When I look out my window and see the overcast, gray sky, I’m reminded of the seasons changing, and although fall is already here, winter is just around the corner. Last weekend was an exception because it was unusually warm and sunny. I spent last Sunday on a day trip by the beach soaking in some much needed sun and I appreciated every moment of the summer like weather before it went away. While it’s wonderful practice to be in the present moment, at times it’s good to look toward the future so we can use this moment for planning. With fewer daylight hours, fall can lead to lower energy, even sadness or depression. Fortunately there are preventative measures to stave off fall and winter blues. Here are 5 ways to Beat the Fall Blues.

  1. Walk on the beach and listen to the sound of the waves. Breathe and allow the sea air to bring you to a relaxed state. Relaxing in this way can help rejuvenate the mind and body.
  2. Cozy up indoors in a clean, welcoming space. Spring cleaning is a cliche, but fall is also a great time to overhaul your living space. This provides a feeling of accomplishment as well as prepares your space for several months of indoor-focused living.
  3. Fill your calendar. Plan one exciting event each month (a get-together with friends, a concert, etc.) It’s a simple but true emotional boost–having something to look forward to brings happiness.Get out there and socialise. Whether you’re taking a class or joining a group.
  4. Improve your diet. Good nutrition plays a vital role in your moods.
  5. Wear bright clothes on dreary days!  I don’t know about you, but when I dress myself in bright colours, I automatically feel happier. It is actually quite a good tactic to force yourself to wear something bright when you are in a bad mood. Not easy to do, I know, but it sure is effective.
  6. Exercise. Indoors or outdoors. Physical exercise, especially the kind of exercise you enjoy, helps combat sadness and depression.
  7. Meditate. Mindfulness and meditation can help create a positive mental environment for the immune system to flourish.
  8. Fill up your calendar. Plan a vacation. Get friends together. Do something interesting!
