Winter is heavy — but we can lighten it up


Back in Sweden after three years in northern Spain I had forgotten how REAL winter depression is at these northern latitudes! So off the top of my head, I begun a list of things to fight it off:

  • Be friendly with yourself and others
  • Connect with nature
  • Decide to be happy
  • Drink fresh water
  • Eat vitamin-rich foods. Berries, fruits and vegetables!
  • Go outdoors every day. Preferably more than once.
  • Journal
  • Jump or dance to energize. Even a few seconds count!
  • Make lists of happy things
  • Read something new and interesting
  • Smile
  • Take frequent breaks from draining work

What do you do to keep shining in the dark?
