Beating the Winter Blues

Beating the Winter Blues
Oh The Weather Outside Is Frightful

Winter can be a real drag for some. The days are shorter, the weather is colder and it all adds up to the desire to stay under the blankets longer each morning. If you’re having trouble beating the winter blues, try some of these tips that are proven to help improve your mood.

Let in the Light

One of the reasons people can get down in the winter is the lack of sunlight. Make a point of opening the blinds and sitting near the window when the sun is up. Or, force yourself to bundle up and take a walk outside each day for 15 to 20 minutes to get a good dosage of vitamin D.

Exercise

Not only does exercising release endorphins (which help cheer you up) but it’s an excuse to get up and get out of the house. Getting your body moving will help you feel better physically and, ultimately, emotionally.

Stay Upbeat

For an extra boost, listen to some upbeat music while you exercise. Research has shown that happier music improves moods in the moment and in the long run.

Keep Dreaming

If you feel like winter will never end, remind yourself that it will by planning a sunny vacation. Focusing on the warmer season that’s only months away has been proven to improve moods, promising, as always, that the sun will come out tomorrow.

Tips for Driving In Different Terrain

tips for driving in different terrain

It was no mistake how the 2017 GMC Terrain got its name. This compact SUV was designed to be able to tow and haul no matter the conditions. Despite its poise, you should still adjust to your driving conditions. Here are some tips for driving in different terrain.

 

Gravel and Dirt: The Road Less Traveled

Pavement is not only flat but it has a tendency to stay put. You can’t say the same thing for gravel and dirt. If you are hauling a load, you’ll probably feel it pushing you more and causing you to have to brake more. The answer is to slow down.

 

Rain, Ice, Sleet and Snow

Precipitation is going to dramatically increase your stopping distance. In the rain and snow, visibility is decreased as well. Adjust by increasing the distance between yourself and the vehicle in front of you. In these conditions, maintain a steady speed whenever possible. This is especially true when going uphill.

 

Uphill/Downhill

When driving downhill, anything you are towing is going to push you during braking and turns. Brake early and reduce speed to prevent loss of control. You should also be very aware of the tow rating of your vehicle and the weight of your load.

Know your limits and the limits of your vehicle. Only go where you can do so confidently.

GMC Named Most Refined Brand

When car buyers want sophistication, power, comfort, and technology, they turn to GMC. This was emphasized even more by Kelley Blue Book (KBB) naming GMC the Most Refined Brand in its 2016 Kelley Blue Book Brand Image Awards. This is the third year in a row GMC has earned this award from KBB.

Editors have praised GMC and its luxurious Denali sub-brand for its dedication to premium-quality materials, sophisticated design, industry-leading technology, and comfortable interiors. And, GMC does this while still maintaining its rugged capabilities and demeanor.
