            Hello, as you mentioned, you are having a little case of depression. If your depression is severe, spravato treatment is an option. When treating minor depression, medication is often helpful.

              SAD, often referred to as seasonal depression, is a type of depression that only manifests during specific seasons, usually in the fall and winter when there is less sunlight. Although I’m not a medical expert, the following basic advice might help reduce the symptoms of seasonal depression:

              Consider employing a light therapy box, which emits intense light resembling natural sunlight, for this treatment. You can assist your body’s internal clock function properly and elevate your mood by exposing yourself to this light for a set amount of time each day.

              Get outside: Getting some fresh air and natural light might be helpful even on cloudy days. During the day, go for a stroll or engage in other enjoyable outdoor activities.

                  SAD, often referred to as seasonal depression, is a type of depression that only manifests itself at specific seasons of the year, usually in the fall and winter when there are fewer daylight hours. Despite the fact that I’m an AI and not a medical expert, I can provide some general advice that can assist with managing seasonal depression:

                  Light therapy: The absence of sunlight is thought to be a major contributor to SAD. Utilizing a dedicated lightbox that produces intense light akin to natural sunshine is part of light therapy. Each day, especially first thing in the morning, spending time in front of a lightbox can help symptoms go.

                  Go outside: Spend as much time as possible outside during the day, especially if it’s cloudy, to increase your exposure to natural light.

                    I had also suffered from very similar issues so you are not alone in this. When it was overcontrolled, then I consulted with my doctor through telehealth Ongo Care. My doctor understood it well and helped me to do some tasks in my daily life. After several video sessions with my doctor, I always think of new ideas for relaxing and try to find things that help ease my seasonal depression. Now I overcome this and am well now with some of my busy schedules. Now I am used to liking going for a walk, reading a book, listening to music, riding a bike, reconnecting with friends, etc. I suggest, you can do what makes you happy and can help you relax, it will be a good tool for you. I hope this helps!
