Short days, dark nights, cold, wet weather: The winter can be a real drag for a lot of people out there. Seasonal Affective Disorder (aptly abbreviated as SAD) is a thing, so if you find yourself battling the winter blues, know you're in good company.
While professional help should always be on the table, there are things you can do to help beat back the seasonal sads.
Start by getting out of the house. The most motivating way to do that is to meet up with friends and socialize. There's nothing that brightens the dark days like laughing with people who make you feel good.
