Winter is one of the most awaited seasons that many people look forward to for its festive gatherings, joyous moments, and freezing temperatures. On the other hand, it is also the time of the year that some of us experience dark and melancholic episodes, also known as Winter Blues or Seasonal Affective Disorder.

What is Seasonal Affective Disorder (S.A.D.)

Seasonal Affective Disorder, sometimes called Winter Blues, is a shift in mood that occurs with the changing of the seasons. This phenomenon is caused by the change of weather from warm to cold and shorter days.

During the winter season, many people spend time inside their homes feeling lethargic. The absence of sunlight and warmth leads to people feeling sad or down.

Aside from emotions, Winter Blues may manifest in many ways, but the common symptoms are:

  • Being Anxious
  • Oversleeping
  • Weight Gain
  • Craving for Starchy Food
  • Social Withdrawal or Hibernation
