Central Perk Coffeehouse, named after the fictional shop featured on “Friends”, opened its first permanent location in Boston — and it used the occasion to honor Matthew Perry. For the grand opening, the coffee shop announced in a press release that it would “distribute the Chandler Bing ‘Can I Interest You in a Sarcastic Comment’ sleeve…for the entire day, in honor of the life and enduring legacy of Matthew Perry.” The shop, which licensed the name, is located on Boston’s famed Newbury Street, and is modeled after the spot where the Friends characters hung out.

With the end of Daylight Saving Time, the resulting lack of sunlight at the end of the day, plus colder weather and less time outdoors, can have an impact on our mental well-being. Here are some strategies for boosting mood and managing the winter blues…

Light therapy: A light therapy box that emits bright, full-spectrum light, mimicking natural sunlight. This can help alleviate some of the symptoms associated with the winter blues and SAD.

Exercise: Regular physical activity, even if it’s indoors, can improve mood and energy levels. Consider indoor activities like yoga, dancing, or using exercise equipment.

Keep to a sleep schedule: Regular, adequate and high-quality sleep can have a positive impact on mood.

Watch your diet: Eat a well-balanced diet with a focus on whole, nutritious foods. And be mindful of sugar and carb intake, which can lead to energy crashes.

Be social: Stay in touch with loved ones, and engage in activities with others, even if it means doing so virtually.

Set goals and have structure: Establish achievable daily goals and maintain a routine. This can provide a sense of purpose and accomplishment.

Practice mindfulness and relaxation: Meditation and relaxation techniques help manage stress and anxiety.

Spend time outdoors: Get outside at some point during daylight hours. Even on cloudy days, exposure to natural light can be beneficial.

Engage in self-care: Do things you enjoy, like reading, taking warm baths or pampering yourself in other ways.

Practice gratitude: Keep a gratitude journal to focus on the positive aspects of life and cultivate a more optimistic outlook.
