Crystals For Winter Wellbeing | Overcoming The Winter Blues


Eight crystals for winter wellbeing that will also help you boost your mood, and enhance your energy. These same crystals will also help you overcome the Winter blues and assist with feeling more positive…

What Are The Winter Blues?

We are very lucky in Australia that very few of us actually suffer from true winter blues.

The winter blues refers to feeling down or a bit depressed during the winter months. Some other effects are feeling tired, or having a foggy mind. It’s more common in those parts of the world where winter is colder and often darker.

These days it is well known that a lack of daylight affects our hormone levels and consequently our moods too. More so in the northern hemisphere; some people suffer a medical condition called S.A.D. (Seasonal Affective Disorder). If you suspect you may have it, you should see a doctor. The same with depression, it’s always wise to get medical advice.


What You Can Do Aside From Using Crystals for Winter Wellbeing.

Many of us tend to almost hibernate in winter. So, it’s important to stay involved in life and its activities. Be sure to spend plenty of time outdoors. However, if it’s too cold or wintery outside you can at least sit by a window—both our physical and mental health need to be exposed to as much natural light as possible.

Make sure you do some regular exercise. It doesn’t have to be strenuous; walking works well, and if you can’t get outside, try using a treadmill. You could also try stretching, Tai Chi, Qi Gong, or yoga for example.

Healthy Eating is also important for keeping up your energy and vitality.

Try eating more fruit and vegetables and remember to drink plenty of water. Many of us crave sugary processed foods or carbs during winter. While these may temporarily boost our energy in the short term, they leave you feeling flat and more tired later.

How To Use Crystals For Winter Wellbeing.

I chose these eight crystals to cover different aspects of winter’s energies. As always choose the one you feel is best suited, or even combine them. You probably won’t need all of them at once, though there is no reason why you couldn’t do so.

They can be carried with you, worn as jewellery, meditated with, placed on their associated chakra, or used in a crystal layout or grid. Crystals for winter wellbeing can be placed around your home too.

We tend to spend more time indoors and at home during winter so why not create a sanctuary for yourself and your family? Any of the crystals above would be beneficial and help to generate the right winter vibe. Decorate or place them around your home in the areas where you spend most of your time. They will bring light and warm energy into your home. You may choose to create a small seasonal altar using your Crystals for Winter Wellbeing.
