Seasonal Depression

Seasonal depression is definitely real.

The winter season is officially here. As I sit here writing this it’s snowing in GA!

Seasonal depression is definitely real. For me it usually comes on when its rainy and cold. I find it hard to get out of bed and to be in a good mood. If you feel this way around the holidays or in the winter, you’re definitely not alone.

Once I figured out why I was feeling unmotivated, sad or alone in these situations it actually made me feel better. I realized that this feeling was totally normal and a lot of people go through it.

Because of a combination of different wellness tactics I have incorporated recently, I haven’t really experienced the usual symptoms this winter. And if you know me, this is HUGE!

What I like to do to combat season depression:

  • Choosing happiness everyday
    • This idea might sound crazy, but it has turned my life around in 2017
  • Consistent exercise
    • This season is not an excuse to forget goals. I need to sweat at least 3X a week to feel myself. This can also be a great way to connect with friends during the holidays instead of meeting up for drinks. I went to yoga with my friend Liz the other day and it was a blast!
  • Choosing to have alone time rather than isolating myself
    • I love to be alone, it’s how I recharge. In the past I would isolate myself from friends which lead me to feel even sadder. Now, when I need alone time I realize I could be doing other things but I choose to recharge and have that time to myself.

 

Do you suffer with seasonal depression? If so, I feel you and wish you the best this season! Moral of the story-keep up with your goals & routine during this busy/stressful time of the year.

Happy Holidays!

  1. I’ve always struggled with seasonal depression, which I’ve always thought was strange because fall and winter are actually my favorite seasons! It’s something about the changing of the weather that leaves me feeling drained and sad. It’s always great to know that you’re not alone in your feelings! Thanks for sharing, Meg!

  2. I’m pretty bummed this year as 2017 has been a struggle and Christmas will really be a non-event. My spirits are lifted knowing that my children are all healthy and happy so I look forward to 2018 with optimism.

  3. Why await two months or even more before a certified copy
    will be released. During this period Pune was thought
    to be city of learning and also the Deccan college starfted the
    educational movement in Pune. So, thhe place caters towards the needs of party animals as well as the equirements of seekers or solitude.

  4. Not surprisingly, such a rhinoplasty is not just inexpensive, bbut
    fast. It’s actually more difficult to fix the
    damage inside the event that they have gone
    on very long. Thee individual tyat I quoted at the outset oof these statements have actually done a
    very good job during the last year and a half, using social networking
    to construct a big and responsive list for himself.
