Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) [English] Permalink Public

Many people report feeling sadder in late autumn and winter, blaming this tendency on the shortening of daylight hours and colder temperatures. However, some people develop a more intense sadness known as seasonal affective disorder (SAD), which is a type of depression. SAD is characterized by symptoms of lethargy, decreased interest in and withdrawal from usual activities, oversleeping, and overeating. (English)
