The world around us has a significant impact on how we feel. And nothing influences mood more than a lack of sunlight during the winter months. The cold, dark winter can quickly exacerbate feelings of gloom and sadness or trigger underlying mental health conditions.

How a lack of sunlight affects our mood

At this time of year, a boost to mood, either from lifestyle changes or supplements, is crucial to staying on track, even if you do veer off course from time to time. Here's why:

Shorter days and less daylight

In the winter months, when days are shorter and the nights longer, the limited daylight hours are usually spent in the office or at home. Combined with poor weather conditions and colder temperatures, the impact on well-being can quickly snowball, eroding your motivation, desire, and mood.

Why sunlight matters

Sunlight does more than just brighten the sky; it brightens our mood too. It’s also fundamental to the body's vitamin D production, influencing physical well-being. In short, we need the sunshine to think and feel at our best. When such an essential resource is in limited supply, minor tweaks to lifestyle can make all the difference.

Winter months and seasonal affective disorder (SAD)

Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a form of depression that varies according to seasonal patterns. Sometimes called "winter depression", symptoms often become more intense during winter, although SAD can occur at any time of year.

Many people describe SAD as being like a black cloud that follows them wherever they go. However, it isn't unusual for most people to feel this way, at least to some degree, during the winter months.

Symptoms of SAD in winter can include:

Tips to stay on track

Head outside

If possible, adjust your schedule to make the most of the limited daylight. Even ten minutes at lunchtime makes a difference.

Stay active

Keep your mind and body moving with exercise, even if you have to head indoors to avoid the wind and rain.

Eat colourful foods

Colourful whole foods are naturally rich in vitamins, terpenes, and flavonoids. If in doubt, add some colour to your plate for a nutritional boost.

Add supplements

Add missing vitamins, minerals, and beneficial botanicals using supplements, especially during winter.
