You're in that funk again. It's the melancholy playlists, spotty sleep schedules, disinterest in exercise and a heaping dose of laziness. You may even feel a little blue.
Clinically, they call it a lot of things like seasonal depression, seasonal affective disorder and more.
You just call it "YUCK", because that's exactly how it makes you feel.
What if we told you that you're not alone? Not at all. In fact, depending on where you live and how winter weather has shaped up, the blues have a pretty straightforward cause. If you think about it, waking up in the dark and driving to work before the sun comes up is pretty grim. Then, you go inside all day and maybe catch a glimpse of the gray sky out the corner window. It's cold. It's damp. Even the trees have lost their leaves as if to shrug their wooden shoulders and say, "meh". The glow of the laptop screen is draining your eyes and the fluorescent lamp above you clicks in and out all afternoon. You finally punch out and walk to your car in the cover of darkness yet again and begin the slouched voyage through traffic.
Netflix. Chill. Repeat.
If you're reading this, there's hopefully a little movie playing in your head with a tiny violin soundtrack in the background. Womp womp.
Beneath the blues, there are so many clues. Shorter days mean less time in the sun. Storms mean less sunlight, period. Colder temperatures make outdoor activities completely unattractive and so on. Much of it tracks back to a deficiency in Vitamin D - the sunshine vitamin. And without it, you'll experience less energy, more mood swings and all the other symptoms of YUCK!
You could sulk and wait it out or you can do something about it! Our Vitamin D spraymay be just the solution you need to restore balance, recharge your energy and inspire the little kickstart you dream of in the dead of winter. Simply spray the product under your tongue, allow it to dissolve and you're good to go!
Don't let YUCK keep you on the sidelines this winter. Spring is just around the corner, but there's fun to be had, progress to be made, and a fresh perspective within reach for all the days and hours in between.
Here's to finding the bright side (even on a gloomy winter day).
