Combat those negative feelings by taking care of your health first and foremost. Go to the gym or take an exercise class, eat plenty of fruit and vegetables, get enough sleep and hydrate.
If possible, take a long weekend to a warmer destination or even to a nearby city. The change of scenery will provide a boost of energy and excitement to your usual routine.

Consult with your doctor before making any health-related changes. Consider speaking to a therapist if your symptoms are severe.
