Tips for SAD

Do you suffer from SAD? 😥


Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that occurs during the same season each year, usually in the fall or winter.


Signs of the seasonal affective disorder can include:

☑️Lack of energy despite an increase in sleep

☑️Lack of interest in once enjoyable activities

☑️Feeling lethargic, sad, or hopeless

☑️Suicidal thoughts

☑️Altered appetite


For those who battle seasonal depression, this year could be really tough. The physical distancing due to COVID-19, mixed with the upcoming holidays and seasonal depression can create a bad recipe. That's why we created for you a list of ways to cope with "winter blues"


Tips for seasonal depression:

🔶Try to spend as much time outside during the day as you can. The reduction in light disrupts your circadian rhythm.

🔶Incorporate a light-therapy box into your daily routine.

🔶Consider using a sunlight alarm.

🔶Reach out to a therapist.

🔶Incorporate exercise into your daily routine

🔶Schedule virtual events and time with people (Physical distance doesn’t mean we have to be emotional or social distant)


Hopefully, those are the ingredients to make the holidays happy.
