Winter days can be long and dreary and often be followed by yet another day of dreariness and even another one after that. Winter feels like a low energy time of year and maybe that is why some animals hibernate, but we don’t have that choice. We must go about our business, feed ourselves, take care of our responsibilities and live our lives irrespective of the weather conditions.
Dreary winter days are characterized by lack of sunshine and some form of cloud cover, be it fog, an overall uniform thickness of clouds or dark imposing clouds. This may also be accompanied by drizzle or all out rain. All of this serves to put a very sad, depressed feeling to the world outside. It is only natural for this feeling to carry through to the world inside. Without the sun to brighten the world outdoors and to spill in through the windows of your home, your home is likely to take on that same dreary feeling.
You can save yourself the depressing feelings caused by winter days by putting multi spectrum or full spectrum lighting in your house. This lighting will brighten up your home and give you the feeling of a sunny day. After basking in the light put out by these wonderful devices, you will feel more rejuvenated and brighter, more ready to face your day and all the responsibilities it holds for you.
