This is the time of year when many of us start to feel a little down and sad. This can be called the winter blues or seasonal affective disorder (if the symptoms meet a certain criteria and have been present for at least 2 years). I’m not a huge fan of diagnoses, so call it what you like. The important thing is to understand how to feel better!
I was recently interviewed by Frederick Uncut on the subject of Seasonal Affective Disorder.
You can use many lifestyle medicine techniques such as sleep, nutrition, activity, light, nature, social connection, your thinking and more to make real changes in how you feel during the winter. You can get the presentation I gave at several community events is below. It’s much more fun in person because you get goodies and we do some fun meditation, but this will get you started until you can join me in person or via webinar :)
Click one of the buttons below to read about the winter blues or to have me read it to you :) One you take in the information, pick one or two strategies to implement, and leave a comment to let me know how it worked for you. Here’s to a happy winter season!
