questionshow do you beat "winter depression"?


It beats me. Then I console myself with a fuzzy blanket and a nap.


A couple of full-spectrum lightbulbs in the overhead light fixtures.

They're cheap -- ~$1-2 per bulb for incandescents, and there are full spectrum CFLs now also. The effect may be psychosomatic, but it works for me.


Carbs. Lots of carbs. Preferably in the form of HaagenDazs bananas foster ice cream, and Reese's cups miniatures. For me, the miniatures have the optimal peanut butter:chocolate (ratio).
Also lots of Chai tea.
