Ever notice when it begins to get cold and dark that all you want to do is crawl into bed? Transitioning into the fall and winter months can be difficult so here are some of our tips to beat seasonal depression and to boost your mood!
There are certain studies that show lack of sunlight can cause Seasonal Affective Disorder, which usually occurs anywhere from late October to early April.
How to fix this? Look into buying a light “happy” or therapy box for light all of the time!
Extreme rain conditions, as well as storm scan bring out the worst in people. Research shows that in areas that it rains heavily, the people who reside there are very aggressive than in areas that do not have heavy rainfall often.
A good strategy to be less aggressive when it rains is to try yoga or meditation. This can be done either at home or in a local studio!
Rain can also cause physical pain due to the reduction in atmospheric pressure which can lead to pressure on nerves and joints in the human body. Try stretching for 15 minutes in the morning or try yoga as well to stretch your muscles and avoid joint and nerve friction.
