This episode is near and dear to my heart because I have experienced it and it’s definitely not fun. I’m bringing this to the podcast today because I want you to know that you are not alone in your feelings.
Seek a mental health professional if you think you are experiencing SAD.
Your mental health affects your physical health which in turn affects how you show up in your life and business.
Things you can do to navigate seasonal depression:
- Seek professional help
- Acknowledge your feelings
- Shift yourself to thinking of positive things
- Surround yourself with people that will uplift you
- Try things outside of the norm (get creative with how you spend your time)
- Go outside (yep – even if it’s cold)
Matthew 11:28-30 – “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
1 Peter 5:6-7 – Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
Philippians 4:13 – “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Mi’esha is an international school counselor, spiritual coach, and advocate for black women and families. She has dedicated her life to finding the fundamental ways to help others thrive in not only academia and school settings, but also in faith and spiritual development. At the core of who she is, Mi’esha is a giver and a motivator. If she could leave this earth having done anything, it would be to introduce women to Christ and the power of prayer. Not just any prayer but bold prayers with expectancy. From a touchy subject to a testimony, Mi’esha vulnerably shares her testimony of finding her birth father as an adult and reconnecting to a past and a void that once was linked to pain and confusion. Growing up with a father wound and having gone through stress, depression, and anxiety, Mi’esha knows first hand how God can heal and change the trajectory of your life. The sure thing is God did not design us to go through our
struggles alone. Therefore Mi’esha is on a mission to introduce women with family wounds to life the way God designed it, in boldness, expectancy, and truth.
