With fall just around the corner, many people will begin to feel depressed again due to seasonal affective disorder, also known as SAD.
Many people don’t even realize they have this disorder that’s caused by a lack of sunlight. SAD is a type of depression that occurs mainly during the cooler months of the year when there’s less sunlight during the day and people tend to stay indoors more. It doesn’t help that in our modern society, people leave for work before the sun comes up and sit inside offices during most, if not all, daylight hours and then leave the office for home right when it is turning dark out. Weekends aren’t any better when it’s too cold to go out and indoor locations have little natural light.
Does this sound like you? The changing seasons affect many people without them even realizing it.
The best cure for SAD is to get more sunlight, but this is hard for many people who don’t spend a lot of time outdoors in the fall and winter. Sunrooms are a stylish solution to getting more sunlight.
With glass walls, there is more of a connection between the indoors and outdoors. For people with SAD, this means getting more sunlight on the weekends and before and after work, while remaining comfortably indoors in the cooler months.
Sunrooms invite the outside in and remove visual and physical barriers to the outdoors. This allows for a great sense of space and creates a healthier environment with lots of sunshine.
