No Need to Feel SAD

Sometimes when winter kicks in, so do the winter blues.

Shorter days, less sunlight, and colder temperatures can affect our daily moods and the nerve centers in our brain. This can result in a variety of side effects that leave us feeling lethargic, withdrawn, and out of sorts.

One of the most effective, non-medicinal remedies for SAD is light therapy. Scientists and medical professionals believe that increased daily exposure to high-intensity light helps alleviate seasonal depression and its side effects.
