The winter is here and it is the time that the day's are shorter and you are spending more time indoors. Sometimes your mind will wander and you can find yourself in a very depressed mood. The holidays are upon us and it can also be a source of your depression because maybe you cannot afford to get all the things that you wanted for your family.
Those of us who have lost a loved one will start to remember the good times and we will find ourselves grieving. I find that the best ways is to light your home more during these times and also find ways to keep yourself busy so that you do not have much time to get in this state of mind.
Spending quality time with love ones will help so much during this time. I am so happy that we are now afforded with resources such as; Skype, so we can communicate and see family members who may live in another state or country.
I surround myself with good music in my home and it seems to uplift me. Don't allow yourself to feel alone and by yourself during the winter. If the weather is okay outside, get out and go to the local mall and socialize and try to meet new people.
People who are my age or older are losing more and more family members and that can make you feel depressed and isolated.
If you are homebound because of disability, get online and find some interesting people to talk to and even start yourself a hobby to keep you going.
You and I are going to beat this and make this the best winter ever.
