With all this extreme weather, it’s no wonder that some are feeling a little blue. But even mild winters can cause a legitimate condition known as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), a.k.a. the Wintertime Blues.
In fact, as many as 20 percent of Americans are affected by SAD each winter, which is why I’m sharing “8 Strategies to Beat the Wintertime Blues” over at Keeper of the Home today.
Are you feeling SAD?
Seasonal Affective Disorder is most often characterized by moodiness, depression, cravings for simple carbohydrates, weight gain, fatigue and melancholy.
Decreased sunlight during the winter months is the main reason why people develop SAD. So for those who aren’t getting a daily dose of sunshine, SAD is often the reason for those oh-so-tiresome wintertime blues and blahs.
But rather than giving in to the blues, the good news is You Can Beat It! For the vast majority of those experiencing SAD, following the simple steps I’m sharing over at Keeper of the Home can truly help you to shake the blues, while you eagerly look forward to spring!
