How To Avoid The Winter Blues


There are only a few months left of the cold winter days! For those who don’t enjoy winter, this may seem daunting to you. However, there are a lot of ways to get out of your apartment and make the most of what winter has to offer while avoiding those winter blues.

Get Outside

Your instinct may be to hibernate during the winter months, but Vitamin D will work wonders for you! The Rideau Canal has officially opened and is a great way to get some fresh air and exercise – be sure to check ice conditions and which sections are open before venturing out! Top it off with a Beavertail and getting out of your apartment will be well worth it. There are numerous of other winter activities that you could participate in including skiing, snowshoeing, outdoor festivals and even just going for a walk to get coffee, a bite to eat, or exercise your pup. Make use of the outdoor dog run at the back of the building on the mild days to keep your pup happy also. Check out our Ultimate Guide to Winter in Ottawa, here!


Friends and family can be an instant mood booster. Plan a coffee date, dinner date, or even just stay in and catch up or watch a game. Even if you vote to stay inside, socializing will make the winter go by much quicker! Head up to the Mingle Room and play a game of pool or ping pong or watch something on the big screen.

Stay Active

With the fully equipped TechnoSystem gym at LIV Apartments, you don’t even need to leave the building to stay active! Fit in a workout when you can or commit to a schedule to keep yourself active and healthy this winter. For more tips on how to stay active this winter, take a look at our post here.

Get Involved

Ottawa is a busy city and there is always something going on. Volunteer your time at an event, charity, activity, etc.


On the weekends or after work/school when you’re sitting around walking movies or TV, a hobby could be just what you need to feel more involved in something. You could join a team, read, or take up another activity that you enjoy!


Pets have an incredibly way of cheering us up when we’re feeling down and being a great companion. With LIV Apartments being 100% pet-friendly, we have a ton of furry friends in the building! Our pets can also get into a winter funk during the colder month and it’s important that we take care of their health as well as our own!
