Low mood and loss of interest in things during the autumn - winter period of the year, can be common place for many of us. Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) can leave us feeling drained of energy and even make us irritable. Talking to a trained therapist can help overcome this often misdiagnosed disorder and help make us feel positive and in control again. Winter depression which (SAD) is sometimes known as, can often be overcome by simply getting enough daylight. However its important to get your timings right with this. I recommend getting out into the daylight as early as you can, incorporating into your morning routine. Walk the dog round the block before breakfast, ponder around your back garden, even just standing outside for ten to twenty minutes daydreaming, whatever it takes. The daylight will help regulate your circadian rhythm and help balance your sleep / wake hormones - try it in the morning! On dark days you can boost this habit with a Vit D + K2 supplement.
