In case any of you were wondering, we are full-on wintering here in Maine! February has blown in with crazy snow storms so far and we aren’t even halfway through the month. We are forecasted to get one-two feet of snow from Sunday into Monday (yes I live in that red zone in the image above!) We have a snow day today and blizzard conditions are expected to be in effect for most of Monday. That is on top of the 6″ of snow from last Tuesday, another 12″ from Thursday and several inches on Saturday. And I heard another storm is expected Wednesday which could also be a big one. Annnnnd, my washer and dryer are currently broken – good times!
Any other winter and I think this would have just about broken me. But somehow, I’m doing so well with my spirits this year. The one thing that really changed is adding light therapy. And because people told me for years to do it and I never did, I just want to write here that if you struggle at all seasonally with depression, low energy, lack of motivation (whatever those gray days do to you) I really cannot recommend enough trying a light therapy box.
I have been using this exact one – NatureBright SunTouch Plus Light and Ion Therapy Lamp (package may vary) and it just really feels like it’s a total game changer for me. It’s a low cost investment. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
*I am not sure I’ll ever love winter like this little guy…
