Staying Happy and Healthy in Winter

As someone who was born and raised in a tropical area, I never thought that such things really exists when my friends told me so. That is, until this year. It’s my 3rd winter in Bremen, and I’m feeling down. Am I suffering from winter depression?

I’m obviously in denial. I don’t want to believe in such things and I believe that happiness comes from within. It is not what the weather tells me but it is what I want to feel about myself.

So, luckily today I came across this two articles about staying healthy, and both mentioned the attitude change : smiling and positive change. I especially like this part from the article:

  • If there is no sun in the mornings, make your own. Try upbeat music, brightly colored dishes, anything that will help put you in a “sunny” mood.
  • Wear bright colors. Fighting off Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is partly about doing whatever you can to bring happy sunny color into your life. The clothes you wear are a great way to do that.

Cheers to smiling and happy colored clothes!!
