I have been embracing winter in full force this year, even though it’s not usually a season that I’m friends with. When Quality Street and Baileys are acceptable breakfast items and Michael Buble comes out of hibernation, what’s not to love?
Seasonal Affective Disorder – shortened to SAD (what wanker came up with that?) – is essentially a form of depression, often accompanied by anxiety, that is triggered by the Autumn and Winter months. The changing of seasons affects us all in some shape or form, even if it’s just that bit harder to climb out of bed in the morning knowing that you’re probably going to have to defrost your car, however for SAD sufferers the effects can be severe and debilitating.
