Overcoming a Case of the Blahs

When you're down, what cheers you up? The gloomy days here in New York have created a widespread case of the blahs. According to news sources, we've had more than double the normal amount of rain for this month. That's a sure way to dampen spirits, and I'm no exception, so I'd love to hear your suggestions. Besides planning all the activities I'll do once the sun starts shining, here's what I've done so far.

1. Entertainment: I've watched lots of funny movies. Read about the health benefits of laughter.
2. Exercise: I've gone outside for a run during any respite that we've had. Check out our running tips for beginners.
3. Eating: I've been using my veggies from the CSA to cook some yummy seasonal meals. Get recipes.

What do you do to cheer up when stricken by a case of the blahs? Please share below.
