top apps avoid winter blues

You never know what the weather is going to bring, and some days being stuck inside can give you a case of the winter blues. It is during these times, those little lulls in life that we so rarely get, that I feel is the perfect time to learn something new, find a new favorite show to binge watch, or even just get some much-needed rest and relaxation. 

To help you make the most of what life and mother nature throws your way, check out my recommended apps to help you stave off those winter blues!
