I did a little reading up on seasonal affective disorder the other day and found out that more of us suffer from some form of it than we might think. Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is mainly caused by lack of sunlight exposure, and the worst months for this are (yeah you guessed it) December, January, and February...yeah, we're right in SAD season right now.

If you're feeling unmotivated, feeling as though you need to sleep 12 hours a day, craving carbohydrates and sweets all the time, lack drive for your day, it's quite possible your suffering from SAD... and you know what, you're far from alone in it...

So go ahead, get some light therapy, take a walk for 20 minutes outside even though it is crazy cold still, it'll help. My fiance Dana has this sunny=happy yay! policy and I think I could get used to that.

as soon as it warms up, even just a little, i will go outside for 20 minutes with you...but only when it warms up. until then, light therapy happens when i sit in front of a window.
