As we move toward the fall and winter months, the amount of natural light available for our bodies to absorb is drastically reduced which can have a significantly negative effect on nearly 20% of the worlds population. Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD, occurs when our bodies are deprived of the full spectrum light they require to function properly. This happens largely in more Northern regions of the world where the seasonal change is much more notable. The symptoms associated with S.A.D. include disturbed sleep patterns, a lack of motivation, listlessness and overall depression. The will to perform simple tasks is depleted and even getting out of bed seems pointless for many. Seasonal Affective Disorder has an adverse effect on our bodies and psyche, disturbing Circadian rhythms and sending perfectly mentally healthy people into a lethargic and depressed state.
But there is something you can do to reverse the damaging effects of SAD, without having to resort to the use of medication. Since S.A.D. occurs upon the reduction of sunlight available for our bodies to absorb, doesn’t it just make sense to find a way to replace that source during the darker months?
