Here are some tips and tricks to spring out of the winter blues so you can get back to feeling 100% again.
●Spend some time outside doing what you love
●Little plant friends
I know what you’re thinking; caring for plants? Yes really! Spring is the perfect time to start that garden you’ve been dreaming of for the past year. Now is the ideal time to do so! Healthline states, “Studies have shown that gardening can help reduce feelings of depression.” So why not plant a couple of fruit or vegetable plants in your backyard? Or even a cute succulent that doesn’t take much work to keep up.
It can be easy to dwell on how you feel, but it’s not always good. Getting out of a negative mindset is key for recovering from seasonal depression. Why not call a friend and spend some time together at the park or have a picnic? Keeping an open schedule will keep your mind busy, making it easy not to dwell on negative thoughts and feelings. Look on your community’s website to see if they’re hosting any Spring events. The majority of the time, communities will come together to make the springtime fun!
