2. Make Social Plans
It can be tempting to plop yourself on your couch and watch endless hours of TV when you’re experiencing Seasonal Affective Disorder, but doing so will only make things worse. Instead of hibernating, make plans with friends and family. Get out of the house at least once a week, if not more. Even meeting a friend for a cup of coffee could lift your spirits. Going out could also help you adjust better to the fall and winter months, and make things feel a little less doom and gloom by preventing the seasonal changes from affecting your social life.
