Starting Your Day on the Sunny Side

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) affects a lot of people, usually in the winter. There are a handful of tips and tricks to help manage this form of depression. An example is to increase Vitamin D intake. The best and cheapest form of Vitamin D is sunlight.

To start my day off right, I try to get outside for at least 10 minutes everyday. This allows me to get fresh air and sunlight, which are both natural mood boosters. However, it’s a lot harder to do in the wintertime, especially when the weather is cold and dark.

To still get my daily dose of sunlight I invested in a Lumi Light for light therapy. Light therapy is a way for me to obtain these previously mentioned benefits when nature is not cooperating during winter.

Besides getting more sunlight, what helps you manage depression in the winter? Comment below!
