Newborn photographer Cypress TX, Keeping Mental Heath during Cold Season

You'll notice certain changes in the weather, as well as in yourself, as we embark on the fall and winter months. The days become shorter due to daylight savings, causing us to change our clocks back 1 hour if you live in Canada that is. You will also begin to feel the colder months approaching as you cozy up with your hot chocolates, teas, and lattes. Have you paid more attention to your overall mental well-being during this time of the year? I know with the Covid pandemic many people have been stuck indoors working from home, laid off, are stay-at-home parents/caregivers or for health and personal reasons prefer not to go out much unless it is for the essentials. This can have an impact on your mental health, causing depression and apathy. A change in seasons can have a detrimental impact on a person's emotions and moods for a variety of reasons. Increased time spent indoors can cause physiological changes in the brain, which can substantially impact your mood and outlook. In addition, less sunlight may cause a drop in serotonin, which can lead to depression.

Low Mood During the Season

During the winter or holiday season, many people experience poor moods. Anxious or gloomy thoughts can strike without notice, whether they're triggered by unreasonable expectations, excessive stress, family strife or the loss of a loved one or family member. A bad mood might lead to mental health problems. It can also have negative bodily implications.

The following are some of the signs and symptoms of seasonal depression:

● Negative or reprehensible thoughts

● Fog in the mind

● Avoiding social connection on purpose Overeating and Emotional Eating

● Periods of fasting and overeating

● Having trouble concentrating and remembering things

Because many people dismiss these symptoms as just being depressed, they may not receive the care they require, which can lead to major mental or emotional problems. The good news is that there are a variety of natural strategies to improve your mental health and alleviate the symptoms of the winter blues. Here are five ways to improve your mental health during colder months to support brain and body wellness:

1. Keep Yourself Active
