Do you feel that you are developing a case of the winter blues? Is your mood trending down as the weather gets colder and the days become shorter? The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers this advice to help battle the winter blues:

  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids, especially water.
  • Hone in on a hobby, such as making your own crafts or reading more.
  • Take up a new winter sport, such as skiing or ice skating.
  • Cut back on dietary portion sizes, and add more fruits and vegetables to your menu.
  • Adjust your sleep schedule — go to sleep earlier and wake earlier in the morning.
