Wellbeing for Winter
Wellbeing for Winter: Beat the Blues
Following the immense challenges of 2020 and the inevitable lull following the festive fun, it will be no surprise if January and February 2021 comes as a struggle for some. For some, the winter period and January in particular is accompanied by feeling mentally & physically drained with a significant impact on mood. This is known as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), often also described as ‘Winter Depression’ or ‘Winter Blues’. The nature and severity of SAD varies from person to person. For some, it is just a mild impact, while for others it can have a significant impact on day to day life. It has been estimated that up to 20% of us may be affected by this in some way.
Factor in also – the challenge of working from home when it’s dark outside at 4pm, nationwide and local lockdowns – and Winter 2020/21 could be a serious threat to our wellbeing and mental health.
In this 60 minute Wellbeing for Winter webinar developed and delivered by a leading clinical psychologist, delegates can expect to:
- Recognise the signs and symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and ‘January Blues’
- Understand the biological origins of SAD
- Explore evidence-based psychological and behavioural strategies to manage the mental and emotional challenges associated with a long, dark and cold winter.
