❄️Try to make the most of natural light. You could try to spend time in natural light by going for a walk. If this is difficult, for example if you are self-isolating, try to let in light during the day time by opening up blinds and curtains.
🌤️Planning ahead. You could try to make meals in advance and freeze them if you know you are likely to lack the energy to do this during the most difficult period of the season.
