Winter Solstice

Yesterday was the Winter Solstice and the official beginning of our winter season.  It marks the shortest hours of daylight and the longest hours of darkness in our Northern Hemisphere.

Along with this season can come the blues, particularly among the elderly.  When it’s cold outside it’s easy to stay in bed a bit longer.  Pajamas might seem like a good idea for the day. 

Private Home Health Care wonders about trying a few things to help ward off the winter blues. 

Could you dress in bright colors to try and trick your brain into thinking it’s a bright sunny day outside?  Do you like salmon, tuna, milk, yogurt or eggs?  Add these to your diet for Vitamin D.  Do you like to read books?  Find a good book to read with a nice cup of tea. 

How about stimulating your brain with new music, a new game or a crossword puzzle?  Cook or buy foods with squash for magnesium and potassium, sweet potatoes for vitamin B6, biotin and anti-inflammatory flavonoids or eggplant for fiber, copper and vitamin B1. 

Winter can feel like a long cold season sometimes so we hope you can do your best to keep yourself centered and happy.
