Beware of the Winter Blues

With these chilly days and freezing nights, half-a-million Americans will suffer from seasonal affective disorder.

At first many Americans will just be tired of the cold and snow, but over time, this kind of weather could cause a form of depression.

Some of those signs are feeling fatigue, having less energy, or have the tendency binge eat.

However, there is away to change your winter blues, by simply getting off the couch and doing the things you love to do.

"Getting some sort of exercise, finding some sort of light source, generally if you don't have something inside, outside is usually better," says Clinical psychologist, Mary Ann Watson.

Experts also say spending time with friends or family will help bring some relief to your winter blues.
