Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) affects a lot of people, usually in the winter. There are a handful of tips and tricks to help manage this form of depression. An example is to increase Vitamin D intake. The best and cheapest form of Vitamin D is sunlight.
To start my day off right, I try to get outside for at least 10 minutes everyday. This allows me to get fresh air and sunlight, which are both natural mood boosters. However, it’s a lot harder to do in the wintertime, especially when the weather is cold and dark.
