8 Steps to Beat Winter Blues

For some of us winter is synonymous with irritability, decreased energy, and changes in appetite which lasts till the spring. Fix up a plan of mood boosters to overcome the weather induced depression.
In the cold and cloudy weather of winter, many of us notice tiredness, a bit of weight gain, difficulty getting out of bed and bouts of “the blues”.

What should you do

  1. Daily exercise has been shown to be helpful, particularly when done outdoors
  2. For those who tend to crave sweets during the winter, eating a balanced diet may help one’s mood. Conversely, as the mood improves, craving for sweets declines.
  3. Orange color keeps negative feelings at bay. Keep more of it around you.
  4. Stay hale and hearty this winter by soaking in the sunshine and going for brisk walks. Enjoy the varied fruits and vegetables easily available during this season to build your immunity.
  5. Spend some time everyday soaking the sunlight.
  6. Drink water. We get irritated when we are thirsty.
  7. Come what may get some exercise and establish meaningful social contact. (read meeting with people)
  8. Get the zing of orange in your life. Paint a wall in orange, get a mantle piece in this colour or drape an orange sari to beat the blue.
