Is there a mental illness known as seasonal depression?
Doctors confirm that there is indeed a condition called "seasonal depression", a psychological condition that affects a person when the
weather changes, and is usually associated with the entry of autumn and winter, when exposure to sunlight decreases, and the hours of the day decrease in favor of the hours of night.
Some people feel in this period every year in a state of laziness and sadness and a loss of desire to do any activities, even the usual ones, and the desire to cry and introversion increases, in addition to an increase in weight due to the intense desire to eat sugars to overcome the state of depression.
Is it necessary to visit a doctor?
If this condition lasts for two days and then disappears, there is no need to worry, as it is a normal and common thing, but if it continues for months or the desire to withdraw and stay away from those
around you increases noticeably, you should consult a doctor, although in this case doctors do not prefer to resort to depression
medications, Because the matter is frequent, they advise treatment through meditation, yoga and even traditional exercises, and they also urge exposure to air and the sun daily, even inside the house, and not to surrender to isolation.
