The Silence Of Winter

Living with a mental illness can be lonely and isolated. The voice in your head constantly hits you with negative thoughts. Because of this, it is important for people with depression to connect with other people who are going through the same thing. This is especially true in winter, when depression is worst for many.
Seasonal Major Depression (formerly known as Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD) is most common during the winter months. The condition is a response to the reduced sun exposure that many experience in winter.
Living with depression for years has been very difficult for me, but the support of family and close friends and strong coping methods have eased my path to recovery. Here are some of the ways that will help me get through my battle with depression during the winter months when my symptoms of depression are most acute.

Walk In Nature
On a cold sunny day, put on a thick jacket, sweater, and comfortable shoes for a nature walk.


Reading
When the weather is too bad to go outside, reading is a great activity indoors to help you feel better. Reading books stimulates your thinking, allows you to think creatively, improves concentration, and increases vocabulary and knowledge.


Be kind to yourself
Caring and self-esteem are always important when dealing with depression.

Journal

Journaling has been my all-time best way to cope. You can journal as much or as little as you want. Journaling is a way to release your thoughts on to the paper without judgment.
