“SAD” Seasonal Affective Disorder is a form of anxiety and depression that hits in winters
An individual often feels depressed during the winters due to a Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). It is a type of depression related to changes in seasons and begins and ends at about the same time every year. The symptoms of an individual start in the fall and continue during the chilly months forcing an individual to feel moody and low on energy.
SAD also becomes one of the reasons for depression in spring and early summers due to less sun exposure. A few of the signs and symptoms of SAD include losing interest in activities you once enjoyed, having sleep problems and experiencing carbohydrate cravings.
How to treat SAD:
The treatment for Seasonal Affective Disorder for winters may include light therapy, medications and psychotherapy. Also, embracing the low feeling can play a part. Doctors often recommend individual’s experiencing SAD get outside early in the morning to get more natural light and eat a well-balanced diet before exercising daily.
