NEED HELP? 1-800-273-8255 TXT "CTL" to 741741
Hey everyone! I wanted to check in, and see how everyone is dealing with the seasonal changes (getting dark at 4pm!)
I know for myself, I tend to feel down and reclusive during this time of year. Knowing this, i try to take extra care of myself until the spring. I found that early morning walks (before work) along with nutrition and vitamin D supplements help to combat the seasonal effects. (Please discuss with your doctor before making any medical changes.)
Other suggestions that I have heard to work are light lamps. They help to simulate the sunlight we are missing during the colder months. (http://northernlighttechnologies.com/)
I have found that small, easy lifestyle changes have helped me to make the most of the darker seasons, and keep me productive and on track.
Has anyone else had any experience with seasonal mood changes?
