We hung onto the fall as long as possible, but the time has changed, the sun is clocking out early and winter has officially arrived. For some, the colder months are a crisp and welcome change, but to many, the winter’s darkness and cold can seep into our everyday moods.
The Winter Blues, meaning the sadness and lowness we sometimes feel when the weather turns chilly and the sun goes down early, are pretty common and you shouldn’t feel alone.
These tips can help you learn how to avoid seasonal depression and how to battle the Winter Blues so your winter can be brighter and your mood can stay positive.
The other piece of advice we can give is this: you never really know what helps the Winter Blues, so try everything. Building a routine with plenty of variety is a great start to a happier season, and trying new things can keep you interested and inspired along the way.
If you need more information about how to avoid seasonal depression, consult a mental health professional.
