It’s no secret that winter can cause a dip in mood. Weeks of short days and little sunshine can lead to everything from slight moodiness to a form of clinical depression called seasonal affective disorder (SAD).
Symptoms can include sadness, depression, low energy, weight changes, and lack of motivation.
Here are five tips to help improve your mood this winter:
1. Seek out vitamin D sources.
Lack of vitamin D has been strongly associated with depression symptoms. Eat more vitamin D–rich foods, like fatty fish, egg yolks, some mushrooms, milk, and foods fortified with vitamin D.
2. Prioritize physical activity.
Choose a form of activity that will warm you up such as Hot Yoga, Swimming in a heated pool.
3. Choose mood-boosting foods.
Highly refined carbs and sugar can wreak havoc on your blood sugar level, which can leave you feeling cranky. So go for mood-boosting nutrients food, like oily fish, chicken, turkey, spinach, kale, whole grains and vegetables.
4. Be mindful of screen time.
Especially during the winter months when we may be more prone to feelings of depression, limiting screen time can have a big impact.Switch up scrolling through your phone at night for a good book, journal time, or even a brief nightly yoga routine.
5. Plan an adventure.
Plan your next holiday trip or start researching your next adventure – just thinking about it will be magic for your mood.
