Do YOU Have “The In-Between’s?”

Do you have the “In-Betweens”? You know, it is not the exciting time of the holidays or the uplifting time of Spring. We are just stuck in the “In-Betweens!”

Symptoms that may occur:
  • Feeling tired.
  • No ambition to do anything.
  • Lack of excitement or enthusiasm.
  • The need to stay home and cuddle up with a blanket.
  • When looking around one’s home, nothing looks right.
  • Feeling the need for a whole transformation of one’s home.
  • Nothing seems to inspire you.
  • Avoid looking in the mirror.
Do any of these sound familiar?

Possible Cures:
  1. Enjoy cuddling under the blanket by adding a cup of your favorite hot beverage and a good design book or magazine.
  2. When grocery shopping buy a bouquet of flowers and a couple of new house plants to brighten up your space.
  3. Place pretty fruit in a bowl on your counter.
  4. Remove a few accessories from cluttered areas to open up the space
  5. Start making a list of projects starting with the small ones
  6. Go to an antique show or a garden show to get inspiration.
  7. Take a walk and enjoy the beauty around you.
  8. Look in the mirror and spruce up a little. Blush and lipstick go a long way in helping us look a little perkier.
  9. Make a lunch date with a good friend and talk about how you feel.

I have a lot going on right now and I am totally excited about the process of getting our playroom done, but I still have been a recipient of the “In-Betweens.”  I am working my way out of them by doing some of the above suggestions.

I hope this helps a little to know you are not alone in this malady!!
