The Winter Doldrums (“WD”) typically occur during the darker winter months. It is most likely caused by shorter daylight hours which cause shifts in the body’s biological clock and hypothalamus.
The winter blues are most severe during November, December, January and February.
Some symptoms include: Anxiety, Depression, Lethargy, Loss of sex drive, Mood changes, Over-eating, Increased alcohol consumption, Sleep problems, Weakened immune system, Restlessness.
Hence the need for natural daylight!! Exercise pumps up your endorphins, your brain’s feel-good neurotransmitters. Start your day with a boost of protein through eggs or a superfood smoothie.
Feed your body healthy fats such as avocados, nuts and seeds, nut butters, guacamole. Lean proteins and essential fatty acids can boost levels of serotonin.
