As the days become shorter and winter approaches, many may find themselves feeling more lethargic, low, or out of sync. This isn’t just ‘winter blues.’ Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a real form of depression linked to seasonal changes, affecting countless individuals every year.

🍂 Key symptoms include:

  • Persistent low mood and irritability
  • Loss of interest in everyday activities
  • Fatigue and desire to sleep more than usual
  • Craving carbohydrates and gaining weight

If you, or someone you know, are grappling with these feelings, remember:

✨ There’s no shame in seeking help. ✨ Light therapy, counselling, and lifestyle changes can make a world of difference. ✨ You’re not alone, and support is available.

For those in the helping professions, let’s be proactive in recognizing, addressing, and offering guidance on this prevalent condition.
