Don’t Feel S.A.D.

So the summer has come and is about gone as we approach Labor Day this coming week. Kids are heading back to school, beaches will be closing soon around the shore area and allergies will be wreaking havoc on old and suffers alike. Fall, for me, is a beautiful time of year but the changes that take place can cause some people to feel S.A.D. – Seasonal Affective Disorder – a form of depression caused by the change of seasons. For most, it occurs in the winter month’s when they are exposed to less sunlight and are more sedentary, for others, it can start very early in the fall. Regardless of when you may experience S.A.D., you can count on exercise to help alleviate some of, if not most of the symptoms associated with this seasonal depression. Strength training, along with outdoor activities such as cycling, hiking, running, walking, yard work, etc. will enable you to benefit even greater with (vitamin D3), fresh air and a sense of accomplishment.
