It’s that time in winter when the doldrums can settle in. Whether you’ve seen snow or rain or freezing cold it can be difficult to think about having some fun.
We suggest in this blog that adding some fun to your life can be just the medicine to drive the doldrums away.
No matter your age, there are always ideas of ways you can enjoy yourself. For children it can be as simple as playing in the snow or having a playdate with a friend.
For some of us going to a museum, going out dancing or having dinner with friends does the trick.
If you are a senior and living on your own, in assisted living or a nursing home there are still ways for you to have some fun. You may not be as mobile as you once were so think about what you enjoy and are still able to do.
You could get a friend and work on a puzzle together. If Twister feels a bit too daunting, try a game of scrabble or a card game. Get a friend and have a walk around the facility. The one who arrives first can spring for a coffee in the cafeteria.
Your facility could have opportunities to go to a movie or play or maybe even a comedy show. Get a group together and hit the town! Do you have access to a Karaoke machine? If so, sing a song or two.
Private Home Health Care wants you to think about what makes you happy. We hope you take time this week to add some fun to your life. Smiling and laughter is great medicine for the doldrums.
