Winter Blues

The Editorial Team have come together for the last time in 2023 to share how they overcome their Winter Blues as the days get shorter and colder.

⭐ How do you overcome winter blues? ⭐

👉 Taylor: Winter isn't always the easier time of year, especially when it's dark when you leave the house or get home later. Because of this, I really embrace the weekends... going out for walks and taking in all the sunlight that I miss so much! Having a lie-in and watching the sunrise is the best too :)

👉 Emily A: It can be tricky to keep going when it's so cold! I try to set my alarm 30 minutes earlier than usual so I can get myself in gear to get going...after a cosy lie-in that doesn't cost me any time!

👉 Madeleine: I try to embrace the opportunity to have cosy evenings instead of pressuring myself to go out in the cold and dark! Although it's important to still keep doing the things that make me happy, I try to make staying in fun too. 

👉 Emily T: When the days get colder and darker, it can be hard to stay motivated. I try to find warm and bright spaces to study to improve my focus! It’s also important to make the most of what sunlight we have. On a weekend, I love spending time outside - going for a walk always boosts my mood as well as giving me some much needed Vitamin D!

Can you think of any others? Share with the team - we'd love to hear from you!
