The winter quietly knocking to our doors: the nights are longer and the days are shorter. When leaving home is still dark, when coming back- is already dark. Lack of daylight could decrease level of our happiness to the bottom line. We could become more stressed; we could struggle with anxiety and depression. It’s been said that more women than men suffer Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Also in present market situation we could add to it stress at work, money related stress and so on.
But good mental wellbeing does not mean being constantly happy and never feeling sad or worried but it does mean feeling able to cope and resilient when facing difficulties. Good mental health can also lead to good physical health.
Try to look after yourself this Autumn and Winter. You could avoid SAD and anxiety by doing several simple things: get your friend together, go for a long walk, and keep yourself active. Find something which will keep your mind occupied. Learn new skills- try to learn to cook, to play a musical instrument or a new language. Learn how to manage the stress level. It is easy to say all of this things but you will never know how is working as you don’t try yourself.
Don’t get the winter blues to beat you. Be first this year to fight!
