8 Steps to turn SAD-ly to BRIGHT-ly – Seasonal Affective Disorder

Depression- Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)

8 Steps to turn SAD-ly to BRIGHT-ly.

Need help along the way? is here for you now to see you through.

Can’t take it anymore; cold dreary winter days morphing into one another?  Staying in, even in bed, giving in to feeling blue, withdrawing from all that makes you happy, and even gaining weight?

“You could be one of 4 to 6 percent of people in the United States estimated to have seasonal affective disorder, or SAD”. (Dr. Angelos Halaris, MD, professor of psychiatry and medical director of adult psychiatry at the Loyola University Medical Center in Chicago)


What to do? (Answer, plenty)


Brighten up your day with lights, lots of lights.  Fill your home, office, life with bright, bright lights

Run to a boat show, gardening show, outdoor living show.  Imagine yourself living in that world

Inhale fragrances at the mall (where every department store greets you with free fragrances).  Make a frivolous purchase that makes you smile- maybe a pair of rainbow-colored 5-toe socks.

Get outdoors into any sun, no matter how sparse.  Indoors, face the least bit of sun that you can find, especially morning, and throughout the day.  Face sunrises and sunsets.

Hear music, loud and joyful.

Take silly photos and post them, inviting others in return. Giggles!

Liven up yourself and your pets with a new toy and play along with them.

YouTube a video of you and your pets.
