And then daylight seems to sneak away early and nights are longer. Sun doesn’t shine as long as it does during warmer days. Seems like we wake up and it’s dark, we leave work heading for home and it’s dark. Everyone is hiding inside trying to keep warm. And the streets are bare. Trees lost their leaves and they look alone. The sky looks cold and gloomy. The winds are blowing strong. Winter seems to take life away. Also known as winter depression, winter blues. The hibernation effect takes it’s toll on us, take away the energy we have during the warmer seasons. This is better known as (SAD) Seasonal affective disorder.
