For those of us living in the Anchorage area, winter means noticeably shorter days and longer, colder nights. For many people, this can mean onset of seasonal affective disorder (SAD). SAD is a type of depression that recurs seasonally, with its most severe symptoms occurring in the depth of winter. The disruption of circadian rhythms, as well as a drop in serotonin and melatonin levels, can lead to difficulty sleeping (or oversleeping), anxiety, fatigue, irritability, social withdrawal, hopelessness, and feelings of guilt or worthlessness.
