The Effects of Winter on Mental Health

 Speaking openly, the cold weather has had an impact on my mental health. I'm wondering if others have felt the same. Here are some interesting facts about the science of how the weather can affect our moods from the National Alliance on Mental Illness and some simple things we can do to drive off the blues.

I enjoy candles. What techniques do you employ to fight off the winter doldrums?

    Little late to the party Geoff but I try to make sure to get some physical activity before my day starts whatever the weather. I usually go swimming at my local pool which has a spa facility which helps me feel like I've accomplished something before starting my working day.

    No problemo. Since this post, I have fallen out of the swimming routine funnily enough. Taking winter as it comes.
