Oh me too! I have to set little things every couple weeks to look forward to in order to get me through the winter. The winter times always make me sad. I blame lack of sunlight and I’m just not a cold weather girl..especially when it snows. I feel claustrophobic.

Hang in there. Spring and sunshine and seratonin will be back soon! lol

Make sure you’re getting plenty of Vitamin D! And aerobic exercise. They really help me. Jan and Feb used to be months I would DREAD due to my guaranteed negative mood. It was really awful. Now, it’s almost like any other time of year… with a slight undertone of y-e-a-r-n-i-n-g for spring. 🙂

No, but that could be b/c I am getting married next weekend.  Once things settle down I bet I get post wedding/February blues, though.

I hear ya!  I hate this time of year and the lack of sunlight.  I lack motivaton, want to stay in bed, and just feel “down”.  I was exercising at least four times a week, but now it’s more like three.  I feel as though I have to “convince” myself to work out now.  ~  I’ve spoken with my doctor about SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) before and he shared with me that light therapy is really helpful.  I guess maybe I should consider getting one of the many lights on the market, eh!? 

Remember, the sun will come out…soon!  Laughing
