Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) – a condition known to many of us during winter months. Cold weather, gloomy days, short hours of daylight, little to no sun – no wonder we feel more depressed. But, according to NaturalNews, who published a report on Jan. 5, we tend to blame SAD too often and as a result fail to address the real causes of our misery.

How do you feel going through your bank statement with all those credit card charges? Did you deal with Christmas family gatherings this year? Was it all pleasure and relaxation, or maybe encounter with one or few family members brought the opposite feelings? Can you boast about keeping to a healthy diet during holidays? In addition to that, it is already a proven fact that winter months successfully turn us into unsociable coach potatoes.

Now you can see that, besides seasonal affective disorder, there are many more things that can bring us down during winter. It can be really helpful to recognize and tackle them, since too many people consider winter depression as a normal condition during this time of the year.

Good thing is that more and more people are becoming aware of the dangers of anti-depressants and turning to the solutions that Mother Nature so generously offers us. For example, oilypedia, a website devoted to supplemental, essential and cooking oils’ health benefits and uses, can introduce you to the wide variety of natural remedies for depression. Krill oil, flaxseed oil, basil essential oil, jasmine essential oil – just to name a few - they are a wonderful, natural, chemical-free way to fight depression.
