Air Date: 01/24/2018
Show Highlights and Takeaways:
- Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a form of seasonal depression that has symptoms like fatigue, moodiness, carb cravings, achiness, anxiety, brain fog, lack of motivation and sadness.
- SAD affects women more than men and begins in fall or winter and usually lets up by spring or summer.
- If you’re really struggling to make it through the days right now, please go see your doctor or make an appointment with a therapist. I don’t want you to suffer needlessly and there’s so much help available out there – you just need to reach out.
- If you have underlying issues going on, seasonal changes and stressors will cause you to suffer and struggle more than most, so view this as an opportunity to learn more about your baseline mental, emotional, spiritual and physical health.
- Allow winter to show you the shadow side of your health – and be thankful for the messages you get about what needs more attention, about what’s going to need spring cleaning in a couple of months.
