29. S.A.D. And Tips On How To Survive Fall & Winter


If you’re like me, and aren’t a fan of the colder and darker months, it can feel really anxious this time of the year since we know that we have this season ahead of us. Luckily enough,  the weather has been great these past few weeks in Stockholm, but I actually started to feel anxious about fall and winter already in March this year, and I have realized this is a big problem for me. 

I came across something called S.A.D., which I talk more about in this episode, and it made me realize how these really anxious and uncomfortable feelings I am feeling around this season is a type of depression. I want to share this if there is anyone else who might feel the same, and have any tips on how to deal with it. I also share a few things I have on my list that I will try to remember and turn to when it gets darker and colder. 

I also mention my membership website, The Retreat, and how you find everything from Pilates, yoga classes, and meditations, to healthy recipes, journaling prompts, manifestation practices, and much more. I personally find it harder during fall and winter to stick to my wellness routines, but I think this platform has helped me since you have everything you need in one place.

If you want to try it out, you can use the code PODCAST to get 10% off any membership. 

You find The Retreat here.

Also, another amazing subscription service I talk about is Sakara, and I am so in love with their nutritions, organic, science-backed, ready-to-eat meals. I would recommend doing the quiz on their website to find out which program suits you the best; e.g. they have one promoting gut health, one targeting metabolism, one for energy, and so on. And if you haven’t tried Sakara yet, you get 20% off your first order if you use the code HEALTHBYMSAKARA and shop through the link here.

So don’t miss out if you want to try Sakara’s meal programs or other products, and by shopping you will support HEALTH BY M and this podcast as I earn commission.

Please let me know what you’re experience with S.A.D. is and if you have any tips? Would love to hear.
