Seasonal Affective Disorder

As many as 11 million Americans experience seasonal affective disorder (SAD), reports the U.S. National Institute for Mental Health.

Because seasonal affective disorder is a form of depression, those who may have it will exhibit the symptoms of depression: moodiness (feeling depressed or sad), reduced interest in daily—and especially social—activities, fatigue, lack of energy, difficulty concentrating, weight gain, sleepiness, and irritability. Those with SAD may have either major depression symptoms or minor depression symptoms.

Light therapy is a way to treat seasonal affective disorder. You sit or work near a device called a light therapy box. The light therapy box gives off bright light that mimics natural outdoor light.

See lampsusa.com for an example of a light therapy box.

Today, take a few minutes to break out of the winter doldrums and enjoy watching the movie Simple Truths of Life. The words, which are a collection of life's lessons presented in an unforgettable way, will add joy to your day as well as the beautiful photography and music.

"When you first wake and your mind begins to stir, immediately think of what you are going to do for You today that will make you smile."

Happiness Always, Susan
