Five Ways to Beat S.A.D. This Winter


Let's face it, Winter makes anyone depressed, even this Big City Siren gets S.A.D. (Seasonal Affective Disorder).  My neighborhood homeless guy is not looking the best either. So to beat S.A.D., here are five tips to help you not want to kill yourself this Winter.

1.  Make little post-it notes and put them all around your apartment.  These notes should say things like, "You're not going to die alone (Unless you don't stop eating the way you have been)", and "You are a good person no matter what your mom says."

2.  Wake up to the song "Whip My Hair" by Willow Smith and Whip your hair vigorously while listening and getting ready for your day.  I can't imagine that anyone could feel sad after that.  Maybe a little sore.

3. Watch shows like: Oprah, Going Postal, Intervention, Toddlers and Tiaras, The Biggest Loser, 16 and Pregnant, Full House, OBSESSED, and Hoarders. No matter what, you will always feel like you are better than those people.

4. When in doubt, just think back to What about Bob. Say to yourself, "What Would Bob Wiley Do?".  If you are feeling gloomy, you can repeat to yourself, "I feel Good, I feel Great, I feel Wonderful".  If someone is bothering you on the street, you can say, "Don't Hassle me, I'm Local" or if you just can't get your butt out of the door to face the world, I recommend doing a little "Baby steps".. "Baby steps, out of the apartment.... I'm out of the APARTMENT!!!!!"

5.  Hang out with your neighborhood Homeless men.  They will always make you feel beautiful, loved, and clean.
