I loved this article! While its currently entering summer here in Australia, I’ve favourited your tips to use next winter. I grew up in the tropics and since moving as far south as you can go in Australia, I’ve well and truly developed the ‘winter blues’ and have been searching for ways to ease it. This should really help :)

Hi Marthe!
I found your blog via a post someone made on Facebook. I am so happy I did. I feel like you are speaking to me. I also have a daylight lamp, I call it my “happy light”. I was just wondering, how much time do you spend in front of it on average then? Winter is such a hard time I would like to lay in front of it all the time but obviously can’t!

Cut up tiny pieces of a Ginger root & boil them in some water-makes a strong tea full of sunshine…

Sprinkle Cayenne Pepper into your soup or coffee-clears out your lungs…

If feeling really depressed or chronic cold, go to a tanning salon & get the strong machine for 9 minutes…(only do this once or you get wrinkles…)

Bundle up really really well & go for a super long walk…Reward yourself after with your favorite food, a hot bath & the rest of the night on the couch with the TV set…

I feed Trumpeter Swans in winter…They eat the wild bird suet from my hands & the close contact makes me feel joy…

We live in Canada & it’s cold here 6 months of the year…My husband swings deeply into sadness every season, so my job, as the optimist, is to cheer things up…

My husband also suffers with the winter blues very badly, we often take a sun holiday towards the end of winter just so he can get a good dose of vitamin d and reconnect with nature and warmth! I love the ideas here generally as I think they can all apply to anyone with a dark cloud over their head, whatever the season, thank you so much for sharing some inspiration x x
