Do you have seasonal affective disorder? 6 ways to deal with it naturally

While many people are negatively affected by the reduction in daylight—making them feel gloomy—as much as 3% of the population has seasonal affective disorder.

SAD is more than just what people refer to as the “winter blues”. Those who have it find it difficult to function when it rears its head.
