Winter can be tough on some people:

Not sure I agree with the other stuff…but I can empathize about the winter part up north. Winter can be tough on some folks. SADS is very underrated (and not taken seriously enough by those in the medical community).

I’m lucky that I live in a more rural area - and on the coast with more green (a northern big city can be very bleak in winter). The coast seems to slow down the seasonal change into winter, I think the white sand and bright colors of the homes help a bit. Also, I get to head into the subtropical south each winter for a time. When you go from 30’s or 40’s F , periodic overcast skies, and stormy weather….to the stability of the daily weather in Florida with sunny skies and 70’s (even 80’s F now and then) it seems winter just fades away as a season. I can’t imagine a December or January not going in the pool or sitting on the beach to recharge. In some years we have a joke….we try to live “endless summer”. Come mid December, there is only one sign I want to see driving on I-95:
