“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: It is the time for home.” — Edith Sitwell, poet and critic

The quote above is all well and good for individuals untouched by seasonal affective disorder, or SAD, but if you’re one of the 10 to 20 percent of the population that suffers from mild SAD, the winter months can knock you off your A game. Fall and winter SAD symptoms may include irritability, tiredness or low energy, problems getting along with other people and more, according to the Mayo Clinic. If you suffer from the winter blues, your home probably serves as a hideout in which you spend your weeks waiting for spring to arrive. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
