Pumphrey: Enjoying the Nice & Sunny Weather For A Change

 

WITN NBC (Greenville, NC): Clinical therapists call that depressed winter doldrum experienced during the cold season seasonal affective disorder or SAD.

 

Clinical therapist Sean Pumphrey says, "The last couple of weeks with the lows coming in bringing in some difficult weather, no sunshine, people feel the effects."

 

Pumphrey says symptoms of the disorder include changes in mood, sleep, appetite and an overall lethargic feeling.

 

He says a possible solution to the groggy, depressed feeling this time of the year, can be as easy as stepping outside. "The sun is great for you as long as you don't get burned, you make sure you don't get too little sun but you want enough so it benefits you."
