Beat the winter blahs
Exhaustion and stress from endless holiday parties, late-night shopping excursions, poor diet and exercise and houseguests can leave some people feeling depressed, tired and unhappy.
Here are a few easy ways to beat the winter blues:
- Eat a balanced diet and exercise. Caring for your body will ensure overall health and improve your mood.
- Get enough sleep. With all that activity, it’s easy to get away from a normal sleeping pattern. Be sure to get 7-9 hours of sleep.
- Do something that makes you smile. Whether it’s spending time with your family, finding a new hobby or just getting out of the house, do something enjoyable.
