No worries – I have something amazing to help you beat the blues!
Are you sensitive to the season? Or just feeling blue?
If you said yes it does not necessarily mean that you have “Seasonal Affective Disorder,” – I don’t even like the word “disorder” so let’s break it down another way.
As a sensitive you experience everything in life through – feeling. It’s your superpower, you are a super-feeler.
There is truth that some sensitives feel more affected by their emotional reaction to dark days. Dark feels heavy – light feels light.
Things that happen in life can feel dark and heavy also. We’ve all been there and it’s not fun.
Heavy thoughts tend to be more activated at night. It’s like your thoughts are pulled down as the sun sets. You focus on everything that’s not going well, the problems magnify and your mind fills with negative scenarios. By the time your head hits the pillow, you’re exhausted but too anxious to sleep. Morning comes and you’re still exhausted, your mind kicks in with the anxious worries and so another day begins.
Your mind gets wrapped up in trying to make sense of past experiences or negative possibilities, imagining them having a different outcome. If you’ve ever felt stuck on negative events (for example, mentally reliving a fight with family member), rumination can fuel those feelings of depression and anxiety. Not too surprisingly, you’re more prone to rumination when you are alone and free from distractions, which tends to be at night for most of everyone. End-of-the-day fatigue can also make you more prone to feeling down. Sometimes sleeping on it is the best advice.
Your heightened sensitive reaction to dark days is like anything else, you notice what’s going on outside of you more than others. It affects you.
During colder, winter months the shorter, colder days can drag on and you feel your energy dropping with the temperatures. But not to worry – I’m here to share 100 ways to beat the blues – and they work any time of the year!
