Be a ray of sunshine at home
You must have heard it many times: the sun is amazingly important for our general well-being. Sunlight contains vitamin D, which has a major impact on your resilience and mood. There are far fewer hours of daylight in the winter, and that light is less intense too. This makes us gloomy and sleepy.
What now? Either you face the cold to get a good 20 minutes of natural sunlight, or you imitate that light with an artificial source. You can get optical systems full of LED lights whose frequency exactly matches that of sunlight.
Improve your sleep quality
Healthy air is crucial for a good night's sleep. Opening a window every now and then is not a bad idea, and houseplants can improve the air quality too. Your best option for a greater impact is an air purifier.
Embrace your morning ritual
All beginnings are difficult, so you might not be looking forward to a new morning routine. And yet, it can do wonders for your inner peace.
As we have known for some time, regular exercise is one of the best ways to feel good physically and mentally. So find a walking buddy, plan a regular day at the swimming baths or get your bike out of the rack to tackle the winter blues.
Whichever option you choose, exercise gives you a boost of adrenaline, endorphins and oxygen. Read: more energy during the day and a better night's sleep!
Prevent those day-to-day worries
Those little irritations get to you more in the winter. This is why you should give yourself as much peace of mind at home as you can. Technology can provide many advantages here… but there is sometimes a flipside. This could be from stress, including from having to make extra choices, or technophobia. Older generations in particular find the introduction of new devices very stressful.
