Sad and hypnotherapy


Published on SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder)

is not a huge problem on the Gold Coast, but it does happen. SAD is caused by people not getting

enough exposure to sunlight, as sunlight stimulates the pineal gland to produce feel-good chemicals. To

overcome despondency caused by a spell of gloomy weather, get outside more to chill out and to

exercise, increase your exposure to natural light and eat more oily fish.
