6 Tips for Beating Seasonal Affective Disorder

Seasonal Affective Disorder, Depression, Healthy Lifestyle, Essential Oils | March 4.2019

As winter drags on, we begin to wonder if the sun will shine, when it will shine, and wishing we could leave work before it gets dark...again. The gloomy gray skies and biting cold winds seep into our bones and make it difficult to feel that all's right with the world. The drudgery of long winters can leave many folks in a serious slump, much akin to mild depression. Researchers have labeled this class of malaise as seasonal affective disorder, or SAD. The idea of SAD dates back to 300 B.C. where documents on health and disease described how the seasons affected all living things and suggested retiring early and getting up with the sunrise during winter, while keeping your "desires and mental activity quiet and subdued" during winter.1 Today, an estimated 10 million Americans are diagnosed with SAD and an additional 10 to 20 percent may have mild SAD symptoms.2 So as we prepare for spring while getting through this last month of the long "winter blues", here's some tips to help boost your mood beyond the traditional treatments.[...]
