Holiday celebrations are over and the weather outside is frightful, which can only mean one thing: the winter blues are officially here. Fortunately, you can kick those seasonal blahs to the curb with a simple practice — celebrating micro-moments of joy.

Micro joys are small, unplanned moments of happiness or appreciation that you experience throughout the day. Finding and celebrating these small moments can ultimately make a big difference in how you feel.

Surround yourself with things you love
When you fill your space with items that make you happy, it will be easier to find joy in the tiny things. Celebrity designer Amanda Aerin is a big fan of using delightful décor to create a sanctuary at home. “Creating a space filled with beauty and meaningful treasures is a great way to lift your spirits.”

Be present
Living in the moment and taking time to appreciate small wins can help improve your mood and your mindset.

Refresh your home
Being grateful for your surroundings is a lot easier when your home is warm and cozy, so use a few tricks to brighten your mood if need be.

“For me, scent really helps boost my mood, so I use Febreze Unstopables Touch fabric spray everywhere from the pillow cushions to the carpet. It delivers a burst of freshness every time you touch it, and a whiff of that scent is the perfect pick-me-up,” says Aerin. Learn more at
