Blue light to chase away the blues

As the hours change and the nights draw in, physical and biochemical changes take place in everyone: our energy levels decrease and we become less active. For some the reduced sunshine can have more serious effects such as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), which unfortunately is quite prevalent in people with ADHD.

So make sure you get outside as much as you can, take a walk at lunch time and search your messy, untidied cupboards for your SAD light, if you have one (mine is an older version of this one, that makes everything look yellow but works well).

It’s time to accept, that as the nights close in, its alright to do a little less each day and to enjoy feeling warm and cosy at home.
