1. Fancy up your Instant Pot.

We love our Instant Pots and bet you do too! Whether you love one pot meals, are pressed for time, or just always get into the latest and greatest kitchen gadgets, chances are you’re using an Instant Pot. And if you don’t have one, you need one now. Click here for our favorite Instant Pot.

Now that we’ve established that the Instant Pot is awesome and we’re sure you have one (or have one ordered ;)), you are going to want one of these wraps … now! Whether you like simple stripes or something a little bolder, we’re sure you are can find a wrap (or two) to dress up your Instant Pot and kitchen a bit.

Currently, we’re loving these adorable wraps from All Wrapped Up on Etsy.

2. Grab some cute athletic (or athlesiure!) wear.

New year. New goals. More than likely you’ve either started a new routine or amped up your normal workout schedule and started watching what you eat now that 2019 is here! While working out and cutting out your favorite treats can be drag, sporting adorable clothing with a purpose that encourages your heart and mind can give you the confidence you need to get things done!

Super cute and oh-so comfy, check out some of our fave tanks, tees, and hoodies from Cross Training Couture.

3. Boost your immune system.

Nothing is worse than feeling bad on a cold winter day. Whether you’re trying to keep your immune system boosted or are looking for a remedy for a bug that’s hit, Elderberry Syrup is a game changer. Made from a powerhouse combination of elderberries, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, rose hips, star anise, honey and more, Elderberry Syrup has shown to be an immune booster as well as a cold and flu buster that is packed with vitamins A, B & C!

Our favorite Elderberry Syrup is produced locally by The Elderberry Syrup Lady and is sold in Davie County at the Advance Country Store. No worries if you aren’t local – you can also order online.

4. Nourish your skin.

Missing warm days, blue skies, and your summer glow? While we can’t promise sun-kissed cheeks in the middle of January, we can ease your winter blues with healthy, nourished skin. We’ve recently become huge fans of The Ordinary, a skincare company that produces “clinical formulations with integrity” – and at the lowest price point you’ll find (under $10!!!) for high-quality face oils and serums. Even if you are devoted to your daily skincare regimen, consider adding a potent Vitamin C serum, retinoid oil, or moisturizer with Hyaluronic Acid to brighten up your dry, winter skin. Check out the entire line here.

5. Embrace the cold.

Instead of fighting the cold weather, why not embrace it with a fun, winter-themed race? The Popsicle 5K is the perfect activity for your entire family! Get a jumpstart on your 2019 fitness goals with this short race through Rick Park in Mocksville and bribe your kids to join you with the Brain Freeze challenge … a popsicle at the beginning, middle, and end of the race!

Best yet, all proceeds from the race go to support youth led projects in Davie County projects in Davie County. Not a runner? Don’t worry. The Zero K still gives you the opportunity to give back to an amazing cause and a great event!

The Popsicle 5K is on February 16th, but sign up before the 9th to save big on the race fee (Davie county students and staff are only $10 each!). Check out all the details here.

So tell us, are you going to try out any of our ideas? What are your favorite products and practices to beat the winter blues!?
