4 Easy Ways To Beat The Winter Blues In The Dordogne

Are you suffering from the winter blues also called the Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) ?
Here’s 3 tips for boosting your energy, mood, and outlook on life!


1- Walking:
It’s no secret, walking is good to lift the mood!
In Dordogne, you’ll find lots of easy family friendly walks.
The latest walk we did was in Mescoules, a 4,4km trail (“Boucle De Grand Champ) using the free app randogps.
This hike has everything you want: easy enough for the whole family, lots of open spaces with woods, vineyards, family lands… and if you’re lucky like us, you’ll spot 7 deers running accross the fields!

2- Fitness & Fun:
What about exercise that isn’t exercise? If like me you’re not a big fan of fitness…. at all….pop in Pombonne Park in Bergerac and try the brand new fitness trail which features 8 fitness stations (270m long)!
Available for free use all year round … it’s a great way to stay in good shape, try new exercises without having to go to a gym or enjoy fitness challenges between families and friends.

What better way to enjoy winter than cozying up with a nice, hot cup of something delicious and healthy?
A trip to our favorite coffee shop in Monpazier, Café Ecureuil, is garanteed to bring a spring in your step!
They are now launching 3 new hot drinks to keep you warm and healthy: j matcha latte (green: detoxifies and calms the mind) beetroot latte (pink: improves blood flow and lower blood pressure) and tumeric latte (yellow: fights inflammation and protects the heart)!
