Mind Over Seasons

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.

    1. Interesting though that winter doesn’t get to me like fall. Living in Phoenix, cooling off is always welcome but that doesn’t typically happen until October.
