Do you struggle with seasonal depression, the winter blues or full-fledged Seasonal Affective Disorder?

I recently asked members of our private Facebook group their biggest current struggle and I was overwhelmed with responses about the winter blues and seasonal depression.

I am not a doctor and I don’t want to minimize the importance of seeing a doctor and exploring medication if you’re struggling with depression.

In addition to medical support, there are so many ways to support your mental health as we enter these darker months. And much of this support starts now - from a proactive place.

In this episode, I talk you through a variety of simple lifestyle upgrades (yes, upgrades!) that can have a profound impact on your mental health and quality of life during these winter months.

You will learn how to:

  • ID depression stressors and triggers
  • Tune into your body and needs
  • Shift your perspective on self-care
  • Incorporate more joy
  • Stay more connected during these months that can often feel very isolating

Please share this episode with others who may be struggling as we enter these winter months. Your support could deeply impact another mama’s life.
