The “winter blues” aren’t just in your head.
Seasonal Affective Disorder is a type of depression that’s related to seasonal changes — beginning in the fall and continuing through the winter months, draining your energy and causing you to experience mood swings.
Have you experienced any of these this winter?
- Feeling depressed most of the day, nearly every day
- Losing interest in activities you once enjoyed
- Low energy, sluggishness
- Difficulty sleeping, restlessness
- Experiencing changes in your appetite or weight
- Difficulty concentrating
- Feeling hopeless, worthless or guilty
- Having frequent thoughts of death or suicide
These symptoms are indicative of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Take steps to protect your mind and overall well-being throughout the year, and start this winter! Treatment may include light therapy, medications and psychotherapy. There are no true “cures” for this common problem, but studies show that CBD actually may help reduce the symptoms.
With its abilities to treat inflammation and anxiety, cannabidiol (or CBD) offers some relief from this depressive illness by controlling anxiety, low energy, and appetite changes. Cannabidiol also helps to fight fatigue by helping to normalize your sleeping patterns.
Remember, always verify the source of the product you purchase and make sure that you only buy from reputable sellers, like Brookside Holistic Solutions. Also, check in with your doctor before starting CBD, especially if you take any anti-depressant medications.
