Lifestyle Tips to Keep Your Energy Up This Winter
Integrate warm colors into your house, work or car — wherever you spend a good chunk of time. In New England and other four-season climates, reds, yellows, and oranges are abundant in the autumn. Carrying this warmth into the winter can extend the feeling of light and energy through the darker months.
Get moving by exercising your mind and body this season! Play a game, do a puzzle, go for a brisk walk, or do some daily stretches.
Prioritize your sleep by going to bed early enough to get eight hours or more of rest. We may not hibernate like bears and bats, but we do still need good sleep and support this time of year.
