Six Affordable Essentials To Combat The Winter Blues

It's that time of year once more. The days grow shorter, and the nights stretch longer, leaving us feeling fatigued, lacking motivation, and somewhat downcast. If you can relate to this, then lend an ear. I've grappled with seasonal depression myself, so I have some valuable tips to share that have guided me through the winter months.

1. Illuminate Your Days: Invest in a lightbox or a few! The National Alliance on Mental Illness recommends spending 30 minutes under the gentle glow of a light therapy box. These are a necessity and remarkably easy to incorporate into your routine. Another beneficial option is red light therapy. You can discover excellent lightboxes on Amazon, priced around $60 or less.

2. Steer Clear of Alcohol: We're all aware of the harm alcohol can inflict on our bodies, from the empty calories to the cellular damage, not to mention its profound downbeat effect. The year 2022 presents a prime opportunity to begin cutting back on alcohol consumption.

3. Embrace Nature: The healing power of nature is undeniable! Discover a nearby walking path or a peaceful park to unwind in. Keep it uncomplicated.

4. Limit Social Media: Social media can be captivating but also a source of negativity. Make a winter commitment to channel your inner hermit. Slip into your coziest socks, cocoon yourself in a soft blanket, savor hot tea, and read a book each month to relish those winter evenings.

5. Harness the Strength of Supplements: Consider adding Strength Test to your daily routine—yes, ladies, this is beneficial for you too. In fact, women are four times more susceptible to Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Strength Test naturally boosts your testosterone production and provides a hefty dose of 6,000 IUs of Vitamin D. Low testosterone can lead to low energy, a lack of motivation, and a diminished mood. So, if you're over 30 and have a heartbeat, consider incorporating Strength Test into your regimen.

6. Stay Active: Physical activity is paramount for your physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. It's also crucial for your lymphatic system, acting as a filter for toxins in your body.


So, there you have it—my six affordable essentials to combat those winter blues! I hope these suggestions prove helpful. As always, feel free to reach out to if you have any questions we can assist you with!
