How to beat the Winter Blues

Tips from the expert

Have you got the Winter Blues AKA Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)?  The psychiatrist who discovered it might be able to help.

Psychiatrist Dr. Norman Rosenthal first described SAD, that winter feeling of listlessness and stress; having problems with sleeping, eating and so on.  His infographic explains what SAD is, how it affects people and has some (very) basic tips on countering it.

Rosenthal has also done a Q&A on the subject.  It’s well worth reading, especially since it goes into more detail than the infographic.

    I don’t think I ever pay much attention to SAD. I’m the kinda person who always look on the bright side ^.^ When one of my bosses bought the lamp that is suppose to imitate the sun – shines when he wakes up, claiming he’s got the SAD, I couldn’t really understand. well, I think his problem is not the sun, it’s because he broke up with his gal. Go figures eh!

    If it wasn’t for the cold dark winter nights, you wouldn’t appreciate the long hot summer evenings !!
