Complete Guide to Surviving Monsoon Depression with Niraamaya


Unveiling the Dark Clouds: Causes of Monsoon Depression

Monsoon depression, also known as seasonal affective disorder (SAD), is a mood disorder that affects individuals during the rainy season. The lack of sunlight, increased humidity, and disrupted routines are some of the primary culprits behind this seasonal blues. The reduced exposure to sunlight can lead to imbalances in serotonin, a neurotransmitter responsible for regulating mood. Additionally, the gloomy weather and limited outdoor activities can hamper social interactions, further exacerbating the sense of isolation and sadness.

By immersing yourself in this harmonious setting, you can learn to appreciate the beauty and tranquillity that monsoons bring. Connect with the healing power of nature, and let the rain wash away your worries.
  • Mindful Movement: Engaging in physical activities releases endorphins, which boost mood and combat depression. Niraamaya Wellness Retreats offer a plethora of options, from yoga and meditation to rejuvenating spa therapies.

Weathering the Storm: Tips to Thrive

  • Stay active indoors by practising yoga or engaging in home workouts. Movement boosts your energy levels and keeps the blues at bay.
  • Stay connected with loved ones through virtual gatherings or phone calls. Social interactions are essential for mental well-being, even if physical distancing is necessary.
  • Stay hydrated and nourished. Sip on warm herbal teas and consume foods that are easy to digest. Opt for warm, comforting meals that boost your immunity.
  • Prioritize self-care. Indulge in warm oil massages, take relaxing baths, and engage in activities that promote relaxation and self-reflection.
