Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) 


Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that has a seasonal recurring pattern; as the hours of sunlight diminish the occurrence of SAD increases. Oftentimes lifestyle changes are helpful to improve symptoms and lift your mood. You might try going outside more often, getting plenty of sunlight, exercising, avoiding drugs and alcohol, getting plenty of sleep, and practicing relaxation exercises. However, If symptoms such as major changes in sleep patterns; loss of or significantly increased appetite; loss of interest in normally pleasurable activities; withdrawing from social contact are occurring you should contact your health care team to discuss treatment options.
