Are You SAD?
Are You Experiencing Seasonal Affective Disorder?
According to the Mayo Clinic:
"Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that's related to changes in seasons — SAD begins and ends at about the same times every year. If you're like most people with SAD, your symptoms start in the fall and continue into the winter months, sapping your energy and making you feel moody. Less often, SAD causes depression in the spring or early summer.
"Treatment for SAD may include light therapy (phototherapy), psychotherapy and medications.
The Mayo Clinic advises, you not to "brush off that yearly feeling as simply a case of the 'winter blues' or a seasonal funk that you have to tough out on your own. Take steps to keep your mood and motivation steady throughout the year."
