Time Change Blues
…what does it do to you?
Most people would agree that once the time changes and we start seeing darkness fall earlier, we get more lethargic. Our work suffers. Sometimes it causes physical problems and can affect mood and depression as well. We want to hibernate in our homes and crawl into bed early. It’s pretty natural. You see darkness, you think bedtime.
What does this mean for you? Do you want to crawl in bed or crawl under your house? Clean out the attic maybe or move your furniture. Some people find a great deal of projects around the house to keep them busy and sane during this first month or so of pre-winter. Closets are a great place to start. Another project could be interior painting. Give your house a fresh look inside and keep yourself busy. Clean out your sock drawers and go through old clothes you don’t wear. Take a load or two to the Goodwill or Salvation Army and get your receipts for a tax deduction in January, but mostly, drop off something that you won’t use that someone else might. It’s that time of year to start thinking of goodwill towards men and the needy who might just want that old coat you never wear.
Another good idea is to check your smoke detectors. They say to do this twice a year as the time changes. Clean our your bathroom, get rid of old lotions and cosmetics that have been around forever. Revamp your kitchen by deep cleaning the oven and under the sink.
This time of year doesn’t have to get you down. Instead, get down to business on a new home interior project, whatever the size. It will make you feel much better to stay busy!
