5 Ways To Beat The Winter Blues

It’s no secret that winter’s coming and for a lot of people the changing weather can also bring unwanted changes in mood too. Here are some ways that I think you might find helpful to beat those winter blues

Don’t let the weather stop you- Even though staying in and doing nothing in winter sounds more appealing than going out it can also lead to you feeling more depressed. Instead try to go out even if you don’t feel like it and hang out with people you enjoy spending time with. I don’t know about you but spending time with someone with good vibes always makes me feel better.

Don’t give up- Don’t let the weather make you feel like you have to give up on yourself. Keeping doing your hair even though no one can see it under that gigantic beanie, keeping painting your nails and most importantly treat yourself like a priority because you are!

Yoga/meditation- Yoga and meditation helps me find peace and positivity whenever I feel like my energy is decreasing or like I’m feeling negative emotions. It doesn’t make my negative feelings disappear but helps me deal with them in a rational and positive way instead. Joining a yoga class or trying out a meditation app this winter might be helpful for you.

Take it easy- Even though going out and doing things is important, also remember to take some me time and treat yourself because it’s important to relax and just do nothing for a bit. It’s easy to get carried away with life and sometimes it feels like work is just piling on but taking a moment to just breathe is a great way to decrease the negative feelings and actually get work done without burning yourself out.

Seek professional help- If nothing seems to be working and you feel as though your depression is getting the best of you please remember to seek help from a professional because sometimes you need someone professionally trained to guide you and help you find the best way to beat your winter blues.

Winter (Guest Post)

Crimson embers of fire crackle,
Beneath the pale moon light.
The stars they twinkle like tiny freckles,
Upon the face of the night.

The sun awakens, from its slumbers,
Naked vegetation shivers with delight.
For they are scarce, they’re few in number,
Desperate for the light.

The season sets a spell of slumber,
Upon the many lives,
Of plants and animals growing fonder,
To sleeping day and night.

This too shall pass,
It just takes might,
Time will change,
The clock will strike.

A day will come,
Where we can surrender the fight,
Of surviving these testing hardships,
But until then. Goodnight.
