Fighting the winter blues


As the days get shorter and temperatures continue to drop, many of us begin to experience the symptoms of seasonal affective disorder — also known as the winter blues. 

It's a fairly common disorder that can have wide-ranging impacts on our lives. Psychologist Kelly Donahue, of Everyday Therapist in Frederick, describes symptoms to look out for such as over- or under-sleeping and weight gain in the winter months during this episode of Frederick Uncut, and what you can do to create positive thoughts and mindsets even on the most gloomy winter days.

This week, Donahue talks hosts Emma Kerr and Colin McGuire through the changes going on in our brains and explains why these symptoms pop up in the first place.
