How to Make February Suck Less
How to Make February Suck Less
It's the cruelest month of the year in even the best of times—and these most certainly are not the best of times. That means curing the blahs by jetting off for a daiquiri-soaked sun fest is out. As is treating your seasonal-affectedness with pricey retail, spa, or fine-dining therapy. But hope of enduring the frostbitten weeks ahead is not lost: There are still plenty of ways to perk up your February, all of which can be done on the cheap, and none of which requires leaving town. (You might want a good pair of snow boots, though.)
