What is SAD?

Seasonal Affective Disorder is a condition that exhibits similar symptoms to depression. These symptoms can include social withdrawal, fatigue, and mood swings. These symptoms typically begin in fall and winter and ease coming into spring when days get longer and brighter. Insufficient exposure to sunlight has been associated with low levels of melatonin and serotonin, weight gain, and sleep disturbance.

The full extent of people suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder is difficult to determine. Locations with colder and darker winters are more likely to hold larger numbers of SAD cases. In Ireland, we tend to laugh off the bad weather, but it can affect or cause damage to some people's mental health and motivation. Symptoms are similar to those of depression and cause a loss of energy, sociability, and productivity.
