WHAT IS YOUR HAPPINESS? WINTER BLUES BY LISA CYPERS KAMEN

By Lisa Cypers Kamen

With winter just around the corner and colder temperatures in sight, you may be feeling what can be termed the winter blues or Seasonal Affective Disorder. However, you can find happiness despite these feelings. How is this possible? If you have holiday plans with your family – which can include your extended family – that gives you something to look forward to and can bring you happiness. Also, you can reflect with your family on the things you are thankful for during the Thanksgiving season as well. What other ways can you beat those winter blues?

You might try a brisk walk or you could take up a winter sport. Just remember to adapt your exercise to winter conditions. Exercise releases endorphins, which keep you in a good mood and the effects can last long after your workout is done.fall leaves

Learn something new by taking up a new hobby. This will make you feel good during the long months of winter.

Don’t keep yourself from friends and family. Keep interacting with those you care about!

Get some sun, even if it’s only a little bit. If you keep your shades up, you can bring a little bit of sunlight in to the room, too.

Feed your mind with things that are positive. Avoid negative news stories or books. This seems easy but you’ll be surprised what a difference it makes.

These are just a few of the things you can do to help conquer those winter blues. Try to enjoy winter as much as you can, even though it may seem difficult- those few months will pass before you know it!
