Does anyone checking the attendance of bloggers around? I sure should have a couple of days absences recorded. My workload is stressing me out now that the term is almost at it’s end. Aside from this, the varying weather temperature is also making me tired from the time I wake up in the morning till I come home from work. Double brrr! It’ll be Christmas holidays in three weeks but I feel like I can’t wait that long. Still dark when I go out for work and already dark coming home from work, lol! Seems like a mountain of coal surrounds me when I’m walking in the streets.
But if I consider which of the two makes me tired, it’s apparently not the workload but the weather. I constantly complain about the weather that’s getting me cold to the bones. I’ve never complained about how warm it is in Davao before but now that I’m living in a cold country and everytime we get there, I complain about it, too. Where exactly should I put myself now, hahaa!
Back to this awful weather, I heard from the radio a couple of days ago that there are many people suffering from winter anxiety or depression. It’s the so called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), probably caused by a lack of sunlight. When I checked myself if I qualified to be called a SAD individual, here’s the result when I pondered each symptom of it:
Feel sad, grumpy, moody or anxious
Of the five words, moody describes best about how I react to being dark and cold.
Lose interest in your usual activities
Yes, I do. Sometimes I can set aside blogging and other things just to muse with something that makes me warm, like laze on the couch and watch films.
Eat more and crave carbohydrate, such as bread and pasta
Now this is hardly imaginable. I eat like a bird during cold and dark days, lol!
Absolutely not happening to me, haha! Any tips on how to gain weight, I’d love to try it!
Sleep more and feel drowsy during the daytime
In my case, I sleep less and feel drowsy the whole day. I told you I’m a night person.
I’m not getting close to having winter depression, although I feel the need to be cautious about the possibility of becoming one. Think about it, Marlene!
