Are you SAD

Feb 15, 2013 by

If you are suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder (depression and lethargy during the winter months) DO NOT TAKE ANTIDEPRESSANTS.  Why? Because there are other things you can do to cope with these symptoms, such as:

  • Spend more time outdoors, especially on sunny days.
  • Exercise to boost your energy levels.
  • Don’t oversleep.  Get on a sleep schedule that allows you to be awake as much as possible during the sunlight hours.
  • Plan vacations to bright, sunny climates in winter.
  • Brighten your home by adding lamps and lighting fixtures and open all window coverings during the day.
