Beat the Winter Blues | Yoga NOW Show

“There is light on the horizon.” That common phrase holds special meaning for many people affected by the “winter blues”. That’s because light or the lack of it is a key ingredient in their state of mind – that’s a big deal!

If you’re fortunate not to be impacted by this mild form of depression then you likely know someone who is. However, many people don’t talk about this issue perhaps because they feel it’s personal, or they’re ashamed, and so on. It’s estimated that 15% of the population experiences some degree of feeling depressed, sad, low on energy, or un-motivated for even the most routine activities.

Sunlight is a necessary ingredient for the body to produce various chemicals that affect our brain and create a feeling of well-being. If the light is decreased significantly, other brain chemicals take-over and the opposite feeling results – a general sense of sadness or that “something is not right”.

Fortunately, several decades ago researchers began investigating this issue and made important strides in understanding the symptoms, causes, and developed remedies or treatments. Of course, they had to give it a name. In their cleverness, they came up with Seasonal Affective Disorder – S.A.D.

In this episode, our host Jane Lanza goes solo and talks with you about the winter blues and gives you some practical advice on how you can get back to your usual sunny disposition.
