Now that Daylight Saving Time has turned the clocks back an hour, there are ways to cope with the sadness that can come from the extra hour of darkness during the day. Around six percent of people experience a winter depression known as seasonal affective disorder. Symptoms start around early fall and run through winter months, and include fatigue, hopelessness and social withdrawal. Doctors say it's important to keep routines, and also recommend going for a walk during the day to enjoy as much daylight as possible. Also make sure that your windows are letting in as much sunlight as possible, and exercise regularly. Seasonal affective disorder can also be treated with medication if symptoms are severe.
