The Effect Of Winter On Your Mood

Have you ever heard of the term “winter blues?” 🥶❄⁣⁣⁠

Why you experience low moods during winter

This can be a casual saying for most. Some people, however, actually experience Seasonal Affective Disorder. Either way, it is common to experience a dip in our moods during the winter months. Here’s why:⁣⁣⁠

In winter you experience less exposure to sunlight. This reduction disrupts your biological clock.It happens because your body experiences a change in norm and it could lead to a low feeling.☁⁣⁣ The lack of sunlight can also lead to a lack of Vitamin D, which may contribute to your low feeling. (Some find that simply taking a Vitamin D supplement during winter months massively help their mood!)⁠

Change in seasons also disrupts your melatonin levels. This brings disadvantages to your sleep pattern. Another thing that occurs is the lack of sunlight leads to decreased serotonin. This means your happy hormones in your brain are reduced. 🧠⁣⁣⁠

Whatever your reasons may be, just know that winter changes are natural. We see this in nature too- trees dying and nature changing. You are not alone.❤
