Some Help With Winter Blues for all you Affiliates
You only have to look outside to know we have officially entered the hard months of the year. So it’s goodbye to hot sun for a while and time to stock up on your vitamins to keep the dreaded colds at bay.
Many people don’t like this time of year, but remember it won’t last forever.
So, what can help you get through it and keep your sanity intact?
Some help with winter blues might be be appreciated so, here we go.
#1. Watch the Sugar.
Many people find a pull to sweeter, high calorie, high carb foods during the winter. It’s almost like insulation. Don’t underestimate the biological craving that takes over, it’s not just down to your poor willpower.
Keep an eye on your sugar intake because although you will initially get that lovely sugar high, there is the price of the drop which follows. You could find yourself in a binge cycle and emotionally this will not help you at all.
#2. Keep up the Exercise.
Don’t let the cold weather be an excuse not to get in your daily dose of exercise. Remember the recommended 150 minutes per week to keep you fit and don’t allow that to diminish just because it feels colder outside. And remember, even on cloudy and overcast days, your mood can benefit from exposure to sunlight.
#3. Wear Bright Colours.
In winter many people tend to wear black every day.
This is not good, particularly if you are prone to stress, worry and/or get depressed when the weather is cold. So try to make an effort to wear bright colours. You don’t have to go mad, but maybe a colourful scarf or tie can be enough to brighten your day.
Believe it or not, this little change can trick your brain into lightening up. Colour has more impact on your mood that you think.
#4. Take up a Project.
There’s no time like winter to start a home project, like de-cluttering the house or purging all the old clothes in your kids’ rooms. Not only can this help distract you from the awful weather outside, it can give you a sense of accomplishment during these months, something to feel good about. The bigger the project the better, perfect activity for the dreary months of the year.
#5. Stock up on Vitamin D
As we get most of our vitamin D from the sun, it’s a good idea to take a vitamin D supplement during the winter months. Many diseases are correlated with low vitamin D levels, especially depression.
Also certain foods are good sources of vitamin D, including cod liver oil, salmon, tuna, milk, yogurt, sardines and eggs. So make sure you include them in your diet.
So, go to it and do take care of yourselves!
