NASHVILLE, Tenn.-- Do you find yourself feeling down during the fall and winter months? You might be suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder. Though usually referred to as the winter blues, the Mayo Clinic says we shouldn't just "brush it off."

Treatments which include light therapy (phototherapy) and medications are available, but taking precautions to keep your mood steady throughout seasonal changes is also recommended.
