Seasonal depression- It’s as simple as this- plants need sun to grow 🌱 We do too 🌞
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
I had no idea what seasonal depression was or that I was being affected by it for years. I just thought, I’m depressed, something is wrong with me or sometimes I get sad. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Sometimes I do just get sad because of life and all its uncertainty, but seasonal depression has to do with winter and your bodies affects of being deficient in vitamin D 🌞
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
It affects most people living north or south of the equator, places that get lots of rain, heavy winters or are in general pretty cold. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Summer and warmer climates allow us to feel comfortable in temperature enough to take off our hats and heavy jackets to let some sun light in. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
VD activates genes that regulate the immune system and release neurotransmitters (dopamine & serotonin) that affect brain function and development. Researchers have found VD receptors on a handful of cells located in regions in the brain- the same regions that are linked with depression. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Deficiency of VD has significant medical and psychological effects. Every tissue in the body has VD receptors, including the brain, heart, muscles, and immune system, which means vitamin D is needed at every level for the body to function.

So basically take all the trips in the winter or rainy seasons to make sure you’re getting enough VD, or take supplements 🌞 πŸ§šπŸ»β€β™€οΈ Just thought you all should know 😍

I still look in the mirror and forget to be loving towards this human skin that I’m traveling in. Its a miracle, you’re a miracle. Taking for granted what we have and letting those outside thoughts that were never ours creep in and affect the perception of ourselves is easy. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
What’s hard is breaking down those walls that have been up for way too long and shedding those things you’ve let sit on your shoulders and weigh you down.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
I have to remind myself it’s a practice. It takes patience, consistency and compassion to fully accept and love ourselves. It takes clarity to see ourselves for all that we are.
