Is it S.A.D.D. ?

December 21st, 2010 by Lee Yahnke

Gray skies. Short Days.

It's so S.A.D.D.

Or is it?

Winter Solstice, December 21st, the shortest day of the year, the longest darkness of the year.  For months we've come home in the dark.  Our energy is low and we just want to curl up in a fleece blanket and watch TV.


But, wait ...  Winter Solstice means on the 22nd of December, daylight will begin to gain on the darkness.


Each of us gets closer to home before the shadows stretch and darkness intrudes on our lives.  Day by day, hour by hour, our outlook hopefully brightens with each day.  I know mine will.

Good-bye, S.A.D.D.
(Seasonal Affective Disorder Depression )

Mayo Clinic has an excellent definition.
