Seasonal depression isn’t just for winter. Heat can also trigger mood disorders.
Seasonal depression is a mood disorder with a pattern. People commonly associate it with winter, when the cold months and short days make people feel lethargic, agitated and even hopeless. But seasonal depression can also appear in the summer when extreme heat, excess sunlight and social tensions dominate.
“Seasonal affective disorder is experiencing symptoms of depression during a particular season,” says Dr. Christine Crawford, associate medical director at The National Alliance on Mental Illness. “Symptoms are at times severe enough to meet the criteria for major depressive disorder.”

My colleague Alia E. Dastagir spoke with Crawford about the factors that can exacerbate summer seasonal depression, who are most at risk and how they can cope.
Q:What causes summer seasonal depression?
Crawford: (In) the summer months, even if there is a lot of sunshine, there are many other factors, especially environmental factors and social factors, that can make it appear that people are more likely to experience symptoms of depression.
There is research that has looked at exposure to pollen levels and found that for some people in the summer months when they are exposed to more pollen, it makes them more agitated, more irritable, and it affects their mood. And that can have an effect on their mood. Day to day outlook towards life.
Q:Are some people more vulnerable to seasonal depression in the summer?
Crawford: If you’re someone who already has challenges falling asleep, being able to fall asleep and staying asleep on a regular schedule, it’s really important to talk to your primary care provider about who you are. There are options available from here to get you a good night’s sleep. If you are not well rested, this can increase your chances of developing symptoms of depression.
People who may have a family history of depression are also at risk, and those who are experiencing significant stress in their lives can affect their ability to maintain structure, routine, good sleep, good exercise, and social support. affect. All these things count for an overall good mood.

Should I exercise first thing in the morning or at night?
In this week’s Medical column, board-certified emergency room physician Michael Degnault discusses a new study about what times are best to exercise. Here’s what he breaks down:
Whether you’re considering starting a workout regimen or a more experienced athlete, the biggest question I hear is, “When is the best time to exercise?” Most people are quite protective when they exercise. Choosing to exercise in the morning or evening is often a product of work schedule or childcare responsibilities. Or is simply a “morning person” or a “night owl”.
But is there any science that supports exercising in the morning and exercising in the evening? A recent research study in Frontiers in Physiology sheds some light.
This was a relatively small study from Skidmore University that collected data from 27 women and 20 men who were already highly active with regular exercise routines. The participants were followed for more than 12 weeks. They did one of four different exercise routines — stretching, resistance training, interval sprints or endurance training — four times a week for an hour. One group regulated between 6:30 and 8:30 in the morning and the other group between 6 and 8 in the
