What do I do if I have the winter blues?

As the temperatures gets colder and the days get shorter, it’s common for people to lose energy. You may be struggling to get your tasks done and experience changes in your eating and sleeping habits.

If you’re not used to living in a cold climate, the winter can be especially hard to get through.

Why is this happening to me?

Your body has an internal clock, called your circadian rhythm, which depends on light to tell it when to sleep. During the winter, your circadian rhythm may get offbeat because there’s less sunlight, making you feel drowsy during the day.
