Everyone has ideas about how to keep warm and healthy during Winter, such as wearing layered clothing and drinking hot soups. But what other warming-ways are there to help you stay cosy and well?
Beat the Winter-blues.
Staying indoors during winter can lead to feelings of social exclusion, which in turn make you feel colder. Also going to and from work in darkness can trap you into gloomy thinking.
– Free yourself from the Winter-blues. Sing! A small bird was mistakenly shut inside a linen cupboard. It started to sing in the dark. As a result, it was found and set free.
– Keep the cold at bay. Fill your thinking with the sunlight of heart-warming, happy thoughts.
– Boost your mood. “Turn up” your warmth factor. Get out and about. Spend time interacting with others.
– Melt cold thoughts. Kindle an inner glow. Ignite the spark of warmth in your heart. Radiate goodness through acts of kindness. Fan heartfelt feelings for others, until they warm the cockles of your heart.
EXPECT TO STAY HEALTHY
When Winter arrives, so too does the fear of catching sickness. One way to antidote this unhealthy mental state, is to warm up your thinking with positive, spiritual, healthful ideas.
– “Hold thought steadfastly to the enduring, the good, and the true, and you will bring these into your experience proportionably to their occupancy of your thoughts.” – Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health, p. 261:4
– Keep the fear of sickness out of thought. Expect to stay well. Look at the birds. They sing and soar freely all year round. No tissues or cough drops for them.
– Anticipate “catching good health”. A little girl went next door to play with her friend Sally. She was told that Sally was sick. They couldn’t play together as she might catch the illness. On returning home, the girl said, “Mummy, I don’t understand. Why would I catch Sally’s sickness? Why couldn’t Sally catch my good health!”
– Be confident of maintaining good health. Bolster your mental stance with the health-preserving ideas included in the 91st Psalm. They’re good for your health.
