Introduction
Seasonal depression affects many of us in very negative ways. Although we may not be able to avoid SAD, as it has been dubbed by mental illness professionals, there are steps that can be taken to ease the pain.
Instructions
Difficulty: Easy
Steps
1
Step One
The first and most important step that can be taken in ease the pain of seasonal depression is to talk to someone. It is not necessary that this person be a professional, although this may be beneficial, a family member or friend can also provide the support that you need during this time. The seclusion that the cold sometimes causes can do terrible things to the spirit, therefore donít allow the dreary weather to keep you from the outside world.
2
Step Two
Invest in the herbal supplement St. Johnís Wort. St. Johnís Wort can be purchased over the counter and is used by many to ease the symptoms of depression.
3
Step Three
Give the tanning bed a visit, the lack of sunlight in the wintertime is one of the primary causes of seasonal depression, and although a tanning bed can not replace natural sunlight it may just be the next thing. Although in any other situation I would discourage you from visiting a tanning bed, when the winter blues hit hard, the benefits may outweigh the disadvantages.

Step Four
Watch a funny movie, laughter will nearly always brighten your mood, not to mention that it has been said that laughing burns about 50 calories in 15 minutes. When all else fails laughter really is the best medicine.
