Chase away the winter blues

Chase away the winter blues

In the fall when the days are shorter and the temperatures cooler, do you find yourself wanting to sleep more? Do you feel blue? You may have seasonal affective disorder. Here are three self-help measures to try: 1. Open your shades to let in the sunlight. 2. Head outdoors on sunny days. 3. Include physical activity in your daily routine. If these steps don't help or your symptoms are severe, see your doctor.
