Fall is near. It is a beautiful time of the year. The air just smells better! Even in the desert there are changes other than the obvious shorter days.
For most of my life I have felt a bit out of sorts during the fall. I have excused it away as growing up a military child, we moved often and there was frequently a new school I would attend, so my thought was that fall represents the anxiety of a new school.
But, I’ve heard there is an actual diagnosis for this “out of sorts” thing and it has something to do with the shorter days: Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). I don’t quite fit this “SAD” thing as winter doesn’t seem to get to me like fall.
I will focus on looking forward to the upcoming holidays with my loves and make sure this seasonal thing doesn’t have its affect on me. Mind over seasons.
