How Can An Individual Cope with Seasonal Affective Disorder?

While seasonal affective disorder can take place only once in a year, there are things that you can do to reduce your chances of suffering from the condition. Here are some suggestions on how you can wipe the blues away.

  1. Whether it’s acting on a dramatic guild or going outdoors in the mountaineering club, finding an outlet can be a good way of eliminating your depression and seasonal affective disorder.
  2. Having a regular exercise regimen can also be an effective way of reducing the likelihood of seasonal affective disorder. This will help keep your body active and energetic. Seasonal affective disorder can be caused by low level of energy.
  3. Expanding your circle of friends can also help in reducing the onset of seasonal affective disorder. Having more friends gives you an opportunity to have an outlet for sharing problems and sentiments.
