2015 Healthy Family Tips

Is Winter Giving You the Blues?

During the winter months, as many as one in five Americans may suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder or "SAD." Also referred to as "winter depression," SAD is a condition linked to fewer daylight hours.

Symptoms can include headaches, excessive sleeping, overeating, lack of interest in regular activities, insomnia, sadness and general irritability. These symptoms generally disappear with the return of longer daylight hours. Engaging with your church for worship, prayer and fellowship is a helpful remedy.
