Many people in the Northern Hemisphere are affected by wintertime depression which may have something to do with the amount of available sunlight during these short days and long nights. Some people experience a recognized wintertime mood issue called SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) which appears to be more common than previously thought. In some people it can be mild, but in others, quite severe. In some people, SAD may require medical attention, and even the use of lamps with certain wave lengths of light which can help the depressive feelings become less severe.
