Sunshine & Your Mood - Talking All That Jaz
Have you ever heard of Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD which is the old term for Major Depressive Disorder with a seasonal pattern or MDD. It’s a real thing folks. According to an article I read, it’s a psychological condition that results in depression, usually caused by seasonal changes. It usually affects women, adolescents and young adults. I must admit, I’ve been spoiled my entire life growing up in beautiful California. Pretty amazing weather year round, but there is a huge misconception about the “Sunshine” state…it isn’t always sunny. In fact, it can get quite cold in the Bay Area which is where I live. I get a kick out of watching tourist walking around San Francisco in shorts and T-shirts in 40 something degree weather blanketed by Karl the fog, as it’s so affectionately named. Yes folks, there is so much fog in the bay that it’s been given a name. Remember this the next time you plan a visit.
