5 Ways to Take Charge of SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder)

girl-in-the-sun

So, the clocks went back last weekend which means darker shorter days ahead “Boooooo!”  I am definitely a sunshine girl at heart which is one of the reasons why I travel so much I think.  I always find that my mood changes this time of year and I know for sure its down to the early sunsets and becoming pitch black by 4pm (Hi December around the corner!)

It can be a bit depressing, especially when working from home like myself.  As soon as it begins to get dark, my body instructs me to down tools, days over when in actual fact it’s only 3:30pm!

I’ve resigned myself to the fact that I definitely have a mild case of SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder).  SAD is a form of seasonal depression that is brought on by the change in the weather and season.  Most people experience SAD in winter time.

It happens to many of us this time of year, particularly in winter.  After trialling some of my own personal methods, I’ve set out 5 effective ways to combat SAD:

Aveley’s Sir Henry’s is Sir Tasty

When I moved to Essex from London not so long ago, it took some time getting to know where to go for good food, drinks with a decent beer garden at the back! (#priorities).

Increase Your Wardrobe Space Without Getting Rid of Any Clothes

This morning when I woke up shivering, I couldn’t live in denial any longer, winter’s  closer than I thought!

Today’s task is to change my wardrobes over from summer wear to winter wear.  Summer clothes will be stored in trunks (and under the bed!) and my winter warmers will get to see the light of day again as I free them from the vac bags stored in my trunks and spare bedroom!

Because I like to like to hang almost everything up in my wardrobe, it can sometimes get pretty crammed and packed in there.  I’m sure it’s happened to you (if not already happening), your clothes are jammed together like sardines, some items falling off the hangers, other items you cant even see as they’re squished in so tight.  There’s never enough space.

Well recently I stumbled across a remedy for this little inconvenience; Velvet Space Saving Hangers.

These little gems have taken my wardrobe…..
