Winter Blues

I think I may be getting the winter blues or i'm just becoming depressed in general. Nothing seems to make me happy. Not even the thought of Christmas- presents, giving, wrapping, eating etc. Is getting me excited. I don't want to do anything. Anything i do that would normally make me happy- baking, reading, fun stuff at night, talking to friends, watching movies, etc isn't making me happy. I just want to sleep from now till forever. I'm tired and no amount of sleep has been helping. I just feel blah!
I've been told that eating healthy foods and walking and excercising can help but that doesn't seem to be working.
Any suggestions?????

Go outside and get sunshine,

Go outside and get sunshine, even though it's cold. Winter blues are usually caused by vitamin D deficiency. Our skin makes it in reaction to sunlight, and if you don't get it you're more prone to depression. It's all science.

Be yourself. 'Cause if you're busy being somebody else, who's gonna be you?
