How to Avoid the Winter Blues

February 16, 2012 at 5:36 pm Leave a comment

Although we’re halfway through the winter, the scarce sunlight and shortened winter days seem to make everyone tired and yearning for the days of spring. Many people are affected by a real and serious condition: Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) or the “winter blues.”

Whether you experience SAD or are just growing weary of the season, the good news is there are ways you can avoid the cold weather funk:

  • Stay hydrated by drinking more water. People are just as susceptible to dehydration in cold weather as in the summer.
  • Find a hobby like reading or try do-it-yourself crafts.
  • Take up a winter sport you’ve always wanted to try like skiing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing or ice skating.
  • Rearrange your diet by adding more fruits and vegetables and monitoring portion sizes.
  • Try going to bed earlier and waking up earlier.
