I'm curious if anyone out there has a problem with SAD - Seasonal Affective Disorder. For those of you that might not be familiar with this, basically it's a minor form of depression that is brought on due to a lack of sunlight - something that your body needs and one theory is that the lack of sunlight disrupts the body's circadian rhythms causing you to produce more melatonin, which basically makes you want to sleep more and can bring on symptoms of depression. I'm not positive that I actually suffer from this, but one thing that I do know is that I have a hard time getting motivated during the winter months and it's usually during this time of the year that I try to take stock of my life and decide that I'm going completely in the wrong directions. I've talked to some folks at work and it seems that it's much more common than I initially thought. My Dad suffered from it too. He'd get really down in the dumps during the winter to the point where he almost quit talking to everyone in the family. Anyway, if anyone has any personal experience with this and has any advice, I'd appreciate it. About the only thing that I'm doing about it now is that during the winter, I don't wear sunglasses, which allows me to get a little more sunlight.
