4 ways making plans can help beat the winter blues

2020 has been a year like no other, and it is understandable that you may be feeling low in the upcoming winter months. However, making plans for next year is a great way to beat those blues. Here are four reasons why.

1. Planning gives you something to aim for

Having something to look forward to is a wonderful feeling. And planning that ‘something’ is lots of fun! Consider choosing an old favourite or something completely new. Either way, you should make plans that will make you smile and laugh, and create wonderful memories. It gives you something to focus on and aim for as we look towards the end of one year and the start of a brand new one filled with opportunity.

2. Planning keeps you busy

When stuck inside, it can feel like there is nothing to do. But planning keeps you busy. Factor in transport, travel time, locations, things to see and do, attractions, where to eat and what to take. With so much to organise, you will be able to occupy your mind with more constructive things. Bear in mind that when things begin to open up, you will have less time, so utilise the quiet period now to schedule in those plans and make all the necessary arrangements.

3. Planning encourages you to connect with friends and family

Making plans is one thing, but making plans with others is a great excuse to connect. You might make plans to do with friends, family or both! There might not be a great deal to talk about right now, but making plans for the future gives you something to discuss with others. It also allows you to create amazing memories with people you haven’t been able to see as much as you would have liked to.

4. Planning gives you a reason to smile

Making fun plans creates a number of emotions. Excitement, happiness, joy, optimism and elation are only some of them. And it’s not just the planning stage that will make you smile. It is also the knowledge of your upcoming adventures, holidays and days out in the open air that will keep the grin on your face. So, get planning and stay smiling as we head into 2021!
