cure your winter blues

The Patranila Project

ward off the winter blues

Shorter days and long, cold nights can really get you down. Adding a few fun things to your winter routine can help!

indulge your creativity


Let your inner artist come out to play. Enroll in that painting or pottery class you've always wanted to take. Or pick up some art supplies and freestyle it. Either way, create something new!

feed your soul


Being in the presence of beauty can sustain your spirit when your surroundings seem bleak. Visit your favorite museum or discover new artists at a local art gallery.

People don't notice whether it's winter or summer when they're happy.

connect with friends


Hibernating in winter is easy but staying connected to friends and family is an excellent mood booster. Make plans to get together regularly and keep those plans!

stay active


As cozy as your sofa is, exercising regularly is one of the best ways to lift your spirits during the long, winter months. Just 20 minutes of movement will release those feel-good hormones!

In the winter she curls up around a good book and dreams away the cold.

make home extra cozy


When you are at home, make sure you have plenty of warm, snuggly blankets on hand. Faux fur or chunky knit throws are perfect for evenings spent on the couch.
