According to HopkinsMedicine.org:  Seasonal affective disorder, or SAD, is type of depression. It happens during certain seasons of the year—most often fall or winter.  It is thought that shorter days and less daylight may trigger a chemical change in the brain, leading to symptoms of depression.  Light therapy and antidepressants can help treat it, 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.

 

  • Drinking coffee every four hours can improve the symptoms of seasonal affective disorder.
