  1. In the Chicago area, go to the Garfield Park Conservatory. The many green growing plants and the flower displays always give me a boost in spirit and takes away that depressing feeling of too many gray days.

  2. New rearch is showing that Vitamin D supplementation is not only advised but crutial to both physical and mental well being. Numerous scientific studies have show that it not only lessens the chance for some types of cancer such as colon and prostate but also helps with depression especially seasonal affective disorder (SAD). It may be that is why exposure to the sun lessens SAD. Studies have shown that the majority of those living in the midwest have significant loss of Vitamin D when they are given blood tests.
