January – it’s not exactly a popular month. Christmas is long gone and, for many of us, all we’re left with as a reminder of the festivities is the ‘holiday weight’ and a not so healthy looking bank balance! And things don’t seem to get any better as the month continues. Statistics show that 12th January is the date most people are likely to give up on their New Year’s resolutions, and January is the most common month for people to file for divorce. Combine this with the seemingly endless cold weather and dark nights, and it’s natural to feel a little below par during January.
However, if you find the low feelings linger for some time, and seem to return on a seasonal basis, you could be suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). SAD is a form of depression caused by the lack of sunlight during the winter months. It’s understood that this lack of sunlight affects part of the brain called the hypothalamus, which in some cases can lead to an increase in melatonin levels, a decrease in serotonin and a disruption to our circadian rhythm.
If you’re experiencing a combination of any of the symptoms above and it’s having a significant impact on your day-to-day activities, book an appointment at YourGP and we’ll find a treatment that’s right for you.
There’s no need to delay – we have short-notice, same-day appointments available and we’re open six days a week, with extended hours Monday to Friday.
So don’t let SAD ruin the start of a new year. We’re here to help you embrace all that 2019 has to offer with a healthier frame of mind.
I just want to thank you for listening to me. When you are visiting the UK it can be worrying when you are unwell. You put me at ease and gave me the medical attention I needed.
