Tips for dealing with S.A.D
*Seasonal Affective Disorder* otherwise known as the Blaise feeling you get when the weather starts playing charades with your life.
A few tips to help you overcome the funk ⬇️

Essential oils from the citrus family like Bergamot, Lime, Mandarin, and Orange can help to lift the mood in your space. Where as woody and spicy oils like Patchouli, Ginger & Cedarwood can help you with grounding.
➡️ 🧘🏿♂️Stretch to restore balance.
Serotonin is a chemical that delivers messages between nerve cells throughout the body. Stretching helps to boost serotonin levels, which makes us feel happier and more connected to ourselves.
➡️ ☀️ Follow the light.
Sunlight is what our body craves, and during the colder months we have much less of it. Try walking or spending some time outdoors during light hours to help recharge your batteries. If you're busy at work or can't get out for whatever reason then try sitting by the window to soak in some rays.
