Seasonal Sadness? ("Holiday Blues")
Show Notes

Whether it's increased sadness around the holidays, or a dip in your mood from the colder months that lack sunshine, we have all experienced seasonal depression. We may more commonly understand it as winter or holidays blues, and it is more clinically known as Seasonal Affective Disorder if it becomes a routine occurrence. Not only does it impact mood and performance, it plays on the Vitamin D deficiency many of us experience, as well as the consistent drive to be productive and positive. This episode is for you if you feel guilt for the days you have inactivity, and especially if post-pandemic you are still establishing your new winter or holiday norm.
