Getting Past the Wintertime Blahs

The holidays are actually over. You have even managed to put the last of the holiday decorations away until next year. The end of the year seemed to race by; in contrast, January and February feel as if they are dragging on forever. You have the wintertime blahs. One of the defintions of blah is: "a state of weariness, boredom or a general lack of interest in life."

How do you move past the "blahs?"  First, don't wait for someone else to do it for you.  YOU have the tools to move forward. Look ahead in your calendar. Is there a vacation coming up this summer? Do you have season tickets to a favorite sporting event? Do you usually spend some time with your horse in the summer exploring new trails or even traversing old favorites? In other words, step out of the cool shadow of holiday memories, and look ahead to the warm embrace of the events that are soon to come.   

You can also help your business move past the "blahs."  Don't let your post-holiday weariness spill over into your communication with customers.  You want to be that person who perks them up; so when they get off the phone they say, "Wow, I'm really glad I spoke with [your name] today!"  Don't assume that customers are overloaded from the holiday sales rush and tired of hearing from you - continue low-level outreach.  Let them know your business is not taking a break after the holidays and is ready to serve them!

Find those bright spots in winter; create those bright spots in winter.  And the promise of spring will not be far behind.
