Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) can have a significant impact on your life, but there are ways you can manage the disorder from day to day. It's important to follow doctors' advice regarding treatment such as medication and therapy. Herbal supplements, exercise, and massage may also help relieve some of the stress or chemical imbalances that are causing your symptoms. However, the disorder can still affect all aspects of your life, including your emotional and mental health. It's important to find ways to cope with these challenges, so seeking counseling, socializing, or even traveling may all be helpful.
