Tips to Chase Away Winter Blues
Many people report experiencing winter blues during the winter months. However, it is actually pretty easy to go through a long, cold winter and come out healthy and joyful. Using this season to a person’s advantage is the best approach; there is no other productive choice. Here are several ways to make the winter months very cheery months!
Get Outside… Every Day
Getting outside is a great way to uplift a person’s mood. Smelling the outside air helps beat the cabin fever that plagues many people during the cold winter months. Even a simple trip to the mailbox can uplift a person’s spirits dramatically (as long as you bundle up first). For those looking to vacation, visiting a resort like our neighbor, Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, is a great way to have fun in the winter. A family can enjoy relaxing in heated pools while being served delicious food and beverages pool-side. Woodlands Spa is also very popular for giving rejuvenating treatments that are relaxing to the body and mind.
Enjoying delicious foods can uplift anyone’s spirits. When it is too cold to be outside, enjoying a deliciously cooked restaurant meal is the next best thing. Exciting specials such as those held daily at Lady Luck Casino® are enough to get most people excited. Handcrafted sandwiches are served up daily at The Lone Wolf® – each day having a special twist. When it comes to Otis & Henry’s®, we might as well brag about our entire menu.
Win some cash!
Winning money is never going to make you frown! On Sundays this winter, you will find a $1,000 Bank It Blackjack Tournament. The excitement of winning brings many people in, despite the cold. For those craving some warm weather, on Sunday December 14th, 21st and 28th there is a Winter Warm-Up Giveaway. Five lucky guests will have a chance to win a hotel package to Pompano Beach, Florida and $250 in cash. These are just a few specials that are going on at Lady Luck Casino sure to warm your spirit!
Since exercising outdoors can be very difficult some days, it is advisable to set up an indoor workout routine. With countless online resources such as YouTube®, there is no excuse for an able-bodied person to skip exercising. Simple 20 minute videos offer a challenging workout. When done at least three times a week, the health benefits are enough to lift the constant feeling of dullness that accompanies the cold months.
Get out there!
Attending events that are open to the public can also provide some much-needed relief when experiencing the blues. Mingling and small talk can go a long way. With the holidays fast approaching, we’re giving everyone a great opportunity for mingling with the New Year’s Eve Celebrations at Lady Luck. The exciting festivities are sure to put a smile on everybody’s face. To put an even BIGGER smile on your face, Lady Luck will be holding a drawing for over $20,000 in Cash and FanPlay®. With cash incentives, great food and entertainment, this event will be fully packed as people ring in the New Year.
Attending a live band is a great way to get pumped up and excited. There are many popular live bands playing every weekend in Lone Wolf®. Those who prefer daytime activities can attend the New Year’s Day Brunch. This will be an upscale event with a nice variety of foods for $15.99*. There will be an option for a Bloody Mary and Mimosa Bar for an extra $5.
Being stuck indoors for a whole season can wreak havoc on a person’s mood. Engaging in fun activities that bring joy and happiness is the key to counteracting these negative side effects. Choosing to do at least one thing per day is often enough to keep winter blues away. So put a smile on your face, pull out that parka and come on in… cause if nothing else, we’ll be happy to see you!
