Seasonal blues is a common occurrence amongst Kiwis as we bed further into the winter. With frosty mornings, early sunsets, and grey days, it is no wonder that many of us tend to feel down during the winter. However, the winter doesn’t have to be all gloomy. There are things you can do to help snuggle up, enjoy the cosy atmosphere, and push past the blues. 

We have put together a list of 6 things you can shop for that will help make winter that little bit more enjoyable, so that you aren’t just counting down until summer. 

1. A Kindle

On gloomy winter nights, a kindle makes it easy to snuggle up on the couch or in bed, light a couple of candles, brew a steamy tea or a hot chocolate, and dive into an adventure. Reading is a great therapeutic activity that can help calm you down, ready your mind and body for sleep, and of course, be a great source of entertainment – perfect for combating winter blues.

2. A New TV

If your current TV is getting a little old and tired, you may want to consider upgrading to a new one. A shining, new TV will transform your entertainment suite, facilitating an immersive experience with bold colours and clarity, so you can enjoy streaming and gaming this winter. There is nothing like cozying up on winter Sundays to watch your favourite on a flash new TV to fight off winter blues.

3. Fitness Equipment

It may be too cold to get outside, but that doesn’t mean you should skip regular exercise. Moving your body on the regular will keep endorphins flowing through your body, helping to combat stress, and booth your mood. Grab yourself a treadmill or some weights, or even just a yoga mat to challenge your body and mind this winter from the comfort of your home.
