13 of 14

You have winter SAD in the summer

If your summer has been particularly gloomy or rainy—or so hot that you’ve closed all of the curtains and closeted yourself in a darkened air-conditioned cocoon—that could be making you depressed, especially if you’re prone to winter-onset SAD, according to Dr. Rosenthal, the SAD researcher who is currently Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Georgetown Medical School.

Summer solution: Open the blinds, get light therapy, and talk to your doctor about other ways to combat the winter SAD symptoms, which can range from carb cravings to severe lethargy.
