I don’t know about you but this year the seasonal depression is really weighing on me. This isn’t something I remember feeling too much of in the past. But while the days are getting longer, it’s usually dark by the time I get home or if it’s not it’s dark within a few minutes. This makes it difficult to want to go out at night, and the lack of sunlight definitely plays with my emotions. Many many adults and children suffer from seasonal depression this time of year. Winter blues can occur when daylight hours are limited, there is no sunshine, and you are in the midst of a post-Christmas slump. There are certain foods that experts recommend that can help improve your mood and ease off your depressive symptoms if you need a little boost.
Are you feeling the winter blues and wanting to get a bit of a pick-me-up? Our friends over at Wren Kitchens have collated some of the best mood-boosting foods, to help beat the winter blues. Try adding these seven foods to your diet to help you get through the next few months. And then daylight savings time will be here soon, and before you know it sunset will be at 9 pm. I cannot wait. Until then I know what I’m having for dinner. In addition, take the time to get outside even if it’s only for a few minutes. Take care of yourself and know that this is only a season, the light is coming!
