Depression and anxiety are words that I hear bandied about far more now than ever before.
I guess this is fantastic because having anxiety and depression is met with much less social scorn.
I’ve spent nearly our entire life battling and then learning to manage our mental and emotional health. It got a lot easier when I accepted that I may be this way all our life so, I need to find the things that make our anxiety and depression more manageable. A giant area of managing our anxiety was to get out of our Heating, Ventilation, and A/C protected zone and get some sun. It’s difficult to know but, sunshine makes an enormous difference in how I deal with our situation. I figured this out when I was in university. Subsequently, I have structured our life to be able to get the sun I need. That went so far as to move away from family and friends to a region where the sun shines far more than our beach loft area. I have lived in this region ever since. Now that I am getting older and less capable of outside activity, I augmented our sunshine treatments. We had a sunroom attached to our home. This is just great. I have worked from beach loft for the last 15 years and will do so until I am unable. Working at beach loft is fantastic however took some getting used to. The sunroom allows me the flexibility to be in the sunshine while I work or just take a chop and sit in the sun. The best area is that we have a dedicated Heating, Ventilation, and A/C unit, a ductless mini split, inside the sunroom. This makes our center for serenity open for corporation throughout the year.
