Brrr! It's still cold outside! You might be feeling like winter has gone on for ages, and that the end can't come soon enough. We hear you! Winter can be a dreary time, and it's no fun feeling blue when the skies are gray. But don't worry, we've got your back! If you're in need of some warm, fuzzy feelings to chase away your seasonal affective disorder, we've got just the tips for you. So get ready to bring some sunshine back into your life!

Let The Natural Light In

One of the main causes of seasonal depression is a lack of sunlight. But don't worry, there's a simple solution that can brighten up your day: the sun! Just opening your curtains or blinds every morning can help flood your home with natural light and boost your mood. And if you're looking for the perfect curtains that will still provide some privacy, our Washed Linen Sheer Curtain is an excellent choice! It's light and breezy, allowing sunlight to pour in and lift your spirits. 

Try Light Therapy

Don't let the gloomy winter weather get you down! Keeping your home bright and cheery is key to lifting everyone's spirits. One way to do this is by using full-spectrum light bulbs - they're like little suns that can brighten up your day and boost your mood! If you are looking to add more light to your home, try our Century Table Lamp. Not only will it enhance the light in your room, it is incredibly stylish.

If you need an additional boost in the morning, the Restore Smart Sleep Assistant is the perfect alarm clock with a sunrise alarm for a gentle sunny wake up call every morning.

Bring the Outside In

Winter can be a chilly time, which makes it tough to enjoy the great outdoors. But that doesn't mean you can't bring a little nature inside! House plants are a wonderful addition to any home, as they not only add a pop of greenery, but they can also improve air quality and help boost your mood. Additionally, research has shown that being around plants can reduce stress and anxiety.

Connect With Loved Ones

The winter can not only be cold, but also lonely. It's essential to make time for the people who warm your heart. And what better way to do that than by hosting a cozy dinner party? It's the perfect opportunity to gather your loved ones around and enjoy each other’s company. To make the night extra special why not add some stylish decor. Our Cloud Cotton Table Runner with matching Cloud Cotton Napkins will certainly wow your guests.

Make Your Home Cozy

If you're spending more time snuggled up at home during the winter, you deserve to be in the coziest space possible. And what's cozier than a soft and inviting home? Adding soft blankets like our Alpaca Boucle Throw and our Vintage Linen Pillow Cover will add a touch of warmth and comfort to your space, making it the perfect spot to curl up with a good book or watch your favorite show. 

Normalize Sleep Patterns

Getting a good night's sleep is key in order to feel your best every day. Even though it can be dark, it’s important to avoid sleeping during the day to be able to fall asleep every night. The first step to a good night's sleep is always a good mattress. Our Eco Mattress is carefully designed to make sure you can get are comfortable all night long.

Remember that if you are experiencing symptoms of seasonal affective disorder (SAD), it's important to seek professional help from a healthcare provider. These at-home remedies can be used in addition to any treatments recommended by your doctor.
