Vitamin D

Most of us know about needing sunshine to get our vitamin D. This is a problem with the decreased daylight hours, and doubly tough if you are having trouble getting yourself out of bed when your mood is low.

You need vitamin D to keep your immune system at top notch, which is even more vital in a season that is ridden with viruses.

When your vitamin D is low, depression is knocking at your doorpost. You can increase your vitamin D supplement during the winter season to keep your mood-boosting power on high.
