Feeling SAD this Winter?

If like me you hate the cold, you probably find the “magical” crunch of snow less romantic and more… horrifying.

However, significant changes in your mood and behavior when the seasons change may mean you are experiencing seasonal affective disorder (SAD).

You’re not alone. As winter casts its chilly shadow, many individuals find themselves grappling with this phenomenon. Characterized by a dip in mood and energy levels during the sun-deprived months, this condition can significantly impact one’s well-being. However, my doctor recently recommended The Sunshine Vitamin as a way of supplementing the role the sun plays on our health. After all, if you can’t make your own, store bought is fine, right? šŸ˜‰

Vitamin D is instrumental in regulating mood and supporting overall mental health. Research suggests that adequate levels of this vitamin can positively influence serotonin levels in the brain, a neurotransmitter associated with feelings of happiness and positivity. Our body produces adequate levels of this when our skin is exposed to the sun, however we lack this ability in cloudier weather.

Vitamin D also strengthens our immune systems, which is especially important in these colder months.

Take care of yourselves, and have a wonderfully warm winter! šŸ™‚
