'It’s the fall season. How do you feel?
Maybe you love the change of colors on the leaves, the cooler weather, and the crisp feel of the air. Maybe fall is your favorite time of year.
But then again, maybe you feel it starting to come on—that touch of melancholy, the nostalgia for the warm, long days of summer, and the dread of the long, cold, harsh winter months.
The Cleveland Clinic notes that seasonal depression, or “seasonal affective disorder (SAD),” often starts in the fall (and then gets worse in the winter). Particularly if you live in the northern latitudes where the sun seems to take a permanent vacation in winter, you may already be feeling a little blue in anticipation of the oncoming gloominess.'
