Do you suffer from low mood & anxiety during the winter months? xxx

January 19, 2017

 

This time of year can be a total drag, we are often a bit flat (not to mention skint) after the festivities and spring can feel a long way off.

 If you tend to feel a bit under the weather (that saying rings very true!) then have a read of this incredibly simple, practical advice J

 

David Brudo, co-founder of personal development and mental wellbeing app Remente (remente.com), says:

 

“It isn’t uncommon for winter to cause anxiety and low mood in people, largely due to the fact that it is dark and cold, and it can seem like there isn’t much to look forward to. One thing you can do, even though it may seem counter-intuitive, is to go outside. We don’t get enough vitamin D during this season so going out in the daylight can be very beneficial. You don’t have to spend a long time outside, just a trip to a coffee shop or a quick stroll – the fresh air will clear your mind and help you to reboot.

 You should also try to dedicate some time each day to doing something you enjoy, whether it be hanging out with friends, exercising or watching your favourite TV programme. Setting time aside for fun will give you something to look forward to and help to ease anxiety. And if you are feeling overstretched, don’t be afraid to say no. Committing to too many things at once risks making you miss out on much needed rest which can leave you feeling sad and grumpy. There are also some great apps that can help to improve mental wellbeing, such as remente and headspace (headspace.com).”

 

 Sometimes it’s the most simple of things that can help the most isn’t it.

 Try to battle the hibernation instinct and do a little something to make yourself smile.

 

Good luck!

 

Lots of love and kind regards,
