The darkenss is coming!

Icelandic winter can be tough. Most people experience tiredness, weight gain, sleeping problems and get sick really easily. I do. Here is what the Icelandic directorate of health advises for winter:

  • go to sleep early to have an easier time to wake up in the morning

  • exercise regularly

  • be as much out in daylight as possible

  • eat healthy

  • avoid stress


A daylight lamp or wake up light can help with more serious forms of tiredness/depression during winter (such as Seasonal Affective Disorder).

I try to go to bed early and use a day light lamp to wake up (and not miss my bus) as I struggle with insomnia every winter. My friend and me also go swimming together to encourage each other.
What do you guys do to stay active in winter? What are fun activities/outings one can do in winter?
