Tacita, of A Greater Whole (next to Juanita
Village), suggests Vitamin D shots :)
I have never done one, but I''m going to now...yes, the rain is getting to be even too much for this born and bred Seattlite


Love the seat heaters idea. Cracked me up. :)

When it is sunny or even gray but not raining--go outside and get in natural light. Be outside as much as you can.

Stay to normal sleep schedules. Even though you want to cuddle up in blankets as much as possible. :)

That's all I got. ;)

I love your sense of humor. Thanks for posting this :)

Go up to the mountains. Snowshoe at Gold Creek Pond (usually it's packed down enough you can just walk in boots around the pond), cross country ski, downhill ski, snow-tube. Often, it's gloomy down here, and brighter, if not down-right sunny at the Pass.

Bring flowers inside. Tulips say "spring".

visit the Volunteer Park Conservatory - warm, humid, fragrant, beautiful. https://volunteerparkconservatory.org/

All good suggestions!
Grab a friend or relative and go out for a walk! That weather app that you deleted might say 100% chance of rain, but it rarely rains all day, and if it does, take an umbrella! Walk the neighborhood (hills are a bonus), or walk the Cross Kirkland Corridor. Being outside in the fresh air and natural light does wonders. Social time helps, too. You'll bring a warm glow back inside with you.
Yes, get your Vitamin D tested and take a supplement if needed (they're cheap).

My therapist says half-smiling and willing hands while thinking about what feels unacceptable helps, it releases endorphins and serotonin.

Here is the article to look at:

Plan lots of get togethers with friends - happy hours, cocktails only etc. It makes me so happy when I plan them & to have something to look forward to.

I saw someone's FB post on a summer berry/lavender champagne drink...  why wait till summer, make it now!

ZUMBA, baby!!!
