What is Seasonal Affective Disorder? (SAD)

October 30th, 2015 | Health, Lifestyle

Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that comes and goes in a seasonal pattern. SAD is sometimes known as ‘winter depression’ because the symptoms are more apparent and tend to be more severe during the winter. As Winter draws closer and the days get shorter, it is important to be aware of the SAD symptoms and ways one can treat this disorder.

Symptoms can include:

  • A persistent low mood
  • A loss of pleasure or interest in normal everyday activities
  • Irritability
  • Feelings of despair, guilt and worthlessness
  • Feeling lethargic (lacking in energy) and sleepy during the day
  • Sleeping for longer than normal and finding it hard to get up in the morning
  • Craving carbohydrates and gaining weight

If you recognise these symptoms in yourself or someone you know, please click here and will be happy to advise further.
