Beat the Winter Blues
As the days get shorter, darker and colder, many of us experience a shift in mood that you might hear called “the winter blues.” You can start to feel like you’ve lost your energy and have a hard time getting excited about things, or you may feel down in general. Here are some tips to help boost your mood and fight those winter blues!
Write down a list of 5 positive mental health habits you can engage with daily. (EX: making your bed, drinking water, practice deep breathing)
Take a break from your work, bundle up and go for a walk. Regular exercise and sunlight can reduce stress and improve your mood.
Limit Social Media
Too much time on social media can spike feelings of anxiety, depression and loneliness. Try to limit the amount of time online when you can.
Plan your week
Organize your week in a google calendars or a planner. Plan activities that bring you feelings of happiness and achievement.
Surrounding yourself with positive people that make you feel good is important for your mental health.
Whether it’s helping around the house or in the community, helping others can increase positive emotions.
The proper amount of sleep is essential to your well-being. Limit screen time before bedtime and try to get 8 hrs of sleep.
