You may have heard the term Seasonal Affective Disorder or even have it yourself. But if you’re unsure what it exactly means, here are two definitions…

How the Mayo Clinic defines Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD): a type of depression that’s related to changes in seasons. SAD begins and ends at about the same times every year. If you’re like most people with SAD, your symptoms start in the fall and continue into the winter months, sapping your energy and making you feel moody.

How Kim defines SAD:  In the winter months when you don’t want to leave bed and you only want Mac and Cheese. But you know the worst thing for you is to stay in bed and eat pasta.. So starts the spiral of shame and SAD.

What we tackle on the podcast.

Psychology Today estimates 10 million Americans suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder and Kim is one of them. So, we invited psychologist Dr. Amanda Seavey of Clarity Psychology on the Holderness Family podcast to discuss the symptoms and solutions to beating the blues this winter. Even if you don’t think you have SAD, we suggest you give it a listen to help recognize if a loved one suffers from it. As you’ll hear from Penn, his understanding of SAD is just as important as Kim understanding it.

One of the solutions discussed on the show is the use of therapy lamps. Kim uses one, but with Dr. Amanda’s help, you can learn the correct way to use this technique. After you listen to the podcast, check out this portal lamp, this full-sized lamp, and this handy-sized lamp.

As always, we love to hear from you. Join our private Facebook podcast group and share your input and stories.
