#MindfulnessMonday
The winter seems to have taken its hold on the general mood of my friends and me (and maybe for you and your friends, too). We’re all a little quieter (myself only a very little, according to my brother) and a little less proactive than we were when it was warmer.  To combat any such winter woes/seasonal blues, the internet suggests the typical (simple, wonderful) cures: taking a walk, talking to friends, eating healthy, being outside, etc. Along with this, I personally suggest reading a book (what else would you expect from a graduate assistant at the library?) and buying a space heater (something unheard of back home in North Carolina). The library can provide you with easy access to one of my personal suggestions.

P.s. – and for the other, we could probably point you in the right direction.
