Some autumn and winter days are just plain gloomy – especially when Daylight Savings Time ends and we see less of that precious sunshine. When it transitions from sunny, cool days where you might see me jump for joy, to cloudy skies and frigid temperatures where I’d rather just jump back into bed, it can be a little rough! While I love a gloomy day every now and then so I can get cozy and relax, most days I’ve still got to get up and get on with the day. It’s not always easy, so here are a few ways I’m inspired to create my own sun when it’s not sunshine-y outside:
Sunshine #1 Sweat It Out!
Bundling up and going on a crisp walk outside or heading to the gym to get my heart pumping always makes a huge difference for me. While some days it seems like moving a mountain to get myself up and motivated I’ve never regretted how I feel afterwards. When I can get outside I love to put on some earmuffs to keep warm and breathe in the crisp air as my feet hit the pavement. At the gym my favorite cardio is the stair climber or walking/jogging on the treadmill at a steep incline – even weight training gets my heart pumping and I just love to feel that burn! Getting out and getting active definitely makes my day brighter and does my body good.
Sunshine #2 Sassy In the Shower
If you take a peek in my clothing closet you’ll be greeted with an array of neutrals, but take a peek at my shower and you’ll see pops of color in bottles, pots & potions for hair and body! Even my daily get-me-smooth routine is a feminine burst of color in the premium disposable BIC® Soleil® Glow® Razor. A major upgrade from the first razor I experienced in my teen years, the BIC® Soleil® Glow® Razor has a few key elements I love in a disposable razor:
- A lubricating strip so it glides smoothly
- Flexible blades that glide across all my curves
- The COMFORT SHIELD® head which helps protect my skin from irritation
- A rubber grip so it doesn’t slip
- $6.99 (suggested retail price) for a 3-pack doesn’t break the bank
- And those fun pastel colors are a bright and colorful bonus, of course!
Sunshine #3 Opt For a Pop of Color
After my colorful shower experience when I’m getting ready to conquer a cloudy day, I’m inspired to pull it together with a pop of color on my lips. My go-to shades in the fall and winter are reds and berries with the occasional fuchsia mixed in when I’m in the mood. Bold is not necessarily a requirement when it comes to color either! Winter is the perfect time to toy with frosty pastels on the eyes for a little color as well, which makes me feel like a modern-day ice queen. Adding a little color in my makeup routine takes away those gloomy weather blues and creates my own little sun at my vanity.
So gloomy, cloudy day, take that! I’ve discovered creating my own sun by getting my heart pumping, keeping my daily skin-smooth routine colorful with BIC® Soleil®, and playing with a little color on the lips or eyes means I’ve got my own pocket full of sunshine!
