Prevent Seasonal Depression



Don’t get me wrong, Michigan winters provide plenty of things to look forward to. We have Holidays, snow angels, sledding, New Years, etc. However, these frigid months in The Mitten are also laced with their fair share of undesirable traits as well. You know what I’m talking about… waking up 15 minutes earlier to scrape a thick layer of ice off of your windshield, shoveling the same path of snow for the 5th time in 7 days, and let’s not forget the sky seemingly turning black before you’ve even finished your dinner. I don’t know about you, but I’m having PTSD just thinking about it. There’s no denying it, winter is coming my friends.. and there’s nothing we can do about it.


For many, these blizzardous months can lead to seasonal depression. Often referred to as SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), this is a type of depression that is related to changes in seasons. SAD typically begins and ends at about the same time each year, often starting in the fall and lasting through the winter. It can drain you of your energy and cause you to feel moody or irritable, making it difficult to get out and do the things you love. I would never pretend to be a doctor, but I would strongly encourage those suffering from seasonal depression to combat those winter blues with some good old fashioned fun. This could come in the form of bowling, joining an indoor sporting league, practicing yoga, or committing to an adult dance class.


The weather outside may be frightful, but the only thing you should be afraid of is missing out on one of Jordan Mac’s invigorating dance classes. With more steps than reindeer on rooftops, these classes will help you dance and prance your way into a happier holiday season. It’s hard enough trying to find ways to exercise and get the blood pumping during these freezing cold times that are upon us, so you might as well get some enjoyment out of it, right? Sometimes you have to get out from under the covers in order to truly uncover what it is that you’ve been missing. During a time period where it is more likely than usual to encounter sadness, it is critical that you are able to escape and find your own happy place.


So kick off those snow boots and slip into your dancing shoes.. It’s time to boogy.
