The Darkest Day

December 20th, 2009

So today, December 20, is one of the darkest days of the year. A time of year when the cold chills deep and comfort foods beckon: chocolate, deeply cheesy pizza, and vodka (does that count as a food?)

As a person who can get pretty dragged down by the darkness (you’ve all heard of SAD, of course) I have just two things to share:

One, if you suffer from SAD, what has helped me immensely is the introduction of light (lots and lots of light!) into my December/January/February months. 100 watt “Reveal” brand bulbs have been a blessing. I am also occasionally known to visit the lighting display section of Home Depot. Hard to believe how quickly my whole mood perks up.

Two, if the darkness tends to drag you down, remember this: starting tomorrow, the days just get progressively brighter.

I’ve found that to be a very comforting thought to get me through a lot of situations in life.
