Can you stand on your head or do a handstand?! If so do this daily for at least 3 minutes, or more if possible. This, for me has been the most effective method for banishing the blues.
Try using a wall for support on your back.
If these poses are not accessible to you then try a modified inversion such as Downward Dog or Forward Fold.
The Breath of Joy will also give you an energy boost.
Eat more fruits and veggies.
The sun may not feel warm in winter’s colder climates but it will provide you with the needed vitamin D. Get outside! You may also want to addVitamin D supplements.
Eat more fatty fish like Salmon, Lake Trout, Mackerel. If you are not a fish eater simply take a fish oil supplement.
Listen to music that makes you happy! Here’s one of my favorites. Maybe even dance to the beat!
Get some exercise every day. You don’t need to make it into a big thing – simply take a walk or do a few jumping jacks. Anything! Just Move! If you do belong to a gym then use it.
Have a few Reiki sessions to get your energy balanced and your body in the best state to start healing itself.
Try wearing some joy making crystals like Carnelian, Lithium Quartz, Bloodstone, Rose Quartz.
If these methods do not make a difference in your mood please do not hesitate to call a professional! You are not alone in sadness/depression and it is nothing to be ashamed about. You cannot achieve your purpose on earth when you live in sadness so help the world out and get yourself in peak emotional condition.
