but due to being sick). So hopefully this will motivate you to snuggle or have friends over. Or snuggle with friends. Whatever floats your boat. Be back with regular posts as soon as I can.
