5 ways to boost your mood this winter

Tuesday, January 27, 2015

With their cold, short days, the winter months can make us want to hibernate under blankets until spring’s arrival. Here are 5 mood-boosting ways to fend off the winter blues:

  1. Get outside during daylight hours.
  2. Exercise regularly, indoors or out. Give cross-country skiing, snowshoeing or ice-skating a try.
  3. Socialize. Get together with friends, or at least call them.
  4. Plan events you can look forward to.
  5. Keep reminding yourself the days are getting longer.

The negative feelings are far more extreme for people with Seasonal Affective Disorder, depression caused by insufficient natural sunlight. Treatment options for people with SAD include counseling, medicine and the therapeutic use of light. If you can’t shake the bad feelings, call NewBridge at (973) 839-2520.
