Ideas and resources to enhance your life.
When winter arrives and the days become shorter and colder, it can affect our mood, a condition referred to as Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD. To take care of ourselves during this time, it is crucial to focus on activities that make us happy and relaxed. This could mean spending time doing things we love, like reading, drawing, or baking, as well as spending quality time with friends and family. Exercise, even a short walk, can boost our mood by releasing feel-good chemicals in our brains. Taking care of our bodies by eating healthy foods, getting enough sleep, and drinking water is also really important. By paying attention to both our physical and mental well-being, we can better cope with the challenges that winter might bring and ensure we stay happy and healthy.
