Getting up in the morning with good sleep helps you to feel fresh and less lethargic for your studies. Avoid all electronic devices after getting into bed at night as they make it difficult to fall asleep.
  • Keep Your Study Room Bright: One of the main reasons for depression in winters is the lack of light in the room which makes the study room filled with negative energy. Always ensure that you have enough light sources in the room. Keep the windows and curtains open, let the sun rays soak you up. If your room lacks a window, put artificial lights which can brighten the room.
