5 Ways to Deal with Winter Blues



When the clock strikes 5 in the evening, with everything getting darker in our surroundings, many of us start feeling gloomy. The reasons are the short days and long nights. This specifically happens to the people who like daylight more than the dead of night. If they do not get enough sunlight, their mood has a drastic shift. Some may take it as depression and some take is sadness. In reality, it is just cold and dark weather that makes our mood swing. 

Now that we all are aware of the term “Winter Blues”, it is important to address it and make the most out of this frosty fun weather. Winters should be cherished in the most beautiful way. Considering global warming, we only get hardly 1.5 months to have this cozy and cool weather and the best way is to go against the will in feeling better in those comfy sweaters, hot chocolate, and long boots. 

We will certainly not advise you in medical jargon, in fact, we are suggesting 5 energy booster ways to keep you cheery and glowing while keeping if comfortable for you. 


Going against your mood and getting ready for even the smallest events will give you immense positivity and energy. Winters are full of fancy clothes and quirky boots. So, if you love getting dressed up, use this time to show the best of your version with makeup and clothes on fleak. 


When we say a trip, only a foreign trip comes to your mind or merely a change of place. No, we are talking about a trip to freezing north. We all know that when we are traveling, there is no such thing as taking rest or staying in bed. Going on these trips can help you enjoy even the coldest temperature and it will make you realize how beautiful is the snowy weather all over the world. 


There is no better thing in the world than working on oneself. Exercising is a great energy booster as not only it gives you a great body but it also whips up your self-love. Take at least 30 minutes out for gym, walk or running and see the difference. 


Spend time with your family while you still can. This is the most underestimated power. We forget the importance of quality family time. It makes you fearless, independent and confident. If you spend a few minutes talking to your family, it gives you a sense of belonging, it changes your mood and prepares you for a better day ahead. 


Sometimes we feel lethargic and sad due to lack of motivation and energy. End your day or your evening with a cup of hot chocolate and nuts. And if you are on a diet, you can replace hot chocolate with a cup of green tea or black coffee. This makes your day better and gives you the required stamina to process without feeling dead.

Canadian Pakistani CEO and motivational speaker Muneeb Mushtaq has given us many insightful and empowering thoughts over the years on the basis of his experiences as a young and dynamic businessman. The tech tycoon has been the founder of three tech business ventures and has managed to achieve so much at such a young age. And, he has given back his learning and knowledge by motivating, educating, and mentoring people to be successful in life.

Here are some motivational thoughts by the Forbes awarded entrepreneur Muneeb Mushtaq to get you motivated and beat the Monday blues:


  1. Get rid of the useless and negative clutter in your life


Muneeb Mushtaq suggests that it is important to subtract some of the unnecessary things from life to realise how insignificant they are. He advises us to get away from the insignificant and negative clutter in order to see an immediate positive impact. Worrying about what others think of us, trying to please everyone are some of the unimportant things we need to remove as soon as possible. According to him “When you remove what’s negative, it’ll add more space for what’s POSITIVE”!


  1. Don’t wait, just take the first step


The successful entrepreneur recommends us not to wait for other people or for the perfect moment to do what you have always wanted to do. There will never be a perfect time, situation or circumstances that would make you start working on your dreams. He advises us to just take the first step and get started.


  1. Failure is the opportunity to start over again, more wisely


The dynamic businessman is also of the view that failure provides an invaluable experience that makes it more likely to get success the next time around. He explains: “Till the time you don’t give up, the failures are just learning experiences, helping you to eventually succeed.”


  1. Respect the competition


Muneeb Mushtaq also shares this motivational thought that competition should be embraced and should be used as a driving force to push you further rather than fearing it. Competition is also a validation that there is a massive market and opportunity in the space to grow further.


  1. Change is important

Another motivating thought from Muneeb Mushtaq is that if you want change in life, then you should also be willing to change. He says, “If you are not willing to change, don’t expect your life to either”.
