Do you feel bad every winter

 Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) might be the culprit.

SAD is a form of depression typically starting in the fall when the daylight shortens and persisting throughout the winter, draining energy and fostering a sense of melancholy.

It’s more than winter blues; it can be really dark.

SAD symptoms may be:

 Persistent feelings of listlessness;


 Loss of interest in once-enjoyed activities;

 Low energy levels;

 Challenges related to excessive sleep;

 Cravings for carbohydrates, overeating, and weight gain;

 Difficulty concentrating;

 Feelings of hopelessness, worthlessness, or guilt;

 Suicidal thoughts.

The exact cause of SAD are elusive, though factors such as the circadian rhythm, vitamin D deficiency, serotonin and melatonin levels play contributory roles.

Treatment options are:

 Light therapy

 Vitamin D supplements
