My daughter is begging for a free day from school.
The warm, soft bed is hard to leave.
I feel same way. Like a bear that wants the spend winter in the bed.
Because here in Denmark, November and December are dark darker darkest.
It’s easy to indulge in gloom.
What can I do to cope with the dark and cold? And a Monday?
I found a brilliant solution: I put on my hottest hat and red lipstick.
The gray Monday became a celebration.
If you truly want to be happy during winter, or on Monday all you have to do is to change your mindset.
The hot hat and red lipstick will help.
They will boost your mood. And the mood of people you meet.
Smile. Give hugs.
Play uplifting music in the mornings.
Drink herb tea and hot chocolate.
It tastes absolute divine on winters and Mondays.
Small things, huge impact.
PS. The hat is made in Iceland, 100 % pure wool from some pretty happy sheep. No one has been hurt under the process.
