“Winter Blues,” is not just for cancer sufferers, the dark winter days and lack of daylight is enough to depress anyone.
Our bodies crave light. If you feeling low try getting outside as often as you can, especially on bright days. Find a window to sit near can also help. If you’re not getting enough natural light from the sun, brighten your environment by turning the lights on to make up for what isn’t coming in naturally.
Maybe a friend or family could take you for an outing in a car on a nice Winter’s Day. This was one of our ways to help Shelli when she had trouble sleeping. She would often fall asleep with the Winter sun’s condensed warmth in the car combined with feeling secure in company. Also was a nice outing for us too. Carers need sunshine too. Don’t be annoyed if the patient does go to sleep, your silent company, the daylight, warmth and security will be working wonders!
