Many people experience a dip in their mood and energy levels during winter. This is referred to as the “winter blues.” Symptoms include feelings of sadness, lethargy, irritability, and difficulty concentrating and sleeping.
Fortunately, there are steps to overcome the winter blues.
Fresh air and exercise are essential, even when it’s cold outside. Going for a walk or run, doing some stretching, or even spending time in nature.
Practice good sleep habits, such as avoiding caffeine and electronics before bed, keeping your bedroom dark and quiet, and having a regular sleep schedule.
Make an effort to connect with others, even if it’s just over the phone or via video chat.
Take time for you. Read a book, take a bubble bath, bake cookies, or watch your favorite movie.
Don’t neglect your dental health. Remember to brush and floss regularly, and schedule a check-up with your dentist.
The winter blues are temporary; your teeth are permanent.
