4 Articles: Seasonal Affective Disorder & Winter Blues
As a long-time resident of the DC Metro area, I have been a regular subscriber to Washingtonian Magazine. I can always depend on them to steer me to the best restaurants for the best prices and, for that matter, to the best of everything. I was delighted therefore to find four articles in the latest copy of Washingtonian that deal with a topic near and dear to my heart — seasonal affective disorder or Winter Blues, and its treatment.
I think the articles are very informative and practically useful, so I am providing a link to each of them below with a brief description of what each covers. I hope you find them useful and that it helps carry you through the next few months. Remember Shelley’s famous words: If winter’s here, can spring be far behind?
