The weather can keep us indoors for several reasons and it can really have a negative affect on your mood. Sometimes it's too cold, dark, too buggy or just too rainy and wet. Or sometimes in the summer it's just too hot to be outdoors. Nothing beats the feeling of the first warm spring day and everyone is outside enjoying the perfect day. It is our goal to capture that feeling and give you a place to hang out and play every day.

6 Suggestions for fighting the blues or SAD: According to Dawn LaFrance, Counseling Center at Colgate University. For more information on this article see links below.
1. Try to pinpoint what is getting you down. Did your favorite sports team lose? Are you over-stressed from finances or job responsibilities, or just depressed from the lack of physical or social activities? 

2. Don't let your mood dictate your plans. Don't hibernate and get off the couch. Get outside if possible and stay active. Get together with friends and family and help each other stay moving. 

3. Watch your diet. The winter months can make us crave comfort food and more carbs. Also we tend to go out to eat more for something to do. A poor diet can really affect your energy.

4. Work out. You don't even have to have a specific goal or plan. Just staying active can really boost your mood. Grab a friend, stay active, start a hobby and make some time to play every day. 

5. Get more light into your life. Try to get outside as much as possible or turn on some extra lights. Specific lighting techniques can have a positive affect treating seasonal depression and also help you produce vitamin D.

6. Don't make life-changing decisions. "If you are in a funk give yourself some time before making any major decisions. Wait a month and see if you still feel the same", states LaFrance.
