Do you find yourself feeling down during the fall and winter months? Does the term “winter blues” seem to be a tangible experience for you? If so, you may be experiencing seasonal depression. What? Seasonal depression? Yes! This diagnosable medical condition occurs in individuals who experience depression in the darker months of the year. Scientifically, many people experience feelings of sadness and general depression in fall and winter when they are exposed to less sunlight. If you typically make it through the Thanksgiving holiday but begin to feel awful by Christmas, you may be experiencing seasonal depression.
