Winter 2019 –
Beat the Cold Weather Blues
With winter 2019 officially here, many people can find themselves trying to beat the winter blues. For a few people, this sensitivity to the lack of sunlight can unfortunately be more than just wishing for spring.
Some people may benefit from these winter ‘blues’ tips:
- During the shorter days, our body naturally craves the daylight it’s missing. When the sun is out, do your best to sit by a window, keep the shades open or take a walk outside (if the sidewalks allow it). Others may require a therapeutic light box which can be highly effective.
- Exercising is as important for mental health in the winter as it is in the summer. While a gym’s bright lights are not always the most flattering, they can be ideal for boosting energy – and positivity.
- Now that the holidays are behind us, it is time to get back to our normal eating routines.Many people choose healthy living resolutions for the new year. This is the perfect time (and reason) to start taking a closer look at your sugar intake. Consider looking for more natural ways to beat those sweet cravings such as berries. Blueberries, raspberries and strawberries are excellent choices!
Have you ever taken a look at your winter wardrobe? Often, we tend to gravitate towards darker clothing. While dark colors do absorb heat, there is nothing wrong with throwing on a bright sweater, bold tie or something with a little color to brighten up your mood – and your face.
