So you turned back the clock this past weekend.
Congratulations, welcome to winter ... and the attendant soul-sucking reality that is five o’clock darkness. Yes, it’s depressing. But it needn’t be. Below, five little ways to proactively make this winter a little less dreary.
One way to feel more alive: surround yourself with, uh, more life. It doesn’t take much to keep your space fresh. This microgarden kit can live on your desk and provides clean, crispy O2 wherever it goes.
One way to the fight the winter blues: a better sleep. A mattress is only as good as its owner says it is, but there’s a whole slew of new startups making it easier (and cheaper) than ever to upgrade your sleeping surface. Leesa is a medium-firm number with a 100-day return policy, and they supply a homeless shelter with a mattress for every 10 they sell.
