Let some light in.
In search of some light in what seems an endless winter, I stumbled across a little handbook that focuses mainly on happiness and productivity. It gives some great insight and allows you to pick and choose from a variety of methods to your own liking. It has inspired me enough to share it with you, lovelies. You can find the link here.
Fearing solitude.
As soon as we are alone, inner chaos opens up in us. This chaos can be so disturbing and so confusing that we can hardly wait to get busy again. Entering a private room and shutting the door, therefore, does not mean that we immediately shut out all our inner doubts, anxieties, fears, bad memories, unresolved conflicts, angry feelings and impulsive desires. On the contrary, when we have removed our outer distraction, we often find that our inner distraction manifest themselves to us in full force. We often use the outer distractions to shield ourselves from the interior noises. This makes the discipline of solitude all the more important.
Mental health. Survive winter depression!
"Winter is coming; we must make haste!" Unfortunately our winter is already here before the next season of Game of Thrones, so I suppose the mythical land of Westeros won't be much help in surviving the cold this year. Note that I am not hating on christmas or snow or presents that you end up returning, cookies your grandmother bakes, or any other custom that winter brings. I am hating on the lack of light. Light stabilizes serotonin in your nervous system. Serotonin is food for the mind and something so essential that without it, some pretty dark thoughts may churn in that pretty little head of yours.

So what do you do when the darknight rises? (hah.) Well, for starters eat lots of D-vitimin. Swallow it, drink it, snort it. These little buggers provide some artificial light that the sun naturally emits. Sleep well and eat well. Keep in mind that "well" does not mean a shit ton. Healthy amounts lie between 7-8 hours of sleep and 5 small portions of food daily. Drink lots of tea. Even if you hate tea. Tea is your friend. (If not, add sugar.) Light candles, lots of them. Before you fall asleep, think of 5 things that you succeeded with that day. Allow praise and don't overthink. Plan to have some alone-time at least once a week for yourself. Exercise to get your endorphins going or just fuck a lot. Lastly, remember to take things one small step at a time. You will get there, don't worry.

Disclaimer: I am in no way giving professional advice and speaking strictly from experience. I am diagnosed with MDD (major depressive disorder) and not SADs (seasonal affective disorder). However, these tips have really helped me. Good luck!
Psychology: Square Eater.
I recently stumbled across a quite original concept of brain exploration on a site called squareeater.com. This site is a compilation of several video-resources in which stimulates the brain to lead users to the furthest edges of the conscious mind. I was honestly thinking at first, "This is too good to be fucking true". That a site would provide free meditative devices that warp and unlock your subconsciousness and actually work? As you could then imagine it did work. (Cause I don't see for what other purpose I would post an article about it.. if it so happened to suck balls.) Check it, lovelies.
