Welcome back to the new semester! It has felt like a very long winter hasn’t it? Record breaking snowfall, ice and sleet. Spring just can’t come soon enough. February is also the time when many people feel the “Winter Blues.” It’s an uncomfortable, yet common experience many people have. Luckily there is a lot you can do to prevent the blues….
Exercise – it’s a great stress reliever!
Eat a healthy diet – food changes your mood.
Get some sun – spend some time outdoors during the day. Talk a walk in Central Park or around campus.
Embrace the season – instead of avoiding the cold, take up a winter sport like skating, snowboarding, hockey, or even sledding!
Get Social Support – don’t underestimate the power of friends, family, mentors, and classmates.
