4 Effective Ways to Deal with Seasonal Depression

The famous Welsh painter Kyffin Williams once said: “I love the autumn for its sense of melancholy seems to strike my need for sadness. There is poetry in the dying of the year and mystery as well.” However, not all of us are capable of such a philosophic way of thinking, right? If you’re one of those who feel how autumn is quietly settling down and still can’t handle it, don’t worry. Autumn sadness is called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and however depressive this might sound taking the right steps can make you forget about it in no time. Here’s 4 easy and effective ways to deal with autumn sadness:
  1. Aromatherapy
In case you don’t know, aromatherapy is an alternative therapeutic method that uses essential oils to make you calmer and healthier. Except for this classical approach we can assure you that you can also take advantage of the culinary aromas as well. What do we mean? Try using more lemons, grapefruits, oranges (citrus fruits as a whole) and more spices like cinnamon and vanilla. All these are known as amazing aromatherapy sources!
  1. Mood-boosting fruits & veggies
