Do you have it too, the autumn blues? We explain to you what is behind the mood low and what you can do against it.
The sky is cloudy. The weather is rainy. And the trees are bare. Colorful now are only the ground, covered with yellow and red leaves, and the transitional jackets, such as those in a bright green. It’s autumn, and really: outside it’s mostly cold, wet and windy – and dark.
Autumn hits your mood. Why?
The autumn blues are caused by a lack of light: This lack affects your hormone balance and thus your mood. Your body releases more of the sleep hormone melatonin. For this, less serotonin is produced, which provides feelings of happiness. In addition, less vitamin D is produced. The consequences are that you feel more tired and listless.
What helps against the low mood?
So the autumn blues is a light-related hormonal change. Fortunately, there are some effective home remedies that you can use to get rid of the mood low: Against autumn depression helps a daily dose of sunshine, sufficient exercise, and a healthy diet. And that’s exactly why Grewp offers you and your team events.
