Has Old Man Winter been over staying his welcome? Are you feeling trapped under those heavy blankets and sweaters. Even if you can’t splurge on an exotic vacation to a romantic island, our affordable tropical beach art posters can brighten your room and your mood! Imagine cheerful art that takes you far away to your ideal escape paradise. Can you feel the soft ocean breezes?
This has been a particularly bitter Winter for many people, and given the ongoing struggles with our economy, most of us cannot afford to take off to some gorgeous, balmy beach. SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) also can be a factor in our mood during the long Winter months, when sunlight is diminished. For those afflicted with the depression associated with this season or even those with a case of the winter blues, it can be difficult to feel motivated. Many doctors have prescribed doses of vitamin D along with light therapy to assist those with SAD. Perhaps a cheerful, sunny beach scene along with those treatments can elevate the mood.
Display a large art print of your favorite location or even a place you have always dreamed of visiting on a well-lit wall in your home or office. Play soft music, waves, or nature sounds and picture yourself in the scene. Imagine the feel of the soft sand against your skin. Hear the birds call and the waves lap the shore. Perhaps you hear laughter of children in the distance or your loved one’s voice. Take deep cleansing breaths, letting them out slowly. While you breathe out, try to relax your muscles more and more each time. These relaxation techniques have proven very helpful to many in alleviating stress and depression when used on a regular basis.
