It’s that time of year again when we experience less daylight, yet have to keep pace with the same, if not more work. If your lows are lower or you experience Seasonal Affective Disorder (renamed Depressive Disorder with Seasonal Pattern), then you’re not alone. While getting less sunshine certainly disrupts our rhythms and moods, the holidays can add another layer of stress and perhaps, grief.
SAD symptoms are the same as in regular depression and can include anxiety, loss of interest in enjoyable activities and sex, abnormal menstruation, suicidal thoughts, withdrawal, reduced energy, and a depressed mood for most of the day that may accompany feelings of emptiness, worthlessness, guilt and sadness. Many patterns are disrupted – one may eat too much or too little and gain or lose weight, move more slowly or be restless, and sleep more or sleep less, depending on the type of SAD you experience.
In this short video, we share herbal medicine and practices that will support you through this season. Be sure to share this video with your loved ones who need it, so they don’t feel so alone.
