It is well known that the ‘blues’ can be alleviated by good sleep, a bath and a glass of wine. We all have tough days, days that we are grateful that they come to an end. We should remember though that it is the simple things that can help alleviate the melancholy. A leisurely walk, sitting by a fire, or yes, a good glass of our favorite beverage can be the tonic to refresh us and bring us back to center. Find what works for you and practice it.
