Fighting SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder)

Seasonal Affective Disorder is a very real condition that affects many of us throughout the year, but most often in the darker winter months that we have looming ahead of us. It often sneaks up on you; it will come slowly so that you gradually adjust to it rather than realising that something has changed. I find that for myself I often start noticing the effects after the holiday season ends, as the brightness and coziness of get-togethers taper off with the New Year, but many people do start feeling it quite early in the season. There are some easy ways to fight SAD and keep your energy up in the winter months!

Comments…

A quick housekeeping update to everyone- if you notice I’m responding to a comment that is four to five months old, it’s because I just discovered that WordPress has marked 200+ comments as spam! Most are from regular posters but I am so sorry to everyone that I didn’t see this before. I promise to check my spam filter on a daily basis from here on out to make sure it doesn’t happen again!

Until tomorrow,
The Historian!
