Tips to Battle the Winter Blues

Tips to Battle the Winter Blues

Winter can be dark, gloomy, bleak, and seemingly never-ending. Even the heartiest of winter lovers can feel irritable, fatigued, and just out of sorts during these cold weather months. For most, it’s just a case of mild winter blues. Others, however, suffer from seasonal affective disorder, or SAD, which begins in the fall and typically ends in the spring as temps get milder and days get longer.

Fortunately, a few simple home and lifestyle changes can help boost those endorphins and help get you out of this seasonal funk. Of course, these tips are no substitute for talking to your doctor.

Sunlight

Let as much natural light into your home as possible. Trim back tree branches and shrubs that block windows, keep curtains and blinds open on sunny days, and work, read, or relax near a window if possible.

Light Therapy

Light therapy is believed to cause a change in the brain chemicals linked to mood. It involves daily exposure to a particular level of light intensity typically occurring within the first hour of waking up. Ask your primary care physician if light therapy may be right for you.

Aromatherapy

It is believed that certain essential oils can elevate your mood and provide a slight anti-depressant effect. Make a potpourri, use a high-quality diffuser, or simply boil some water in a small pan and add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to let the scent waft through the air.

Sleep

Having trouble falling and staying asleep? Make sure your sleep environment is as inviting and comfortable as possible. Try to stick to a regular sleep schedule, discontinuing screen use at least an hour before bedtime. Use black-out curtains to block out streetlights and add soft, plush bedding to help can set the mood for a restful night’s sleep.

Sunrise Alarm

Waking up early can be hard, especially when it’s still dark outside. A sunrise alarm slowly brightens a room over a set time, much like a natural sunrise, helping you wake gently. Get one equipped with an auditory alert to ensure you wake up on time.

Smart Light Bulbs

For those winter days where natural sunlight is lacking, color-changing smart light bulbs offer a full spectrum of light options,  including daylight, to help you feel more alert, energized, and focused throughout the day.

Exercise and Nutrition

Healthy habits can help relieve stress and anxiety while improving boosting mood and self-esteem. Keep healthy, easily accessible food on hand, drink plenty of water, a commit to getting at least 30 minutes of exercise a day.

Fresh Air

Head outside for at least 10 minutes a day to get some fresh air and vitamin D – nature’s mood enhancer. Try a morning or lunch-time walk, but don’t forget to dress for the weather.

Refresh Your Space

Whether it’s a fresh coat of paint on your walls, rearranging existing furniture, or adding something new, sometimes the slightest change to a room can improve mood and help you feel more comfortable at home.

Greenery

Houseplants not only brighten up a space, they can reduce stress, improve mood, and make the indoor air you breath healthier. How’s that for a mood enhancer!

Do you know what else can spoil your mood during these cold winter months? A spike in your heating bills or no indoor heat at all.
