3. Beautiful things
Does the world seem gray and dull to you? Surround yourself with beautiful things. By the way, the mood is lifted not only by new clothes, but also by bright details of the interior. Perhaps, in order to add color to your own life, it will be enough to decorate the house with autumn leaves.

4. Friends and family
When it’s raining outside, you don’t feel like leaning out from under a warm blanket. But loneliness is not the best ally in the fight against autumn depression. Try to meet with friends as often as possible, and spend evenings surrounded by loved ones.
5. Healthy sleep
Don’t forget about healthy sleep. Chronic lack of sleep will only exacerbate your condition. Take a bath before bed, listen to soothing music or watch your favorite movie — this contributes to a sound and quality sleep.

6. Great time of the year
Look at autumn with different eyes. Yes, the gray sky, endless rains, cold wind — all this does not add optimism. However, only in autumn the trees put on burning clothes, and a bright yellow carpet of fallen leaves spreads under their feet.
Bad mood? A walk in the autumn forest will do you good. And if you’re lucky, you’ll return home with a full basket of mushrooms!
