Darker & Shorter Days: How Are You Coping?
As the seasons change, we see less sun and the days feel shorter. It is during these times that we tend to see an increased level of seasonal affective disorder (SAD) which is a type of depression that comes and goes in a seasonal pattern.
SAD is often referred to as “winter depression” because the symptoms such as a persistent low mood, higher levels of irritability and difficulty concentrating, are usually more apparent and more severe during the winter.
It is important that during these times we actively expose ourselves to things that can help to lift our mood, so please use this post to share words of encouragement that could help other readers of this forum.
