Happy light

Thursday, December 13, 2012

I've been working on my Christmas cards and here is a picture. They are made of cut paper layers.

I'm also painting a watercolor snow-laden tree on the envelope.
No exercise today, it was snowing heavy wet almost rain-like snow so I wimped out and I couldn't leave work to go to the gym but I'm all set for tomorrow.
Today was a big milestone, I saw 239 on the scale, a sight I haven't seen in years! Even so, I am not aiming for any more weight-loss this month, I'll be happy to maintain until after the hols.
I am gritting my teeth and holding on tight to my sanity as soon the light will be coming back on the 21st. I bought myself a "Happy Light" that is supposed to help with Seasonal Affective Disorder. I haven't noticed any increase in happiness; maybe I need to take it with me every where I go.

    I think I have it too. The rainy, dark days really get to me.

    Wow, beautiful! Some people get all the talent I tell you! If the light's not enough, try vitamin D3 supplements. I go lay in the tanning bed every once in a while just to get warm and pretend I'm basking in the sun far, far away somewhere. I don't have SAD but I am often COLD! Hope happiness shines on you every day, spark friend. emoticon

    A beautiful card made by a lovely lady. That is a wonderful gift to those who will receive the cards.

    There are blue light bulbs available in stores now that can be exchanged for your regular light bulbs. They will disburse the Happy Light rays all around your home. Exposure is the key.

    I like doing the SP videos on days when I can't get to the gym. There are a couple of indian cardio sets that are a kick. Check it out. You may just find that you can easily continue to loose during the holidays because you've incorporated so many healthy habits into your lifestyle. Enjoy your life!

    Have a Happy emoticon

    Nice cut-outs!
    Have you thought of doing the layers in different colours? The deer in brown?

    You are very arty! The card is looking great. We are in the middle of summer here in New Zealand and only 3 more months and our daylight savings is over. Enjoy your winter. I never had snow for more than a day or two.
