Winter seems to be in full force lately, causing us southerners to have the winter blues.

As the days get shorter and the nights get colder, even the best of us can get a little down. The winter blues are characterized by the mild depression, lack of motivation and low energy that many people experience during this cold weather.

Luckily, spring is right around the corner and sunny days and shorter nights are ahead.

Beat the winter blues by keeping your energy high and mood lifted.
