As the vibrant hues of autumn give way to the winter chill, many of us eagerly anticipate the holiday season. However, for some, this time of the year can bring about a different set of emotions. Seasonal depression, often known as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), can cast a shadow on the joyous celebrations. At A New View Counseling and Psychological Services, we understand the unique challenges that accompany this season, and we're here to shed light on the importance of recognizing the signs and seeking professional support.
Spotting the Signs
Seasonal depression is more than just the winter blues; it's a distinct form of depression that tends to recur during specific seasons, typically fall and winter. It's crucial to be aware of potential signs such as persistent low energy, changes in sleep patterns, increased irritability, and a lingering sense of sadness. If you find yourself struggling to cope with these feelings as the days get shorter, you're not alone.
