As seasons change, do you ever look up find yourself feeling down, sad, depressed etc...for what seems like no reason? While many people truly suffer from depression, there's something else lingering around that hits others only during colder months of the year.
A few years ago I did. It seemed like every winter I just didn't feel like myself and it came out the blue. As kids are spending so much more time at home this year, I started wondering how they may be affected by what I learned is Seasonal affective disorder. Many are not just home learning, some don't get the opportunity to spend much time outside either.
I've helped myself cope with SAD by being intentional about getting outdoors even during the colder months and it has made a world of difference. Whether you find yourself or kids affected by SAD or not, I want to encourage to bring the outdoors into your routine.
