Can I be honest? Cabin fever is real and during the winter, it can ruin your regularly functioning homeschool routine. Kids start climbing the walls, whining about being bored and saying they have nothing to do. The winter blues in my house can stop us in our tracks.
What are the Winter Blues?
Many people don’t believe the winter blues really exist. They find it hard to believe a change in seasons can impact your mood. Scientific evidence shows the seasons can affect your mood because of the way your body responds to sunlight. The sunlight has a positive effect on the hormones in your body. Since the winter has less sunlight, it is no surprise that more melatonin is produced which causes lethargy and even depression.
