Gray weather getting you down? A lack of sunlight affects our circadian rhythm which affects our sleep cycles and can also leave us low on Vitamin D which can lead to Seasonal Affective Disorder. If the sun is out, make it a priority to take a walk or stand outside to absorb the benefits (wear sunscreen when needed). Consider taking a walk while drinking your afternoon coffee. If you can't make it outside, you can buy a "happy light" to keep on your desk that emulates natural daylight, providing what you would normally get from the sun, including important signals to the body to help you relax, focus, and feel revitalized.
