Long, dark, cold days got you feeling down and dreaming of spring? Here are some tips to defeat the winter doldrums:

• Exercise! Consistently release endorphins by sticking to a routine. Hot yoga and kickboxing are fun ways to warm up.
• Eat! Add servings of mood-boosting omega 3 and vitamin B12 to your meals. Salmon has both, and Greek yogurt topped with walnuts and chia seeds is a good snack.
• Breathe! Diffuse citrus essential oils. The scent of citrus may help relieve anxiety and is reminiscent of warmer days.
• Get outside! Soak up vitamin D and appreciate the winter scenery.

Navigating the new Facebook #change

As Facebook changes its algorithm again, there are tips you need to know to ensure your audience still sees posts from your business pages.
 

Start a page, build a following and promote for free. That was the old Facebook. Change is now here.

Facebook announced that unpaid content from businesses and brands is basically being moved out of your news feed to make room for more posts from friends and family. No biggie for many, but for folks like us who promote services and the next big thing in Memphis, this tip is for you!

Keep building your following, but ask your audience to adjust their settings to prioritize your posts. And for a bigger boost, add Facebook ads to your 2018 marketing budget.
