What is SAD, and how do we treat it?
Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that usually appears in the fall and winter when there are less natural light and shorter days. Symptoms include feeling sad, sleepy, tired and disinterested in activities you used to enjoy.
Common treatments for SAD include sitting next to a special therapy light such as the BIOS Living Light, for at least thirty minutes per day. Regular exercise, staying connected to others, counselling and medication prescribed by a doctor might also help.
