How you can safely and effectively combat the winter blues.

It happens every year during the winter months: the days get shorter, the temperatures drop, and we tend to spend more time indoors than normal. The colder weather can affect our moods, appetites, and even sleeping patterns. While some people embrace the winter season, it can be a trying time for people struggling to combat seasonal depression.

Winter doesn’t have to bring you down.

There are many factors that may contribute to worsening depression symptoms around this time of year. There’s even a name for winter depression: seasonal affective disorder, or SAD. SAD is a form of depression triggered by the change in seasons that can take a serious toll on your mental health. Less natural light can lead to many of the seasonal depression symptoms you may be feeling.

Some people find it dismal to wake up in what appears to be the dead of night, and not leave work until after the sun has gone down. The cold weather can make you want to stay inside where it’s warm and cozy, at the expense of normal social activities. And those in particularly snowy regions often dread the tedium and treachery of shoveling snow and navigating treacherous roads. All of these factors can have a real impact on your mood.

On top of that, the impending holiday season can increase anxiety and stress for many people. Stress from Friends and family might be magnified with the approaching festivities and the perceived pressure to have a “happy” holiday. Personal calendars are likely to be filling up with parties or other commitments, putting a strain on free time to relax and recharge.

No matter the reasons, if you notice your mood worsening, it can be disheartening and distressing – especially if it’s something you tend to battle year after year when the seasons change. But this year can be different. You can safely beat the winter blues and go back to enjoying your life with Alpha-Stim®.
