Winter isn’t that far off and most of us are preparing wood for the fireplaces, pulling out the carpets, and filling out our cabinets with soup ingredients! But for all you love birds and sentimental fools, here are 12 dark winter aesthetics to boost your mood during your short days and long nights.
Did you know that dark winter aesthetics actually have a positive effect on your mood? Studies show that they release melatonin (a relaxing hormone) into your brain which creates a calming and relaxing effect. That said, most people experience the opposite which is due to the lack of vitamin D.
12 Dark Winter Aesthetics To Relax & Bring You Hope
Dark days bring out dark moods and the best way to beat the winter blues is by adding some vitamin D and Vitamin C-rich foods to your diet. Go for a walk whenever you can and try to get enough sunlight when possible. Now that I’ve done some mothering, let’s begin with my handpicked dark winter aesthetics wallpapers.

I actually love this image and what it stands for, seeing those slight rays popping up behind the trees gives you hope for a brand-new day. Even though it says “the calm before the storm” I know that there is also a long-lasting and mesmerizing calm after the storm!
This image is breathtaking! It speaks a thousand words, yes, sometimes the road is long, it’s dark, gloomy, and harsh but we always manage to see the light at the end of the tunnel because we are soo much stronger than we think we are.
This is a perfect example of how seasons change. It’s dark and gloomy one day and bright and sunny the next. You never stay in the same position forever, everything changes so make the best of what you got right now and live in the moment. Don’t you ever let time pass you by!
It doesn’t matter where life takes you, what matters is that you have someone by your side to hold your hand and give you a shoulder to lean on. Yes, this one is sad but it should make you appreciate the one who is always there for you.
It’s true that a picture speaks a thousand words and this dark winter aesthetic says it all. Hope will always find its way to you through dark times. You will stand tall again, your light will shine bright one fine day! Whatever heartache or hardship you are going through will be over soon! This one says “hope”.
No one knows the future, we make decisions based on feelings without considering the impact it has on others. We can shape our destiny but cannot predict what it holds. We do not know what lies ahead so we must tread carefully. After all, is said and done, we must keep on going forward. One step at a time… Here’s the link.
I have absolutely no idea why I added this one to the list. Maybe because it reminds me of the church on Christmas eve. Or maybe it makes me wonder why it always snows during Christmas. Feels like a higher power on the move. Just my 2 cents! You?
There may be lightning, there may be thunder, there may be rainy days and stormy weather. There may be ups and there definitely will be downs but at the end of the day, there will always be a ray of sunshine and calm. You will rise again. You will stand tall again. Hang in there! Here is the link.
It,s dark, it’s cold, it’s lonely, but imagine this image in time-lapse, the snow melts, the trees come alive again, the flowers pop out their colorful heads, and the sun rises. You are left with a calming meditative setting that makes you appreciate every moment of being alive. From Pinterest.
The road is tough, you can hardly see ahead of you, and your car engine is growling from the amount of pressure it’s using to push through the thick snow. It’s so dark, your vision is blurry. You keep on going knowing that your car might give up at any moment but it doesn’t matter because whatever happens, you are going home and nothing is going to stop you! Link.
Venturing into the unknown all alone is scary, you never know what lies ahead but sometimes, it’s all you can do, keep on going. Life is all about putting your fears aside, taking chances, and never giving up. Here is the source.
This one makes me wonder about what lies beyond our universe. With billions of stars lighting our night skies, I just wonder if each individual star represents life, do we become stars in the afterlife? I’d like to think we do because at least then we know that there is a bright light in each and every one of us.
Oh, what a beautiful world! It is always there for us when we wake up in the morning, it takes care of us and meets our every need as humans. When we are asleep, it never stops doing its job, it is predictable and dependable. It is the creation of God and we need to appreciate, be grateful, and be thankful for all that we have. Source.
