Combating the Winter Blues
Here in New England, it was 70 degrees this weekend. If I could, I’d be throwin’ my hands in the air in celebration of that brief Indian summer we had.
Of course, now we’re back to 40-degree highs and snow in the long term forecast.
But in that brief taste of summer, I felt the winter blues lift from my shoulders. I felt more energized, less melancholy, and could actually get outside without the worry of my muscles freezing and being unable to drive my wheelchair— the struggle.
This time of year is always challenging for my mental well-being. Living in a place where the winters are brutal and warm weather often feels fleeting during its season, I’m always looking for advice on how to stay afloat during these next few months.
