the Winter Blahs... Naturally
lack of light during the short days of our dark winters affects
us all, particularly those of us who live in the northern hemisphere.
Winter Blahs are technically known as SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder).
SAD describes pretty acurately what it's like to experience how
the lack of light affects us.
most common symptoms that people with SAD experience are:
ranging from mild to severe
Sleeping problems such as a greatly increased desire for
ten or more hours of sleep or disturbed sleep patterns like insomnia
for carbohydrates and sugar, such as cookies, potato chips,
cakes, popcorn, rice, cereals, beer and/or wine
for more sleep
gain (must be all those carbs and sugar!)
immunity to illness, especially colds and flu at any time
Winter Blahs aren't relegated to only those who live in Northern
locales. People who live in sun-infested states such Florida, California,
Nevada also suffer from SAD. In their case, it's a year-long malady,
caused by the same thing: lack of sunlight. People in those areas
tend to stay indoors to avoid the heat or extreme sun and wear sunglasses
while outside, creating the sunless effect of winter all year long.
