It can be easy to slip into a low mood in the wintertime. S.A.D. (Seasonal Affected Disorder) is a real mental health issue, where the change in the seasons and the shorter days can cause us to feel depressed. I’ve suffered from this for years.

Here are 20 good things about the winter:

  1. Hot showers
  2. Reading nooks
  3. Blankets and film marathons
  4. Autumn leaves
  5. Vibes fit for writing emotive poetry
  6. Clear night’s sky
  7. Cosy dressing gowns
  8. Hot chocolates
  9. Sitting by a fire and sharing stories
  10. Christmas dinner
  11. Slowing down
  12. Christmas Day!
