As soon as you arrive in winter time, try to wake up earlier in the morning so that you can wake up from daylight when you wake up.
> Do not watch too late at night. Enjoy your evenings that start early, read, watch movies that you have not had time to see at the movies.
> Try to adopt a positive attitude: take care of yourself, it is not because you are (already) stuck in coats and boots that you do not have to feel attractive. Make an appointment for facials, massages. Try to keep cultural activities and go out as soon as you can to change your mind.

Eat fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin C. If you know that you are subject to this type of winter blues, take advice from your doctor or pharmacist for a homeopathic cure, for example, in anticipation of the arrival of the seasons cold.
> Anything that can make you feel good must be done to get the winter blues through as smoothly as possible.
