Beat The Winter Blues ~ [Issue 1205-3]  Wellness Weekly
 Dec 26, 2005 20:58 PST 


With winter now in full swing, it is very common for people to feel a
little more depressed or unhappy with less daylight and sunshine.
Getting outside on your lunch hour could help keep winter blues away.
Whether you walk to the store, have lunch on a heated balcony, or
simply walk around the outside of your office building a few times,
spending your lunchtime outdoors could help boost your mood. Research
suggests that blood levels of mood-boosting serotonin may increase
with increased exposure to sunlight. Be safe when spending time
outdoors by protecting yourself from ultraviolet radiation.
Sunscreen, sunglasses, and protective clothing are still appropriate
in cold weather, especially at high altitudes and in snowy areas that
tend to reflect a great deal of sunlight. Spending time outside in
the sun also may help combat jetlag.
