I have a special "lovey" here today to write a little light for you. Jayda is amazing. I met her during the Hollywood Housewife Day in the Life instagram challenge. She has been so wonderful and I really wanted to introduce her to all of you.
Enjoy Miss Jayda, loveys!
Seasonal Affective Disorder better know as Winter Blues is upon us. The U.S. National Library of Medicine notes "some people experience a serious mood change when the seasons change. They may sleep too much, have little energy, and may also feel depressed. Though symptoms can be severe, they usually clear up.
One of the treatments for SAD is light therapy. Light therapy or phototherapy (classically referred to as heliotherapy) consists of exposure to daylight or to specific wavelengths of light using polychromatic polarized light, lasers, light-emitting diodes, fluorescent lamps, dichroic lamps or very bright, full-spectrum light. The light is administered for a prescribed amount of time and, in some cases, at a specific time of day. -Wikepedia
Light therapy huh? That’s the answer when I ask what can I do when so many are suffering from this syndrome and I’m blessed to be happy and full of energy…. Light therapy – Be a light.
I’m not licensed to prescribe or administer wavelengths of light but I can be a light and offer wavelengths of love. We all can.
If you know someone suffering from the winter blues offer to meet up for coffee and conversations. A warm cup of coffee (or tea), a little sunshine and love goes a long way and can brighten anyone’s day.
Call them just to ask, “How are you”. Send them a hand written note in the mail.
If you are hiding behind the cruel symptoms of SAD don’t be afraid to reach out to a friend or family member. Get out of the house; come out for a little sunshine, grab a cup of something warm and set out to find someone you can bring a little light to. I’ve always found helping someone with bigger problems than mine has always been helpful for my energy level, happiness and peace.
Let light and love lead the way. Praying for Winter Bliss for all. Love you all to peace(s).
