Simple solution for the Canadian “winter depression”

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), also known as “winter depression” or “winter blues”, affects one in 10 people. I always believed that the brain neurotransmitters responsible for this are affected by weather conditions, but studies suggest that they are affected by latitude.

All Canadians know that Winter is harsh in Canada, but we can now fortunately prevent a Winter depression. Light therapy can be a quick and simple solution. Two thirds of people with the SAD condition, sitting in front of a light device or light box, for thirty minutes every morning really alleviates most of their symptoms. The good thing is that results can come quickly, usually four to seven days.

Watch Dr. Rhonda Low from CTV explaining this solution:

C’est devenu a la mode ca aussi en France depuis 1 an, meme si l’hiver n’est pas si dur qu’ici… Ca a fait un boom d’achat, mais je me demande si les gens l’utilisent regulièrement encore maintenant…
Honestly, je me vois pas plantée devant un truc comme ca 30min par jour, même si les résultats sont prouvés! autant lire ou faire autre chose qui remonte le moral…
Anyway, that’s my point of view of course :p
