I just went out and bought all the twinkle lights I could find! No, I’m not stocking up for next year’s holiday decorations. I’m preparing myself for the dark cold winter that lies ahead.

As moms, we know that with the dreariness of winter’s days, the less happy we can become. A certain grey dullness can overshadow the joys of our everyday life. Even our little ones can exude a bit more crankiness this time of year. There are certain triggers, compiled over several weeks, which can bring about the gloom.

Yet there are also some proactive choices we can make to help keep our happy even through the winter months.

Start a Gratitude Journal

This is a lovely time of year to start a gratitude journal. Simply record five things every week that you are grateful for. Or one thing each day. That’s it! Nothing special is needed. You can journal electronically or on paper. Elaborate on the people and experiences that you are grateful for. This is also a great activity to get your kids involved in too. After all, don’t we have much to be grateful for? What a beautiful way to keep the happy in your home during the winter.
