See if you can relate to Maria’s recent social media posts: “I can’t take much more! Winter seems to be lingering longer than usual – though maybe what’s driving my blues is a mix of Covid, snow, and ice. I’m so bummed!”
She’s not alone. According to Bustle writer Marison Bernstein, between October and April, as [daylight] diminishes, life can be depressing because we produce more melatonin which leads to feeling perpetually sleepy.
Further, feelings of sadness and loneliness are common, and this can even lower self-esteem. “Nearly 30% of people would prefer to be in the cold and nearly 60% of people would agree that they like the heat better,” Bernstein writes.
Scientists say the sun does more than cheer us up; it helps us remember more things! Can you recall a warm winter vacation in the past that is unforgettable? Perhaps it’s time you repeated that experience now in Belize, where frozen northerners are escaping for more than just the sun!
Spend February or March on a tropical island
