6. Digital Detox.

In the winter, when it’s colder and the days are shorter and we’re inside more, it’s far easier and more tempting to spend more time on social media. Well it may be a surprise to you but social media is not good for your mental health. It fills you up with other peoples ‘perfect’ lives and leaves you envious and feeling not good enough. Take one or two days a week and switch off all digital devices.

7. Add humour to your day.

Collect funny memes, movies, books to add laughter to your day. Find a few simple items, such as photos, greeting cards or comic strips, that make you chuckle. Then hang them up at home or in your office, or collect them in a file or notebook. Keep funny movies, TV shows, books, magazines or comedy videos on hand for when you need an added humor boost.

Look online at joke websites or silly videos. Listen to humorous podcasts. The Mayo clinic says laughter has both short term and long term health benefits such as improving your immune system, relieving pain, and soothing tension. In the winter when colds and the flu are more frequent, strengthening our immune systems is a needed thing.

9. Dress in brighter colors.

Colours have the power to affect our emotions and mood. Warm tones such as reds and oranges are vibrant and energizing while cool colours such as blues and light greens calm us. And grey–mother nature’s favourite colour in winter—is depressing.

10. Invest in plant or flower therapy.

Plants and flowers are known to be effective in reducing stress, improving our ability to focus, and making us feel happy. During winter you’re inside for longer periods and plants help to optimize and clean the air! Nurturing a plant and being surrounded by greenery is good for the soul. Buy some flowers from the grocery store or visit a greenhouse.

Eating 5 or more servings of fruits and veggies daily has been linked to a higher level of mental well-being. Eating a wide variety of fruits and vegetables will ensure you get all the essential vitamins and minerals you need.
