SEASONAL AFFECTIVE DISORDER

SEASONAL AFFECTIVE DISORDER (SAD) TREATMENT

 SEASONAL AFFECTIVE DISORDER (SAD) TREATMENT
You start to feel depressed in November and don’t feel better until the spring comes.

Light and temperature play an important role in SAD. Daylight promotes the brain to release chemical that creates feelings of energy.

  • Try a full – spectrum fluorescent light, which resembles sunlight.
  • Go out as much as possible in the early morning.
  • Keep the blinds up in your house or office during the daylight hours.
  • Sit near windows.
  • If the weather is very cloudy, turn on all the lights.
  • Don’t let depression get the better of you. Visit friends, go to the theatre, and don’t let yourself get isolated.
  • Take your holiday in the winter and go to a sunnier clime.
