December 21st is the shortest day of the year and also the first day of winter.  As the days get shorter and the nights get longer we are okay during the holiday season with that but after a while, the lack of sunlight can send some people off into a depressed mode if they work long hours and get up in the dark to go to work and come back in the dark.  Make your home brighter this winter season and light some candles when you are home, whether real candles or the battery operated ones.  The goal is to create a warm and bright indoor feeling.  If you are able to get out at lunch time, do so and get some sun as you walk outside, the benefits will do you good.
