5 Products to Help You Beat the Winter Blues
By Rachel Naud
This time of year can give you a serious case of the blahs. The fun holidays are over and the warm days of spring are still a ways away. But don’t worry, there are plenty of things you can do to beat those winter blues!
Stay Fresh and Odour-Free
For starters, why not switch up your personal care routine this winter and check out these natural deodorants from Hello? They smell amazing, coming in scents like Sparkling Peach and Lavender + Vanilla, but more importantly, they offer 24-hour odour protection without using aluminum, baking soda or parabens. You can easily pick them up at Shoppers Drug Mart, Rexall, or Amazon.
Start Your Day Right
And if you’re trying to reduce your sugar intake and want to shake up your breakfast routine, you should definitely check out the Darbo brand of fruit spreads. They’ve just launched a spread with 80% fruit, which is one of the highest fruit contents you’ll find in the supermarket, meaning up to 50% less sugar than other jams. You can really taste the fruit, and it’s a great way to beat the winter blues because fruits are synonymous with sunshine and summer. You can easily pick it up at most independent grocers.
Get Your Game On
For families beating the winter blues by going away this March Break, the Nintendo Switch OLED Model is the perfect game system to take on the go. It has a 7-inch screen and is designed to go wherever you do, transforming from home console to portable system in a snap. Once you arrive at your destination, you can easily connect your Nintendo Switch to a TV and enjoy a wide variety of amazing games to play together with family and friends.
And with March 10th known as “MAR10 Day,” a whole day dedicated to celebrating everyone’s favourite mustachioed hero, Mario, Nintendo is offering some great promotions starting this week, including a Nintendo Switch bundle that includes a system and your choice of a free Mario game download for $399 (a $79 saving!) and so many more great promotions on select games featuring Mario! You can learn more about all the promotions on Nintendo.ca.
Relax and Recharge
Of course, there’s nothing better than a little self-care to beat those winter blues. For all things pampering, you can always trust Dr. Teals. Their Lavender Epsom Salt and Foaming Bath set is ideal for recharging the mind, body and spirit. The fine essential oils help to relieve stress and boost your mood while also soothing sore muscles and setting you up for an amazing night’s rest. You can easily pick it up at Shoppers Drug Mart.
Get Some Fun in the Sun
And last but not least, one surefire way to beat the winter blues is to go somewhere sunny and soak up some heat! You want to feel comfortable and confident when you’re poolside or on the beach, and you’ll definitely love the swimwear coming out of La Vie En Rose. Their styles of suits mold perfectly to your curves and give you excellent coverage for larger breasts for unmatched comfort. You can easily shop them at your local La Vie En Rose.
