Fighting Off Seasonal Depression from Rainy Seattle Weather
Keep your seasonal depression low by eating more fish!
As we know well that rainy and cloudy sky is tropical weather in Seattle. What comes with these conditions, dark and rainy is Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). This type of depression is related to changes in seasons. The lack of sunlight is the main cause of this type of depression. The expert suggests that spending more time outside will help, but the rain is a massive barrier that stops people in the West Seattle area from doing activities outside.
However, there is another way that we can prevent SAD during the dark and rainy times, which is eating food that contains high Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids help reduce the symptoms of depression and increase the effectiveness of some anti-depressant medications. So, how can we get the Omega-3 fatty acids from? What kind of food contain Omega-3 fatty acids? The answer to these quires is fish. All fish is the best resource for Omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamin D. Also, fish has a high protein. It is a low-fat food that provides a wide range of health benefits. Hence, adding more fish into your meal instead of other kinds of meat to benefit you to have better both physical and mental health.
