Combat the Winter Blahs with Comforting Aaahhhs

Stay CozyWinter brings shorter days and cold weather that gives you the sniffles and cabin fever. One of the easiest ways to combat the winter blahs is to transform your house into a warm and cozy haven!

Here are a few ideas to help you get started:

Let in the light!

Sunlight is the best defense against winter weather gloom. Make sure that your light fixtures are dusted and your bulbs are the correct wattage. Clean your windows to take full advantage of natural lighting and the warmth that comes with it. Call your local remodeling company to see about adding interior windows to rooms that don’t get enough sunlight.

Ward off the sniffles

Cold and flu season usually go hand-in-hand with cold weather so it’s important to do all you can to ward off sickness. Vacuum often and change your air filters monthly. Indoor plants help clear the air, too! Pothos plants are easy to take care of inside, look great and help suck up VOCs. Still feeling dusty? Call your HVAC company to see whether cleaning your air ducts is a good idea.

Stay warm

Make sure that you seal any possible air leaks in your house and make sure the weather stripping around your doors and windows is intact. The insulation in your house prevents the cold weather from seeping in.  Don’t forget that your attic isn’t the only place for insulation – your walls need it too. This will help your heating unit warm your house without taxing the system and hiking your energy bill.

Set the mood

Warm colors like oranges and reds help chase away sullen winter moods. Scents also help brighten your mood. A fresh citrus scent or minty eucalyptus is always good for a pick-me-up and can help you breathe easier, too!
