Mental Health Tips for Season Affective Disorder

Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant - Robert Louis Stevenson

What is SAD?

Seasonal Affective Disorder is also known as “Winter Depression” because symptoms of SAD tend to be more severe in the winter months, but SAD symptoms can also appear in the summer months for some people.

Symptoms of SAD:

  • Feeling tired more than usual
  • Low engery
  • Loss of interest in activities
  • Craving carbohydrates and overeating
  • May experience weight gain “Winter weight”
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Depressive symptoms

Coping with SAD:

Use light therapy—there is a special lamp called a light box which is used to simulate exposure to the sun. This light is safe and does not have UVA or UVB rays. You can find these light boxes in the counselor center!

Sleep—Remember, sleep is extremely important to your mental health. In the darker months, it is especially important to pay attention to your sleep schedule and get enough sleep.

Regular exercise—getting regular exercise will help create natural feel-good neurotransmitters (endorphins) which can help you feel better. Going for a simple walk, or a 10 minute yoga stretch can help increase endorphins.
