This time of year, people can get a little thing called Cabin Fever. You may have had it. Symptoms include massive dissatisfaction with no acute source, general annoyance, a claustrophobic sensation while in your home, aggravating feelings of boredom, snappy and curt communications with loved ones, a feeling that all clothes are perhaps itchier and more ill-fitting than they were before. Not all people experience all symptoms, and perhaps those living in sunny California have never experienced this sensation. But suffice it to say, come late January or February, most people start feeling a little dissatisfied with...something. If you know this feeling, you know Cabin Fever.
Luckily, there are easy and effective cures available. One of the best known cures is to go outside. If it’s still below zero where you are, this is likely to have uncomfortable side effects. If this is not an option, try the other well known cure: home improvement.
I’m not talking about hammer and nails home improvement, I mean, unless you’re up for it, but rather the sorts of simple changes that can make the oldest, most claustrophobic home feel refreshed. I’m talking about relining your nest, so to speak. If a fresh pair of sheets, a new duvet cover, or even a less ratty towel might alleviate some of that cabin fever, this is the very best time to make improvements to your nest, and here are the best deals.
