The Simple Dollar Weekly Roundup: Winter Blues Edition

Most winters, I get a strong case of the “winter blues.” It usually manifests itself in a sense of feeling really tired, particularly in the darkest parts of winter.

This winter, strangely enough, I’ve barely had any blues at all. I’ve felt largely normal throughout most of the winter.

This is particularly strange, because this has been one of the coldest and snowiest winters in a very long time. We’ve run our snowblower at least a dozen times and had many cancelled days of school.

There must be something different in my routine or my diet, but I can’t figure out what it is. It’s a mystery to me.
