Winter got you down?

Eat Complex Carbohydrates- Maintain your levels of Serotonin by addingsome complex carbs to your diet! Peas, beans or whole grains are great options to naturally balance your mood.
Light Therapy- Each color of Light has a different vibration, which in turn, produces a different energy in our bodies. The healing effects of these energies are proven to correct hormone imbalances, restore energy & heal the body. Experience the calming effect of Blue Light Therapy by drinking SOL water!
Move in New Ways- Go for a 20 minute walk & explore a new neighborhood, try a new sport such as racquetball or yoga, or dance around the living room to your 5 favorite music videos! Exercise is as good as or better at treating depression than antidepressants, and it’s sure to make you smile!
