Our Top Nine Strategies for SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder)

As the vibrant hues of summer transition into the cozy embrace of autumn, we find ourselves at a pivotal juncture that often goes unnoticed—how our mental well-being often shifts with the change of seasons and the anticipation of holidays.

It’s a time when the world around us undergoes a profound transformation, mirroring the shifts that can occur within our own minds and bodies. In this edition of our newsletter, we’ll explore symptoms like anxiety, depression, and mind racing and offer powerful and effective holistic strategies to navigate them with resilience by sharing our top nine strategies for managing our seasonal shifts in our mental health and we’ll share a special invitation to the MHH Life Team Approach.

The Seasonal Shift and Holiday Stress: A Time of Change

As the days quickly grow shorter and the nights longer, we bid farewell to the sun-drenched days of summer. The diminishing daylight hours can disrupt our circadian rhythms, leaving us susceptible to mood changes, anxiety, and energy fluctuations commonly known as seasonal affective disorder.

To add to the changes in our circadian rhythm from the changes in the season, the approaching holidays, while joyous, can also bring added stress and anxiety. The pressure to create the perfect holiday experience, combined with family gatherings, gift shopping, and the whirlwind of festivities, can for many exacerbate symptoms of mental distress.

Anxiety and Stress:

As the days become shorter and the nights grow longer, some individuals may experience heightened anxiety levels. For some, the transition to autumn can bring a sense of uncertainty, with the diminishing daylight affecting our circadian rhythms. This disruption can leave us feeling restless and on edge, while for others the approaching holidays can compound this anxiety as we navigate the pressures of understanding and protecting our boundaries, family politics, travel, gift-giving, social engagements, and other expectations.

Anxiety can be very triggering and exhausting, and if not addressed properly, it can lead to biochemical changes in the body and neurochemical changes in the brain that leave us feeling depleted, sick, tired, depressed, and can also lead to high blood pressure, hormone imbalances, and even Type 2 diabetes!

Laughter: A Missing Daily Nutrient
by Rosita Alvarez, Brain and Emotional Stress Repatterning Practitioner

Do humans need the pleasure of laughter? We are one of the few species who belly-laugh loudly. It signals the continuation of connected play. Laughing on a daily basis not only brings relief from pain and tension, it literally signals our brain and body to release healing chemicals and hormones that help us heal and maintain our health and vitality.

Sarcasm, when translated from the Greek language as sarkazein, means “tear flesh.” This is the model of humor I experienced most painfully in my childhood. I could never trust my dad’s humor to be safe, and it seemed confusing and mean to others or to me. I later married a very funny person who constantly joked, and thankfully, about one out of the nine jokes he made daily was so good I could justify listening to the other eight. He was a joke collector and made, not only our family but also his beloved acupuncture clients, laugh often. They said his humor and their laughter were as much a part of their healing as was the Traditional Chinese Medicine.

I will never forget when my sense of humor was liberated from the effects of parental sarcasm the night he said at dinner, with many friends present, “What do you get when you have a dozen Rositas?” My old childhood fear of sarcasm answered quickly and quietly in my mind all these negative answers… “A pile of mush, a pack of deer staring into the headlights of the car, a messy messy house…” Nobody gave him the right answer and he said, “A beautiful bouquet.”

I burst into tears as this utter contradiction to my mindset washed away the pain of anticipated shame. Rosita means “little rose” in Spanish. I cried briefly, but hard, and from that time on, my mind could finally imagine funny answers, outcomes, and new perspectives with more ease. It was an energetic block to humor that I had carried and not, as I had believed, that I was missing the “funny gene.”

Our programs at Modern Holistic Health teach many tools and resources for overcoming the root causes of trauma and poor health. Of course, there is nothing funny about the effects of abuse or abuse itself. But accessing humor, even in the worst of situations, allows us to survive and can lessen what could otherwise be interpreted as traumatic experiences. You may have heard this as told in stories by Holocaust survivors.

A couple of months ago in one of our group repatterning sessions in our Mind Body Energy program, we discussed integrating our growth to allow quantum leaps of change and reverse old ways of spiraling down in certain situations. A “diffusion” technique of changing perspectives was called for, and I had everyone re-imagine their difficult situation generating the outcome they wanted with humor:

  • ● To see it instead in cartoon form…
  • ● Or with exaggerated aspects that created humor in the situation…
  • ● Or to bring in superheroics…
  • ● Or make it like a Charlie Chaplain-style redo with piano music…

Real Solutions for Mental Health That You Need To Know

Every single one of us has experienced feeling sluggishness or dysfunction on a mental level – whether it be forgetting where you left the car keys or something more serious like a bout of depression or anxiety. But it often becomes a serious matter when it lasts for months or even years without resolving.

This can have a serious impact on the quality of your life.

In addition, we are now seeing a huge spike in the onset of more serious cognitive and neurological diseases like Parkinson’s, Dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease which has become the top 3 cause of disability and death worldwide.

In fact, brain diseases and mental health struggles are silently sweeping our nation and the world…

Every day more and more people are suffering from debilitating mental health issues – from depression and anxiety to Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.

As a society, we have accepted mental decline or dysfunction as a normal part of our human existence… but it is anything but normal. 50 years ago it was rare to see people developing these diseases but now we are not only seeing it happen at an alarming rate, it’s happening to people as young as 40!

I personally waged an intense battle against anxiety, depression, aphasia, and complete memory loss… and I was one of the fortunate ones because I discovered how to overcome it and regain my health in both mind and body. So, I know that struggle… and I know how you too can win.

I will be sharing everything I learned and how we are helping thousands around the world reclaim the health of their brain and body in my 5 Part Series, Your Brain and Mental Health Masterclass, which is FREE for you for a limited time.

In this highly informative 5-day event, where I unravel the mysteries of mental health conditions and brain-related diseases and provide real and proven methods to reclaim your brain and body health so that you can end your suffering and get back the life of vitality you deserve.

  • ● Anxiety
  • ● Trauma as a root cause
  • ● Depression
  • ● Memory loss
  • ● Why medications can make you worse
  • ● The most common root causes of mental health conditions
  • ● Proven approaches that work
  • ● And so much more!

You will walk away with a treasure trove of knowledge that will guide you in living your life free from these ailments that threaten your vitality and the human experience you desire.

Do you have the skill you need to reduce your costs of living and improve your food sourcing?

Global pandemic, economic collapse, bank runs, dollar devaluation, deflation, hyperinflation, power outages, food shortages, water contamination, Internet failures…

It’s 2023 and we’ve now seen events around the world that have left many of us, including myself, in disbelief. So what do we do about it? How can we become more resilient, more resourceful, and less dependent on consumerism?

It’s not unlikely that things will continue to get worse, namely inflation and the cost of food and clean water.
