Winter is coming. And I’m not talking about Game of Thrones you nerds.

We all sort of dread the winter months full of grey skies, but maybe we can enjoy the season with just a simple change of mindset. Norwegians have embraced the winter and do not suffer from season depression that is seen in many other northern areas.

Read this article from Fast Company about the Norwegian approach to winter and how just a simple change of mindset can help you enjoy the next few months rather than suffer through them.

Also, supplementing with vitamin D may help. Studies show that many of us have low vitamin D levels, especially in the winter, and now it looks like vitamin D can help our fitness level as well. Check out this study that shows vitamin D improving exercise performance and lowering the risk for heart disease.
