Winter is beautiful, but it also means that people are either stuck inside or commuting to work in less than ideal weather. In all actuality, the season is a short one, but the potential for catching a case of the winter blues is still incredibly high. Here are some foolproof ways to fight off those feelings.

Pretend it’s Summer

We aren’t recommending full-blown denial, but if you need to attend a tropical-themed event to get through the cold months, go for it! In fact, we are hosting a new event called the March Into Summer Party on March 9th! Come enjoy delicious food, thirst-quenching cocktails and fun music from the 60’s to 90’s from a live band. The winter blues don’t stand a chance!

Try a Winter Sport

Much of the problems that lead to a feeling of winter depression are caused by a lack of movement and therefore a low level of endorphins. Challenge yourself this winter to try a new physical activity like snow shoeing, golfing (you can still take lessons during the winter), or cross-country skiing. You can do all of those things here at Atkinson Resort & Country Club.

Plan an Event or Go on a Date

For those who like to plan early, now is the perfect time to start planning your spring event or filling in your social calendar. Here are some upcoming holidays to consider:

  • Valentine’s Day February 14th, 2018
  • Saint Patrick’s Day March 17th, 2018
  • Easter April 1st, 2018
  • Cinco de Mayo May 5th, 2018
  • Mother’s Day May 13th, 2018
  • Memorial Day May 28th, 2018

As you can see, the months will fly by if you make plans for each of the holidays. Here are some of our suggestions for those dates:

Or – if you already have plans for the holidays, consider starting to plan traditional spring events like baby showers, baptisms, graduation parties, or conferences. Starting to plan now will take the stress out of the process. If you are wondering where to start, we wrote a blog on that topic. You can read it here.


Are you dying for Spring? So are we (predictably as that’s when the golf season starts!) Make sure read our blogs regularly to find out what’s new and interesting during every season.
