"Defeat the Winter Doldrums" for some of us we get the doldrums and others don't. For the ones who get doldrums what helps you get rid of them? For the ones who don't get the doldrums, what helps you keep them away?
I don't think I associate the Doldrums with winter... we don't have much of a winter here. I sure do wish we would get some snow on a regular basis, at least once a year would be good. :) Anyway... I do get the doldrums or get down in the dumps every now & then. I think everyone deserves a good sulk sometimes. ;) Usually when I get that way I don't feel like knitting or crocheting or doing any of my crafty pursuits... a good way to pull out of that is to read a good book (love Nora Roberts & JD Robb books!), watch some good chick flicks on DVD (usually a good crying movie with a box of tissues is good for the soul), curl up on the sofa in my afghan while doing these things.... eat some gummies or Snickers or some good buttery popcorn while doing these things.... by the time I'm finished with my book or movies I'm in a better mood & ready to get back to my crafts.
