Are you experiencing a subdued mood, a loss of appetite, a lack of energy, difficulty concentrating, sleepy or just generally feeling under the weather?

You could be experiencing seasonal affective disorder (SAD) a type of depression that’s related to changes in seasons.

The clocks going back may mean an extra hour in bed, but when the hours of daylight noticeably reduce during the autumn and winter months, people tend to increasingly stay inside and the effects of a lack of light cumulate.

This is often described as ‘Winter depression’ or ‘ Winter blues’ and can affect people in a number of ways. In the medical field, SAD lights are used to compensate for the effects of a lack of light. SAD light boxes with a light intensity of over 10,000 lux are designed to simulate daylight. This light can influence the human body and be used as a treatment or preventative measure.
