You may find yourself surrounded by fall time wear and colder weather, and it may affect your mood after a while. After all, what happened to summer time? It seemed to banish without a trace. However, instead of letting the colder weather and changes get you down, show your mood and the weather whose boss. Implement small changes into your life daily and pretty soon you’ll be your happy self again. You don’t want your friends and family members catching on to your seasonal sadness!
Stock up on Vitamins –
Part of staying healthy and maintaining a happy mood is by taking your daily vitamins, which includes the important ones such as Vitamin C, B, D, and more. Vitamin D is especially important because during the fall and winter seasons you may not see the sun as much, which means your body won’t be getting enough sunshine. Sunshine affects your mood, which is why you may need to take Vitamin D to continue smiling.
Another vitamin you may not have thought of taking is the supplement horse chestnut. Horse chestnut helps reduce the likelihood of getting varicose veins as you age and developing other circulatory problems. Plus, if you suffer from PMS or other menstrual issues like most women do from time to time, horse chestnut is known to reduce the tiredness, pain, and water retention that goes along with your monthly period. Stay happy by treating your mood swings with vitamins that will help improve your daily living and also improve your outlook on life simultaneously.
Make Plans and Participate in Delightful Activities –
Even though it is cold outside doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go out from time to time. Make plans with your friends to a see a movie or take your kids to go sledding and laugh as you watch them sled down the hill. There are numerous activities to participate in during the cooler seasons and if it means being more creative, put your thinking cap on and come up with new hobbies that you’ve been meaning to try. Staying active will keep you smiling and also make you glad that you’re choosing to be happy even when the cold seasons make you feel otherwise.
Look Forward to the Holidays –
For most people the holidays create a contagious cheer, so it should bring a smile to your face as well! Look forward to holiday festivities, drinking hot apple cider, and decorating the Christmas tree, to name just a few exciting holiday events to enjoy. All of these activities are always nice to experience, so look forward to them with joy in your heart. If the holidays bring back some unfortunate bad memories, recreate new ones that will bring happiness to your home and those around you.
