10 Ways To Fight The Winter Blues

The heart of Winter is here, the days are short, the sun hides and you find yourself feeling a little down or not motivated. This is what we call the winter blues.

“Winter blues is a general term, not a medical diagnosis. It’s fairly common, and it’s more mild than serious. It usually clears up on its own in a fairly short amount of time,” says Dr. Matthew Rudorfer, a mental health expert at NIH. The so-called winter blues are often linked to something specific, such as stressful holidays or reminders of absent loved ones. The winter blues can also be caused by lack of natural sunlight from being inside more often.
