5 tips to help you through the Winter Blues

Strategies to help those with Seasonal Affective Disorder

            We are now approaching those winter months where the days get shorter and Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) becomes more prevalent for many of us. It is estimated that a mild form of SAD affects 10-20% of people, and 4-6% of people will experience winter depression.

            We typically will spend most of our days indoors working and by the time we head home it’s already dark out. The lack of sunlight can lead to feeling blue, which can then make it harder to get out and enjoy the sun on the weekends. It’s a vicious cycle that keeps us feeling low and tired.
