Now that it’s winter, you may be feeling a bit sadder than normal, have low energy, or even trouble concentrating. If you feel this way and it’s recent, know that you are not alone! You might be experiencing the common and very well named “Seasonal Affective Disorder” (S.A.D).
Interestingly, researchers have discovered that the reason behind Seasonal Affective Disorder is because of the lack of the amount of sunlight. In fact, a really great way to treat the condition is by getting sunlight!
So, this winter, be sure to try to go outside for a walk whenever you can while the sun is still shining to help avoid or deal with S.A.D!
