I posted previously about trying to get ahead of my winter depression this year. Well operation is full steam ahead, I have been taking Vitamin D supps and using a SAD lamp in the mornings for approx. 3 weeks now as well as doing housework in a morning so I a) have an active start to the day and b) don't have to contemplate housework at night when my energy levels are zero.
Overall I feel I have much more energy, wake up feeling ready to get up rather than like I want to sleep forever - although I know winter has far from kicked in properly yet.
However one weird thing I've noticed is that since I've made the changes, I've started having the most random flashbacks - to mundane things like a shop I once went in, a random classroom at school, or playing a specific game in my cousin's room when we were little. I've googled and found that this can be associated with increased mental stimulation and recovery from depression, so it would tally I guess.
Does anybody else experience these?
