Winter blues can hit anyone. Hibernation is what the animals do; as humans we are just suppose to layer up and keep moving. But, the feeling of fatigue it hard to deny on cold dreary days. Seasonal depression is a real and serious condition that affects many during the winter months. And, if you feel you are suffering from seasonal depression you should call your doctor.

If you just need a pick me up on a sunless day, pick a comfy spot and watch a comedy, one you already know, that will make you laugh. Play a funny game with your family. Tell old joke or funny stories with your partner. Laughing will release the pleasant feelings in your brain, that in return will make you feel pleasant and able to combat the cold.

If you are feeling tired with no energy, oddly, watch an exercise video or an action flick. Solely watching, without partaking in action will make your body react as if it is involved. Your body will actually burn off calories and you will feel more energy. And, if it is a workout video, you may decide to take part in the workout or turn off the t.v. and turn on the music and dance, melting more calories away.

Emotions have a deep impact on how we can handle the season. Keeping your emotions in check during the winter season is important, so remember to laugh and get that heart pumping to keep your brain pumping. Seek medical help if you help with season changes.
