Providing support for those for whom winter is a time of low energy and low moods

Many people are influenced by the changing seasons – often feeling energetic and a sense of happiness when the sun is shining and a desire to snuggle up on the sofa and eat more when the days are colder and shorter. If winter brings low energy levels, difficulty getting up and low mood, it is worth looking into ways to manage S.A.D. and Winter Blues. For some, you may also need to seek medical advice from your GP as S.A.D. is a recognised mental health disorder - if in doubt, it's worth checking with your GP.
