Long, dark, cold days got you feeling down and dreaming of spring? Here are some tips to defeat the winter doldrums:
• Exercise! Consistently release endorphins by sticking to a routine. Hot yoga and kickboxing are fun ways to warm up.
• Eat! Add servings of mood-boosting omega 3 and vitamin B12 to your meals. Salmon has both, and Greek yogurt topped with walnuts and chia seeds is a good snack.
• Breathe! Diffuse citrus essential oils. The scent of citrus may help relieve anxiety and is reminiscent of warmer days.
• Get outside! Soak up vitamin D and appreciate the winter scenery.
