Malibu, CA (PRWEB) December 02, 2013
As countries in the northern hemisphere prepare for the coming winter months, Passages Malibu prepared a list of tips meant to prevent seasonal affection disorder. Common symptoms of seasonal affective disorder include a minor lack of energy to more serious feelings of depression.
Passages Malibu winter tips include:
Getting some sun – Morning sunlight is known to be a national mood booster which also helps to regulate the body’s internal clock.
Eating right – Recently published research shows that refined grains and soft drinks can contribute to depression, especially in women. Foods rich in Vitamin D and Omega-3 fatty acids help to improve mental health.
Regular exercise – When the weather turns cooler it’s tempting to curl up under the blankets; however it’s especially important to remain physically active during winter months, both to maintain your health and to enhance your immune system.
Limiting your caffeine intake – While a cup of coffee seems like an easy fix when you’re down, too much caffeine can aggravate anxiety and/or contribute to insomnia.
"Depression is one of the underlying conditions that causes addiction," said Pax Prentiss, CEO of Passages Addiction Treatment Centers. "At Passages, we have found that dependency on drugs can be eliminated once you heal the underlying causes. Our experience shows that it’s possible to overcome addiction and move on with your life."
