Baby it’s cold outside!
Are the winter blue’s getting you down? You’re not alone. Seasonal Affective Disorder impacts over 10 million individuals each year.
People affected by this disorder often feel down and lonely when the days grow dark and cold, yearning for the warm sunshine to return and the fog of depression to be lifted.
Tips to Beat the Blues:
Be Kind to Your Mind This Winter Season; seasonal depression happens. But there are ways to overcome it and enjoy the most of what this time of year has to offer.
- Try Light Therapy: These devices give off light that mimics sunshine and can help in the management of SAD, and it is suggested to sit in front of them for 20-30 minutes a day.
- Get Social: Spending time with friends and loved ones is a great way to boost your mood. Studies show that putting attention on others and doing kind things for those we love can boost serotonin in the brain and improve our state of well-being.
- Practice Self-Care: Take a walk when there are moment of sunshine earlier in the day, take a bath, watch your favorite movie, turn off social media, cuddle your pet—and more. Anything that brings you joy, please do it as often as needed to give yourself some extra TLC during this difficult season. Don’t forget, self-care also includes your needs: doing laundry, cooking a nutritious meal, and taking your medication.
- Meditate & Shift Your Perspective: Using a video on YouTube, or a meditation app like Headspace or Calm is a great way to clear your mind and relax. 10 minutes of meditation a day has shown to improve poor moods and add a little pep to your step.
