Why Shorter Days & Less Sunlight Can Lead To Depression

The Mayo Clinic defines seasonal depression or Seasonal Affective Disorder (which affects around 1.6 billion people across the globe) as depression that’s linked to the change of seasons, usually fall and winter.

•According to research, the exact causes are unknown, but it’s believed the lack of sunlight can not only lead to a drop in mood-affecting brain chemicals, but also negatively impact the body’s biological clock. Someone with seasonal depression might feel a lack of energy, lost interest in activities and a feeling of depression most of the day.
