Light Deprivation

There are days when the weather gets bad and the light doesn’t shine.  When this occurs, it is easy to crawl back in bed and go back to sleep.  On these days, it is natural to want to read, watch movies, and lay around.  In fact, sometimes they can be a nice break from your normal routine.  However, if you continue along this road for too long, you might become a victim of Seasonal Affective Disorder.


SAD is a type of depression and a common mental illness that many individuals suffer with during the fall and winter months.  During these periods, it can be more difficult to find happiness.  Why?  Overtime there are more and more gloomy days.  While at first the gloomy day can be a fun release, overtime it can be detrimental to your progress.

Lack Of Light

The lack of light on these gloomy days is a direct cause of SAD.  It can make people feel irritable, cranky, lazy, and even despondent.  And, when the symptoms are not addressed they will get worse.  Usually an individual will suffer with them until the sun begins to shine more frequently and they are not dealing with a light deprivation problem.
