Wellness Wednesday Message is brought to you by your Middle School Psychologist:
Winter got you down? During Rochester's long, dark, cold winters, a lot of people experience the "winter blues". Sometimes, these feelings of being "down" are called Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD. Symptoms of SAD include a down mood, lack of energy, and increased sleeping and eating.
Some tips to help you through the "winter blues"
- Take a walk outside, especially when the sun is out.
- Exercise regularly.
- Maintain a regular sleep schedule - even on the weekend.
- Write down your negative feelings so that you get them out of your head.
- Plan fun activities during the cold months so that you have things to look forward to.
Genre Labels help identify different types of books by interest. Look for these labels on the spines of our books to help you find something you would like to read.
