In medical terms, "Winter Depression" is a Seasonal Affective Disorder.
People staying in colder areas away from the equator are most likely to be affected by this syndrome. Since it is a type of mental depression, it can be treated normally using medications, professional counselling, healthy living and exposure to light.
It is estimated that almost 50% of the population in North America suffers from winter depression. Lack of sunlight is the primary cause of this type of depression. Symptoms include increased appetite, increased sleeping hours, irritability, anxiety, lethargy and general lack of interest. The symptoms start to manifest in fall, peak in winter and subside by spring.
• Follow a daily routine of sleeping, eating and exercising on time. Keep some spare time to pursue a hobby like reading or painting.
• Go for a vacation. Choose a tropical destination and take a week off from regular routine to avoid winter depression. Natural sunlight suppresses the hormone causing winter depression. Hence, try to spend as much time in the sun as possible.
• Postpone challenging jobs till after winter. This will ensure that you take on only limited responsibilities and fulfil them during the winter months. The more complex ones that require some degree of planning and execution can be done when one is feeling better.
• Invest in some good quality grow bulbs. These bulbs are used in plant nurseries to provide artificial light to indoor plants and have a light spectrum closest to natural sunlight. Spend some time daily in this light in the morning as it is known to be of immense help in maintaining a good physical and mental balance. Besides, it will also keep you energetic throughout the day.
• Eat healthy foods and drink plenty of water to keep your body nourished and healthy.
It is a known fact that winter depression miraculously goes away without any kind of treatment as soon as spring sets in but why wait till you are overweight, overburdened and your personal liferuns in a mess. If you follow the above mentioned simple measures, you can effortlessly sail through the winter months. Why crib and stay indoors with a glum look while you can enjoy the snow and hot chocolate?

In medical terms, "Winter Depression" is a Seasonal Affective Disorder.
Unlike Delhi, finding good restaurants in Ghaziabad district is like finding a needle in a haystack. Leaving aside a few, there are hardly some that gratify real foodies.
When an acquaintance of mine named Mocking Bird in Kaushambi before me, I casted doubt and squeezed eyebrows. However, on his insistence I agreed to visit the restaurant. On reaching the entrance I was greeted by well-behaved staff who escorted me to the place where I was supposed to dine. I personally liked this gesture.
The dining space was huge with comfortable couches and chairs. Some Tibetan letters were scribbled on the walls which read as mocking bird. The spaciousness of the restaurant raised my expectations to newer heights. I noticed a separate wide section across the dinning space and asked the reason for the same. The staff revealed that the separate section is specifically designed for live performances which can be on demand as well. Near one of the walls of this separate section, a DJ was preparing song tracks for some party that was to be organised that evening. After placing my order from a thick menu, I went to check the bar. Although the bar décor was nothing unusual, the hardly heard brands of liquor were really eye-catchy. Names of many international brands were difficult to pronounce. The bar manager explained me the sparkling wines and the food that should go with them. Trust me, the cocktails' fusion made here were really alluring.
Exquisitely garnished Murg Cheese Cream, Paneer Tikka and Chilly Chicken were served to us. The sumptuous taste of Murg Cheese Cream was going down to my heart from my tongue. The staff suggested us Namak Mandi Chicken Tikka and we ordered it too to taste. The taste was literally overwhelming. As the clock struck 21:00 we recalled that we had an important event to attend and concluded our exploration of this two months old restaurant.
Mocking Bird is undoubtedly a good restaurant in Ghaziabad. However, the tardiness of the staff can make you starve if you are really hungry. This is something this restaurant has to look into.
