What is SAD? is it how sad you will be? Well, yes it is really.

SAD - stands for Seasonal Affective Disorder - a disorder that's most common in winter when the days are short and we're exposed to less light.

Symptoms of SAD are: depression, lethargy, fatigue, cravings for junk food, headaches, sleep problems and being irritable. Symptoms start in Autumn, then reach their peak during the winter months. By spring most of us start to come right. Interestingly up to 80% of those who suffer from SAD are female and usually it starts when you reach your 30's - although it's unclear why.
