The clocks are going back next week, which means shorter days and longer nights. As people of colour, we tend to suffer during the winter months, not just because of the cold, but because we need more sunlight; do you feel lethargic, lack energy, feel unmotivated to do anything, and generally feel ‘under the weather’ during the long, grey winter months? You could be suffering from a form of depression known as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), which is caused by lack of natural sunlight. It affects people of colour the most because our MELANIN needs sunlight for us to be able to function properly. If affects our nervous system, and mental health when we don’t get enough sun in our skin.
What can you do to heal yourself?
Many of us are mis-diagnosed and prescribed with anti-depressants, when what we really need is a good dose of vitamin D! The best thing you can do is to get in the sun, even if it’s just for a week or two, to top up your melanin. This will give you the boost you need to endure the rest of the winter.
I intuitively healed myself from SAD with the bright colours in my paintings. This led me to study Colour Therapy, which I now teach on my Retreats. You can learn more about how colours affect your mood and emotions, and download my art to benefit from the colours in them too!
Affordable holidays in the Gambia
You can also join me on The Self Love Retreat (December, January or March), The L.O.V.E Retreat (Feb 2019), or the Nurture Your Inner Child Retreat (March 2019).
As people of colour, we need the sun! I’m now in the process of setting up a Retreat Home in the Gambia to be able to offer affordable holidays for you to come and get what you need; the sun, a connection with your Motherland, and the time to re-discover your Self. On The Self Love Retreat, I facilitate 5 Self-nurturing workshops, designed to help you re-connect with your inner Self. We also enjoy cultural day trips, and a Pamper Day at the most luxurious hotel in the Gambia! The L.O.V.E. Retreat is being facilitated by Qigong master Wayne ‘wonder’ Harris, and is suitable for singles and couples! The Nurture Your Inner Child Retreat is for you, if you would like to get your creative juices flowing again! Click on the links for details of each Retreat, they’re only £499-£599 each!
