It has almost been a year since I last posted on my blog. Our Artsy Fartsy Family had a truly busy year. I had my tonsils removed in October of last year and since then it has been crazy ride filled with holidays, birthdays, high school and middle school band events, and a high school graduation.
Along with the Fall season and holidays, I was hit hard with SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder). I was raised in Hawaii and having lived in the NW for almost 20 years you’d think I would have adjusted by now. Apparently living in the NW was hard on others we know this past year. Normal daily life was much more difficult than it should have been and for myself, a lot of it was due to feeling fatigue.
Looking back now, much of it could have been avoided had I prepared myself with exercise, Vitamin D, play dates for my little one, date nights for myself and my husband, coffee dates for myself and friends, and lots of activities. My goal this Fall and Winter is to be prepared to fend off and deal with SAD. Do you have issues with SAD? If so, what are things you do to fend off SAD?
