Beating the Winter Blues
Winter is coming! Which sounds great at first, but after three days of sniffling, sneezing and not being able to feel your fingers, it gets old. This time of year really gets some people down in the dumps. Sure the holidays are great, but buying presents, filing your taxes and studying for finals can really get some people feeling a little stressed out. So here is a few ways to beat the winter blues.
Get a good laugh. Watch a funny movie. Comedies can put anyone in a good mood. Don’t have the money to go to the movies? Go to Redbox! They are everywhere now and it only costs a dollar to rent a movie for one night, which is all you really need it for. If you don’t feel like spending ANY money, even a dollar, go to www.hulu.com. The site has tons of free movies to choose from.
Laugh some more. Go to a funny website. www.theoatmeal.com has oodles of funny comics to read that will literally make you laugh out loud. You can also go to www.peopleofwalmart.com. The things people wear and do in public is amazing, but when it is on camera it is even better!
Help someone in need. There is no better gratification than helping someone. Anyone can volunteer with the FCU Team at any community event. To check out volunteer event, click the upcoming events tab above or go to www.govolunteertoday.org.
