Everyone loves chocolate and chips, but try to save those for another day. Why? Foods that are high in fats, carbohydrates, and sugars cause a dip in your blood levels. These dips can have a dreadful effect on how you feel mentally and physically.
Instead, make sure to eat balanced meals. Maybe treat yourself to some extra fruits and veggies. It’ll provide an extra boost to easily pull yourself through this gloomy day!
Catching natural daylight isn’t as easy during wintertime. It’s usually still dark out on your way to work, school, or the gym, and once you’re back home, the sun has already said its goodbye’s. Chances are, this has a negative effect on your mood. Daylight is super important for the production of vitamin D and serotonin in your brain.
Try to prioritize squeezing in some outside time during the day. Go on a walk during lunch and soak up some of that much-needed Vitamin D. Plus, it’s an easy way for some extra movement, so let’s go!
Here’s to skipping the blues this year. Which of these tips will help you beat Blue Monday? It’s up to you.
