Tastemaker Feed: Save Us, Spring

Most years, the second half of March brings the first whiffs of warm air and tentative tweets of returning birds. Though the temperatures may still technically require a jacket, those early signs of spring usually imbue us with enough hope to shed a few layers. Not the case this year though!

Though Winter Storm Stella was downgraded from Blizzard status before touching down here in the Northeast, it still dragged in enough sleet, ice, and snow to keep spring hopes firmly on hold for the time being. How are our elite members coping? Let’s take a look.

Jinna Yang, of Project Inspo, starts us of with these wise words:

“Put good things into your body, and you’d be amazed at how much good will come out.

This isn’t about being a crazy health nut and preventing yourself from indulging in things every once in a while.  It’s about being mindful about your body, and focusing on becoming stronger — mentally AND physically.”

We couldn’t agree more, even if we are binging on our second pack of mini-muffins as we write this.

Artist and student Allegra has no time for bed rest or self-pity.

“Between art school and traveling, I would always rather be out exploring or creating, than sick and stuck in bed.”

This photo from her blog, Allegra Rose, gives us a peek into the things she turns to when seeking mental and physical relief. We especially appreciate the gorgeous flower and scenic photo bringing a touch of the outdoors into her home.


 

function-when-youre-sick-1Menucha, of Moms and Crafters, turns to self-care and a steaming cup of tea to help chase away the winter ennui. She also offers some sound advice for those not feeling their best:

Lower your expectations: I don’t mean your boss’s expectations. I mean your own. If you have a common cold, today is not the day to be a perfectionist. Tackle your responsibilities with the bare minimum that must be done and save perfectionism for tomorrow.”


 

That’s it for this week’s round-up. Time for you to share your strategies for getting through this last stretch of slush and grey skies. Give us your advice in the comments below.

Drink alot of Emergenc! It truly works like magic. Even if you start to feel a cold coming on, if you take it right away, it stops that cold in its tracks! A wonderful invention!

I definitely agree with you. Washing your hands often is very important. Also, when I’m sick or know that someone else is sick I definetly do not go around others.

An important thing to remember while you are not feeling the best during this time of year and the winter time is to make sure you are taking a couple different vitamins every day. I personally take Vitamin D3 to help your mental health and to help prevent colds/flues. It is also great for you because we are not getting enough of the natural sunlight as we are during summer time.

Another vitamin I take everyday is B12. This really helps with your energy levels as well as other properties.

I always drink 4-6 cups of green tea with honey and lemon, take my vitamin b complex with extra vitamin c, a 5-htp supplement for mental health, and snuggle up with my fur-baby in super soft micromink blankets. It’s pure heaven when you’re feeling blah.
