I'm a Lazy Blogger - or - Welcome to February!

It was bound to happen. February would come around on the calendar again. And, after celebrating my birthday on the 2nd of the month (yes, Groundhog Day), I would descend into The Winter Blues. Damn it.

Winter Blues? Yes Winter Blues. Mild SAD. Light Seasonal Affective Disorder.

So far I'm doing better than usual. I'm taking my doctor-suggested supplements. I'm attempting to eat the things I need to eat. I'm trying to keep my sleep/wake schedule as regular as possible. I'm spending time with people who lift me up. I could be doing more like exercising and taking green breaks and getting out in the sun when it shows up.

An effect of my version of Seasonal Affective Disorder is to feel less interest in the things I normally find worthy of my time, including this blog. (Of course, my relatively new fascination with Facebook could be part of the problem. Let's not think about that for the moment.)

Commitment time. I'll do my best to be regular here at The Human Condition.

Here are links to more information on Seasonal Affective Disorder for those who might be interested:

MedLine Plus from the U.S. National Library of Medicine

Mental Health America, formerly the National Mental Health Association

Bonus round: Did you know that there is a summer version of SAD?
