Most folks who read my livejournal are aware I have SAD, or Seasonal Affective Disorder. That's the official term for "Winter Blues", where you get less energy and get more depressed as the days get shorter and the sunlight gets weaker.

Finding ways to cope is important!

First of all, I make sure to get lighting, especially in the morning. I have a set of florescent lights by the computer. When I do my morning reading, I turn them on so I can get some extra light.

Music helps to keep me going when I'm feeling down. I find it easier to do things around the house if there's music playing.

I also tend to sleep longer. I plan for this, scheduling nine hours for sleep whenever I can. Warm blankets and purring kitty cats are a must!

Lastly, I have a bad habit of chowing down on baked goods this time of year. Not only is it the feasting/dessert season, but carbs are my own comfort, along with cream.
