What is SAD? The days are short and sunlight is scarce. SAD is caused by the long dark days of Autumn & Winter when there is very little sunshine, and some people can’t cope with six-hour days, some sunlight or no sunlight. mf758In winter the days are dark, gray and lead some people to suffer from this debilitating winter “depression”.

When one looks out the window during winter the trees are sleeping, and hardly a soul is out walking or having fun. Outside everything is dead and people are hurrying inside.

When one looks out the window and it’s raining, snowing, sunny, that’s fine. It’s the gray dead days that kills the mind and brings on the “depression”.DSC02722

People in the Southern Hemisphere do not suffer from SAD. They don’t know how lucky they are.

Is there a cure for SAD? Yes, move south!
