The Winter Blues [in the media]

Wednesday, August 05, 2015

A recent McCrindle Research study shows that more than a third of all Australians suffer from the Winter Blues. Social analyst Mark McCrindle features on the Daily Edition to show how the chilly weather really affects us and how we can beat the blues.

Aussie's in Winter are:

  • 55% more likely to oversleep
  • 47% tendency to overeat
  • 42% reduced social life
  • 26% increased pessimism

How to beat the Winter blues:

  • Keep social
  • Stay healthy
  • Plan things to look forward to

Welcome to our blog...

We have a passion for research that tells a story, that can be presented visually, that brings about change and improves organisations. And we hope these resources help you know the times.
