Seasonal Affective Disorder – SAD ‘How to cheer up’

Ugh, winter. This season is a major, soul-sucking drag, and it’s basically a full-time job keeping yourself from plummeting into total despair during the dark winter months. But, there are ways to cheer yourself up during winter, though it takes a little creativity. Like the sneaky monster it is, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) comes for us all when the temperatures start to drop. However, SAD can be defeated — you just need the right pick-me-ups.

With the correct combo of positive tricks, you can keep that beautiful smile on that even more beautiful face of yours all the way to Spring. The best part is that most of these things are free. And you don’t even need to leave your house — which, especially for introverts (hi there!) — is really a dream come true. Also, none of them require a ton of effort, since most of us have zero energy right now anyway. Give one or all of them a try, and watch your mood instantly improve. Here are all the little ways to cheer yourself up during the winter, because despite the commonality of winter madness, happiness during the cold months is attainable.

1. Get all kinds of cozy – wherever you find yourself, get yourself comfortable;

2. Catch up on all the books you’ve wanted to read – If the chilly weather is keeping you locked indoors, take advantage of this forced downtime by exercising your brain. Read, and read some more. It’s a decision you will never regret;

3. Plan a trip – Even if your bank account hates you right now after wiping it out during holiday’s we have had plenty off, plan a trip. You don’t even need to book anything, because the act of simply planning something fun will cheer you up. It forces you to acknowledge that better days are coming, and winter will eventually end;

4. Catch up on your favourite shows – This is the perfect time of year to do this. Binge on the shows you haven’t been watching, and get all caught up by the time they return from winter hiatus;

5. Rearrange your furniture – your space can use a change, and since you’re stuck inside, now is the perfect time to do just that.

6. De-clutter your life – All of us accumulate so much crap. Especially after receiving a sack full of new goodies for the holidays, our houses are probably packed to the gills with things we no longer need. You can’t exactly “in with the new” until you go “out with the old,” you know? So gather up the stuff you no longer want, and donate it;

7. Watch summer movies – the memory of hot summer days will cheer your up;

8. Drink all the hot beverages – This is the season to suck down all the lattes you can stomach. Try ’em all. Make your own at home. Better not be SAD, be happy, summer is just around the corner.

Cheer up!

Hospitality Services

We know that your company is built on a solid foundation that is comprised of responsibility, passion, experience, quality and performance.

The importance of your valued client’s and staff’s health are of utmost importance when it comes to any trauma incident. With 17 years’ experience in the trauma cleaning industry, we realise that sometimes the most unforeseen events will take place at hospitality premises.

With than on mind, we have responded and assisted in many cleanups where Housekeeping and cleaning staff cannot restore and decontaminate an area where a traumatic or accidental incident occurred. We realise that people may use your facilities to commit suicide (Hotels and B&B’s) as the cleanup will not be the responsibility of the person’s families, nor will they have to deal with the aftermath. Unfortunately, this created a whole new problem for the hospitality industry having to deal with this matter.

Instructing a cleaning company that does not specialize in crime scene cleaning, will not only create a more hazardous situation as their chemicals were not formalized to decontaminate the area, which in tern will create more dangerous bacteria, but you will need to get it done again. Your cleaning staff are not trained in the art of crime scene cleaning and will only remove the cosmetic side of the aftermath, and not remove the source.

Having a scene cleaned properly and correctly should be an integral part of your regulations where health and safety is concerned. We urge you to list Bloodsisters Crime Scene Cleanup (Pty) Ltd as your preferred service provider to ensure all systems are in place when our services are required.

The fact is, Bloodsisters Crime Scene Cleanup (Pty) Ltd is one, if not the only company in South Africa that have all the required permissions and permits that is required by law to service our client’s need, legally and professionally.

Why we exist

Most of us have seen what a crime scene looks like; especially after everyone has left the scene. Whether in real life or in the media, most people are under the misconception that the Emergency Medical Services or even the SAPS are responsible to assist in the cleanup of such scenes. Nobody generally think about this issue until they are in this situation. If you are ever in a situation like this, would you really want to be responsible for this type of cleaning at your house?

Choose wisely
