DealDash Health: Get Rid of Winter Fatigue

DealDash

Winter fatigue can really ruin your day. However, DealDash is here to give you some tips on how to combat winter fatigue. Read on for more information.

With the cold weather of winter approaching quickly many people are going to be dealing with more fatigue than they usually do. Cold weather and a lack of sunlight can really make a person feel more tired than they care to be. Here are some simple ways to beat winter fatigue this year from your friends at DealDash Reviewed.

Try an Aromatherapy Diffuser

Aromatherapy can be very useful for getting rid of fatigue in the winter time. Many professionals in aromatherapy state that scents like anything citrus or peppermint can be very uplifting when you are feeling tired. You can, of course, use any scent that gives you some extra energy. Many people find the scent of coffee uplifting for example. You will want to avoid the scent of lavender, however, because this is a scent known to make people feel sleepy. 

Stay Hydrated

You should never underestimate the power of water in the wintertime. Many people don’t drink as much water in the winter as they do in the summer. In return, they become dehydrated which can cause fatigue. So make sure you are consuming enough water when the weather turns cold as your level of fatigue often depends on it. Also, if you find yourself with a nagging headache in the winter, this can also be due to dehydration. Stay hydrated this winter. You’ll be glad that you did.

Have a Good Attitude

Something as simple as learning to laugh more can make you feel less tired. Some other things that you can do to beat fatigue in the winter include avoiding people that seem to sap your energy and instead stay in the company of cheerful and upbeat people.

Developing an exercise routine that you are able to stick to doing can help beat your winter fatigue and improve your attitude. Also, don’t forget to take your daily multi-vitamin. All of these can keep your energy levels up so you will not have to worry about fatigue.

DealDash Sews a Minky Blanket

Image result for minky blanket

Minky is one of the softest fabrics that you can use. Minky is a very common fabric to make into baby blankets, and here is one very easy blanket that you can sew yourself.

I absolutely love to sew. I make anything and everything, from baby bibs to dresses to baby blankets. I love to make patchwork quilts, but they are just too time consuming if you want to whip up a quick baby blanket for a gift at a baby shower. Making a blanket from minky and printed cotton is a quick and easy project that you can complete in a weekend – or less if you don’t have any interruptions!

Image result for minky blanket Materials:

  • 1 yard of minky fabric, any color that coordinates with your printed cotton
  • 1 yard of printed cotton that coordinates with your minky fabric
  • 1 yard of batting, your choice of thickness
  • About 200 inches of bias or binding tape – Please note that 1 yard of fabric is always 36 inches long, but the width usually varies between 32 and 60 inches. Most fabrics are available in widths of 45 inches and 60 inches. So depending on the particular fabric that you have selected for your project the width can vary. So please measure your fabric to figure out how much binding that you need.
  • Notions (thread, scissors, pins, fabric chalk or marker, etc.)

Directions:

  1. Lay your printed cotton fabric pattern side down on a clean and clear area of the floor.
  2. Lay your batting on top of the fabric, matching up all of the edges
  3. Lay your minky fabric on top, with the little nubbies face up
  4. Pin all around the edges – I put my pins about 5-6 inches apart
  5. If you would like, you can draw a pattern on the blanket that you can sew, such as swirls or whatever you feel comfortable with doing. If you don’t want to do that extra step, then you can just sew through the blanket from one edge to the other, twice vertically, and twice horizontally. This is just to make sure that the inner batting doesn’t move or get bunched up when you’re using it.
  6. Trim around the edges to even everything up, and then zigzag stitch or serge around all of the edges
  7. Pin your bias tape/ binding all the way around your blanket
  8. Sew the bias tape/binding onto the blanket
  9. All done!

Wasn’t that easy?! I am in the process of making one for my little 7 month old baby, his nursery is nautical patterned, heavy on the whales. I couldn’t find a blanket that I liked that had whales and was soft enough for a baby blanket, so I decided to make my own.
