Have you been in the sun today? Dr. Oz (on Oprah) said we need 10 minutes of sun on our skin per day to get enough Vitamin D. Just don't get it on your face and hands! If you aren't out in the sun (or there hasn't been sun shining where you live in days, you need to be taking a vit. D supplement. I suppose one of the day therapy lamps would help as well. But the sunlight needs to shine directly on your skin for 10 minutes. And if you are bundled head to toe in jackets and scarves and boots that's not going to happen, now is it?
I'm glad I live in S. Calif. I make an effort to get some sun daily, esp. since hearing that the sun for 30 minutes a day increases the mood enhancing seratonin that our body makes. So get out there and get some sun!
