Getting rid of the winter blues - KCBD NewsChannel 11 Lubbock

Getting rid of the winter blues

The calendar says this is the first day of spring, but if you still have the winter blues, a new Harvard study says just putting fresh flowers in your kitchen can reduce anxiety, and lift the blahs.

Treat yourself to a bunch, or surprise someone else who needs a lift. While you're brightening things up, pack away the black and gray, and try a little "color therapy".

Research finds yellow is often associated with sunshine and openness.

Orange evokes action, vitality, and endurance.

And the color green symbolizes new growth, fresh beginnings, and relaxation.

Sounds like just the thing to help us hurry along the start of spring.
