Seasonal Affective Disorder affects around 1 in 20 people in the UK and can really impact day to day life. It is a type of depression that is triggered by seasons throughout the year, affecting different people in different ways.
It is important to let people around you know how you are feeling so they are aware of SAD and the way it can affect your mood.
Other things that can help are:
Natural sunlight indoors and out!
Exercise - Even if you don't feel like going out, there are so many online options - yoga is great for depression.
Healthy diet - So many foods are proven to make you feel better especially fruit and veg.
Bring the outside in with plants and flowers, just that little burst of colour or smell can help to lift your mood.
Massage is a great way of improving circulation, relieving tension and knots, boosting your immune system and making you feel more relaxed.
