I feel a little depressed and have heard about some kind of winter depression. What is it? -Steve
There is a condition named SAD or Seasonal Affective Disorder. During the fall and winter seasons there is less sunlight, colder weather, and more isolation. This results in SAD.
It is estimated that 25 percent of people in North America could have some form of this depression. You can purchase lights that provide light therapy. Check online for the many types. Make sure you exercise, eat foods rich in omega-3s and vitamin B6, and schedule time with good friends.
