Seasonal depression disorder is a type of depression that occurs because of lack of sunlight and the gloomy days.

It can be a reoccurring thing.

It's similar to a regular depression with symptoms like loss of interest, feeling tired, and feeling bad about yourself.

Specialists say there are ways to prevent and treat seasonal depression.

Behavioral Access Clinician, Heidi Aust-Cox says, "It is really important to try to get into the natural sunlight as often as you can when it is there. Even if it's cold outside, the natural light is definitely best, but they do have light therapy and you can do counseling as well as antidepressants. Those are the treatments for seasonal depression disorder."

Exercise is the best antidepressant and watching what you eat and how much you sleep is also an important factor.
