TIP OF THE DAY (www.ehow.com)
How to avoid SAD (seasonal affective disorder)

Wintertime is the time of year when more depression occurs. Here are some simple tips to avoid this common seasonal blues.

Step 1
Drive in the sun. On cold, but sunny days - roll down windows or open the sunroof (this is best option).

Step 2
Sit by windows. When you go out to eat, ask to be seated by the windows. Keep in mind that windows do have UV protection, so you are not getting a lot of sun. But you are at least getting natural light therapy.

Step 3
Go outside. Even if it’s cold, a1/2 hour a day outside can make a world of difference. Try walking to your closet store (rather than driving to it), or walk with a friend (hot coffee in hand). This is the BEST way to ward off SAD.

Step 4
If SAD does happen. Look for support. Research online and specifically search for others that are going through it as well. Having this type of support will make a world of difference.

Step 5
Schedule a mid-winter holiday. There are lots of places you can go that are not expensive during the winter.

Step 6
Readjust your attitude. There are hobbies you can take up (baking, reading, writing, etc) that will keep you going during the SAD-infested season.
