How to Cure the Winter Blues

Cure the Winter Blues | Fort Wayne, IN

While this season is usually filled with joy, many people have a hard time feeling happy and go through the “winter blues.” This can often be caused by the dark mornings, cold weather, and early sunsets. If you want to help overcome your seasonal sadness, try a few of these tips we at Kelley Buick GMC suggest.

Exercise

With at least 20 minutes of vigorous exercise four times a week, you may feel less depressed. While you can join a gym, you can also get exercise by riding your bike, running through your neighborhood, or following along with some online exercise videos.

Stick to a Schedule

The lingering darkness in the morning can make it hard to wake up. However, by sticking to a sleep routine, even on the weekends, it can help regulate your body and mind. Plan at least seven hours of sleep each night.

Watch a Funny Movie

Laughter really can be the best medicine. Queue up a list of your favorite comedies and spend an evening laughing.

Enjoy a Cozy Treat

Make yourself a warm mug of rich hot cocoa. Not only will it taste delicious, but the ingredients in natural cocoa powder can help boost your mood. Other foods like fish, eggs, fruits, and vegetables can help give you healthy energy.

You can also get a thrill by driving a truck or SUV at Kelley Buick GMC. Take one for a spin and see how fun driving can be.
