Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is real. You can feel irritable, blues-y or tired because of the shorter days of winter. Here are a few ideas to keep your mood up throughout the year, especially during winter’s dark days.
According to the Mayo Clinic, try making your environment sunnier and brighter. Cut back trees, open curtains – let light in! Get outside and move. A few minutes of sun can relieve the symptoms of SAD. Exercise and take care of your body. Socialize with friends and practice stress management.
Don’t let the symptoms of SAD ruin the beauty of the season!
