How to Ease Winter Blues

Tips for Easing Winter Blues

If your mood drops each year along with the temperature and you can’t seem to motivate yourself to get out of bed, you might be suffering from the winter blues. While you may be tempted to burrow under the covers and stay put until spring, there are some things you can do to put a smile back on your face.

Here’s how you can ease winter blues:

Get your steps in

Exercise is one of the best ways to boost your endorphins (those feel-good chemicals) anytime of the year, including the winter. Aim to log four to six 30- to 45-minute sweat sessions each week. For a bonus mood-boosting tip, do a couple of those workouts outdoors in the morning, when the sun is at its brightest.

Eat healthy

Between the holidays and the winter blues, it’s easy to overdo it on the calories in the winter. Aim for plenty of fruits, vegetables and lean proteins to stay healthier and feel happier.

Let the light in

When possible, sit near a bright, sunny window. If you have tree branches blocking your light, consider trimming them back. You could also try sitting by a light box for 30 minutes each day.

Book yourself a vacation

Booking a vacation will give you something to look forward to in the colder months. Just planning a trip can help lift your mood. Bonus points if it’s a warm, beachy destination!
