Winter blues and depression are a common occurrence this time of year. Especially this year with the frigid temperatures and snow that keeps us inside. With the warmer weather coming over the next couple of days, make sure you and your loved ones find a way to spend some time out in the fresh air and sunlight. Research shows that being outside and soaking in the rays of sunlight improve your mood and decrease stress. Whether you take a walk in your neighborhood or at a park, ride a bike, or even just find a comfortable seat outside, you will find a sense of peace and joy in that moment. However, it’s not only in the moment, that feeling you get will make biological changes in your body that will improve your overall well-being and mood for days, maybe even weeks or more. It’s the simple things in life that make it greater, so take advantage of them!
