Try a Winter Garden to Improve Mood

No need to wait for spring to experience Mother Nature’s greenery; savor the rewards now with an indoor garden. This mood enhancer and positive distraction is easy and inexpensive to create. A Google image-search of "indoor garden ideas" will make you excited about getting started. Winter, with its shorter and grayer days, can be a difficult time for those who experience symptoms of depression. If that’s you, the delight of a small indoor winter garden and watching sprouts go from turf to table may be the uplift you need. (Seek counseling help if the blues linger on.)

The Life-Work Connections Employee Assistance Program is brought to you by Well-U, helping eligible individuals to assess issues, and provide short-term counseling and referrals.
