With the dark nights having been a regular feature for some time now, and the days being cold – and often wet – it is quite natural to feel like hibernating through late autumn and winter, in fact we are adapted to decrease our activity levels during this time. However, our modern culture often doesn’t allow us to do this, which over time may lead to stress, anxiety, tiredness and depression. Sometimes this can go beyond feeling a little “blue” or slightly more “down” during these months, as we approach the end of the year.
Many people are faced with Seasonal Affective Disorder – or SAD – a common type of depression, which although can occur any time of year, is often more apparent during the winter months.
