WORK SMARTER NOT HARDER:  Coffee May Comfort Seasonal Depression

With the feel of Fall and the fewer hours of daylight, these days, some fall into a feeling of depression…  But there may be a simple way to brighten that Autumn mood:  It’s coffee.

And if you suffer with SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), that pumpkin spice latte may help you to stave off seasonal depression.  But plain old coffee will do it – hot or cold.

A study, conducted by the Institute for Scientific Information on Coffee, has found that drinking coffee, every four hours, helps to improve seasonal affective disorder.

Their findings also indicate that regular coffee intake could increase alertness and improve cognitive behaviors.

Light therapy and antidepressants – from your doctor – can help, as well.

Women are affected more often than men.  It’s no sign of weakness to get help with SAD.  It’s actually a sign of your strength.
