HOW to avoid autumnal depression?

HOW to avoid autumnal depression?

OHMYGOSSIP – Autumn is the main time of the year when people become depressed. Indeed it may be depressing when it just keeps raining outside and the sky is grey, you get home from school-work all tired… every day that way. Yet there is always a way to look at it in a positive way!

1. Start thinking positive right now! There is no point just hanging around and being moody, better use your spare time to do something that gives you joy.

2. Afford yourself one day a week when you just rest – this is necessary for the organism to remove weariness. On that day do the things that you like and allow yourself something tasty.

3. Don’t overload yourself with work, think what your actual capabilities are.

8 things to do on dark autumn nights:

Read books, escape to a completely different world for a few hours. It is not rational to buy books for just a one-time read, you can borrow a bunch for free from the library. Recommendation: Very good romantic books for autumn are for example the novels “Jane Eyre” and “Wuthering Heights”.

Go to the gym. You think that you are too tired to work out? On the contrary, after the workout you will feel the new energy and will have a positive feeling. The very expensive sports clubs are not always the best, you may visit a smaller and less expensive gym or just purchase a good workout video. Recommendation: Trying out different types of dance and aerobics styles will create a positive mood.

Arrange yourself a home SPA night. Pamper yourself that one night with all the bathing salts, skin peels and skin masks. A nature friendly and good quality selection is available for example at Elisheva & Shoshana webstore. Create a calm atmosphere by lighting candles in the bathroom and listening to soft music. After that you will feel well treated and peaceful. Recommendation: Set everything ready already beforehand, so that you can fully enjoy it and later on jump straight to the warm bed.

Pamper yourself with Nordic quality cosmetics (

Watch a good movie. Be it alone or with the girls, arrange a great film night. Watch a happy and sweet movie and you will see how your mood improves. Recommendation: The best are romantic comedies and girls’ movies. For example “17 again” and “Notebook”.

Cook something. Prepare something extraordinary to eat. Browse the internet for recipes and try out something completely new. Make the meal a festive occasion, lay the table and decorate it. Recommendation: Invite your friends to come over, they would definitely be surprised and happy.

Make yourself beautiful. When you go to a birthday or another event, make yourself beautiful. Take your time to prepare the look and enjoy it. Later during the event you’ll be glowing. Recommendation: Still, do not overdo it with the makeup while getting ready!

Clean your home. When you feel like everything is so dull, make the home shine and give away the things that you are not using. It is a lot more pleasant to return home when everything is tidy.

Find joy in the little things. This may sound like a cliche, but think how lucky you are that you live here and now. Take a walk outside and enjoy the fresh autumn night. Recommendation: Smile and be friendly with others, enjoy your life, because it is beautiful!!!
