Do I have S.A.D?

Every Year, in the dark period of autumn, winter and early spring, millions of people start feeling tired and listless. These people may well be affected by the so-called WINTERBLUES, or; as doctors call it, sub-syndronormal SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder). The problems are usually caused by a lack of light. Research has shown that 60% of the population recognised at least one of the symptoms. Amazingly, 15% of us have all the symptoms of Winterblues.

Winterblues affects different people in different ways. Some of the symptoms include:

feeling tired
having less energy
needing more sleep
feeling listless and gloomy
concentration problems
craving for carbohydrates
gaining weight
low spirits
