Conquering the Winter Blues


We’re in the middle of it. That time of the year where it is colder, the days are shorter and  the skies are greyer. Conquering the winter blues becomes a struggle but the great news is, it doesn’t need to stay that way! There is a new self care practice by SOLIUS available to us right in our neighbourhood.

I had the pleasure of experiencing light therapy by Solius at Wellness Garage, our neighbours in White Rock. On they explain that “In less than 5 minutes, Solius can produce over 10 times more Vitamin d than an hour of midday summer sunlight.”

I’m someone who experiences S.A.D. (seasonal affective disorder) symptoms. Natural sun light and the warmth of the rays instantly changes my mood. When natural day light is at a minimum, it is nice to know that I have a healthy option of getting Vitamin D benefits during the colder, greyer months.



Walking into the Solius pod really felt like I was stepping into the future. I loved how I had the option to personalize my experience – mountain top views or tropical beach shores? I chose the latter of course!

Our neighbours at Wellness Garage houses 1 of 2 Solius machines available in the greater Vancouver area. Visit the Solius website to learn more about the benefits of light therapy and how you can integrate this into your self care practice. Download their app and use promo code BEWELL for a special discount on your first month of light therapy!
