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.

SAD is characterized by symptoms of lethargy, decreased interest in and withdrawal from usual activities, oversleeping, and overeating. (English)
