Movie Review: "Deadpool 2" is a Garrulous, Charismatic Sequel
There’s a sense of closure that permeates as the air develops a chill to it and the leaves begin to color on the trees. The feeling that something is coming to an end often invokes a general air of melancholy, introspectiveness and perhaps even sadness. But the cold does not equate to despair. Instead of letting winter get you down, approach it the same way that you would in the lead up to spring – with optimism, hope and a willingness to change for the better.
Aiming for that bikini body in spring? Why not carry on the gym routine through the winter? Below we’ll discuss a number of ways to remake yourself for winter.
If the seasons can change their colors, why can’t you? Winter is the perfect season for taking a risk, throwing caution to the wind and trying out something completely new. If you’ve got black hair, why not go red? If you’re a brunette, get the techniques and dye your hair blonde. Instead of letting yourself get dragged down by the cold, emerge resplendent with a new radiant hair color to go with some new clothes. Speaking of which…
Work Towards Your Best Self: These IG Accounts Will Help You Get Into Shape
While it might be tempting to put on the same coat from last year along with the two or three pairs of jeans you always wear, resist the urge to be bogged down by a winter uniform. Instead, invest in some varied colors. Patterned scarves, bright beanies and a statement coat, these are all your friends and will make your outfits stand out especially with the gray and bleary streets of winter as a backdrop.
Rather than simply crawling back to your apartment after work to huddle in bed and binge the latest series on Netflix, seek out a new, meaningful pastime. Summer isn’t the only time of year for activities, and just because it’s cold, that doesn’t give you the excuse to be lazy. Ever wanted to learn a new language or develop a new skill? Now’s the time to invest in yourself. Websites such as meetup.com are great to discover hobby groups and to meet like-minded people with similar interests.
You put in the work during spring and now your body is starting to look good – this doesn’t mean you should stop in winter. Sure, it might be harder to get out of bed in the morning but that’s no reason not to get to the gym or to skip your morning run. In fact, maintaining a daily regimen of exercise is not only going help to you maintain your godly figure (if that’s where you’re currently at), it’s going to release a number of endorphins to keep you happy when the sun doesn’t poke its head out from behind the clouds for three weeks at a time. This is going to help you stay positive during your transformation. Seriously, keep exercising.
