Winter Blues

During the cold dreary winter months probably just after the holidays have all passed, and no sign of spring in sight, many people suffer from the winter blues. A feeling of tiredness, restlessness and maybe even depression.

Instead of feeling blue, why not try this remedy? Do an act of kindness for someone else. Research studies have shown that a random act of kindness can release dopamine and seratonin, which are both neurotransmitters in the brain. These chemicals in the body along with endorphins are natural occuring human opiates that result in lifting your spirits. In addition to your act of kindness, vitamin D also helps boost your mood. the recommended daily allowance of vitamin D is 400 IU. you can get it through eating just a 4 oz piece of salmon!

if depression or anxiety increases, or you have desperate thoughts you should see your doctor right away.
