Seasonal Sadness?

I’ve never been diagnosed with depression or seasonal depression, or anything really.

But I do feel like I tend to get sad at certain points of the year, reoccurringly.

And those points are winter months.

The winter for me is the worst part of the year. It’s cold, wet, dark and just generally miserable. I guess a big part of the problem is that I don’t really like rain. It just makes everything seem so dim, and so it causes every negative thought I have during rain/winter to seem more vivid and lengthy.

I much prefer the summer months, when it’s warm, and I can lie outside on the grass just feeling the sun on my face while I lie there thinking about the happy times of my life. A lot of those thoughts are about food haha! But seriously, food is the love of my life, no joke.

So what I’m hoping for this year is that I don’t get that winter sadness. Because I really want to enjoy life. I really do.

Here’s to hoping your life, and mine, are happy and calming.

  1. The sound of rain can be soothing if you are indoors, it’s the darkness that’s not so pleasant, especially that really dark rain that sometimes brings clouds that make everything so dark I need to put lights on in the middle of the day! Thankfully rain doesn’t last and when it’s over it’s often followed by a lovely break of sunlight 🙂
    I love summer’s too, not the heatwaves but they are so lovely, warm and the days last so long 🙂

  2. Winter lasts a really long time in Canada and we don’t get a lot of sun during the winter months. Now that the days are getting shorter, it doesn’t help with this issue. I heard that there’s a light you can get to help with seasonal affective disorder (SAD) but I haven’t looked into it. It might be worth looking into! 🙏🏻🌹🌹

  3. The lack of sunlight during the winter months are definitely not fun. Plus the cold weather forces you to stay indoors which doesn’t help either. This year I hope to combat the seasonal sadness by joining the gym. I’ll be running like a hamster on the treadmill. Maybe the exercise will blow off the anxiety that builds in me from the dreadful season.
