I Lack of sunlight in winter

Others blame it on the

seasons can cause a mental con

Seasonal Affective Disorder,
or SAD, is a form of depression
that is caused by the lack of sun
light in the fall and winter
months, said Robert Portnoy, a
clinical psychologist and head
of Counseling and
Psychological Services at the
University Health Center.
Normally people wake up
with the sun, Portnoy said. But
in the winter, it’s dark when
many people wake up and fall
asleep, which can cause SAD, he
Some symptoms of SAD
include: fatigue, eating more,
weight gain, loss of energy,
socializing less and difficulty
coping with problems.

One of the major problems
for Caulfield right now, she said,
is that it’s hard for her to get
motivated to go to class.
“All I want to do during the
day is just sit and sleep,” she

These two women are not
alone, however. According to
research, Portnoy said, women
are affected by SAD three to four
more times than men.
But women don't outweigh
men in other types of depres

“I don't know anyone who
has proposed some rationale as
to why this affects women
more,” Portnoy said.
“This is no reason to assume
that women are more depressed

within the population.
In fact, Portnoy said, Lincoln
and Omaha are in an area where
the prevalence of SAD affects 8
percent of the population.
But Portnoy said there was
an effective way to combat the
symptoms of SAD: just sit in
front of a light box.
Using a 10,000 lumens light
box and sitting about 18 inches
away for 30 minutes is sufficient
for most people to treat SAD,
"All the research seems to
suggest that the most effective
treatment is photo therapy, or
high intensity light," Portnoy
Even though symptoms of
SAD may seem like they could
be caused by other things,
Portnoy said it was worth it to
get checked out if the problems
persist from year to year.
“The holidays can be diffi

said. “They may be suffering

There is no reason that any
