I don’t know about you but I cannot fool myself one more minute about winter not being here even though the equinox has not yet happened.
I want to give you some strategies to deal with this change in seasons.
First let me remind you in spite of the cold weather, blustery winds and snow, Tis the Season to be Jolly!
I noticed a long time ago that the Holidays kind of sneak up on you. One minute you’ve got time and the next they are here and gone! So, I want to share my personal wish for you to have some time to enjoy, experience and feel love during the coming weeks.
It’s no secret that some people find the coming weeks stressful so a little planning and time/resource allocation goes a long way!
It’s also no secret that this is the time when S.A.D. strikes especially in the colder climes. Seasonal Affective disorder effects some 20% of us with a smaller percentage succumbing to full on depression.
Then of course there are the usual suspects in the viral arena, less daylight to play outside and post-holiday funk!
Tip 1: Do not be afraid to up your fish oil dose!
Tip 2: Watch your nutrition- its easy to eat a lot of calories without a lot of nutrition! This is a great time of year to recommit to taking your Multi Vite Daily!
Tip 3: Try not to alter you habits too much. This would include sleep habits eating habits, exercise habits and budget habits. It’s always fun to let go a bit but the key phrase is “a bit”. Ironically the healthier you get the less you will tolerate abusing your body. This sounds counter-intuitive but it’s true!
Tip 4: Play outside!!! Layers, proper use of daylight and sun exposure can do wonders to keep you feeling good while you wait for the inevitable warmth to return.
Tip 5: Limit your refined carb/sugar intake or at least try not to increase it!!!
Ironically the sugar “rush” is followed by a long term crash, one that can negatively affect your moods. If you need help with over indulgence this works wonders!!!
Tip 6: Set a specific goal for the next 6 weeks and maybe even start your resolutions for the new year! I plan on really digging into Spanish since I need it in Mexico at our stem cell clinic. What will you do with the next 6 weeks.
To sum it up its all about being proactive so you have maximum enjoyment in the coming weeks.
And remember, there is no reason to be S.A.D!!!!
