SAD, or the Winter Blues, is officially recognised by Doctors and Psychiatrists as a medical condition that is thought to affect 2 million people in the UK and Ireland and over 12 Million people across Northern Europe but it can be prevented. The body does what nature does so instead of the alarming sound of your alarm on a dark, early winter morning, consider investing in a Body Clock / Light box which acts as a sunrise to wake you up gently. In your spare time, if it really is too dark, cold and wet, stay in next to a bright light and attack all of those jobs you put off in the summer because you were playing outside.
