SAD is something that has affected me for many years. Many may think its a new world bandwagon to jump on but for me, I have definitely noticed a decline in my mood come the winter months. Not that I actually feel sad as such but it extremely sleepy and almost hibernate over the cooler, darker months. My desire to do anything decreases massively and my intake of warm heavy foods increases, craving all things carbs. The last 2 years I have been implementing things into my life to try and curb those feelings so today I’m talking about SAD Syndrome Treatments.
SAD Syndrome Treatments
There are many ways we can make positive changes to our daily living over the darker months. Some are so easy to do and require no effort at all. This winter I have been taking a good multivitamin that includes vitamins b and d. I am also determined to factor some sort of exercise into my weekly planner be it a walk in the fresh air or the gym. There are also so many electrical items on the market to boost light. Including daylights, SAD lamps and alarm clocks that gently wake you with daylight over a set period of time meaning your not rudely awoken in a dark room. By implementing some of these into our daily lives it can hopefully have a positive impact on our wellbeing over the winter months. I for one know that by exercising it improves not only my mood but also my concentration and health.
