WEBE Wellness: Drink Coffee To Beat Seasonal Affective Disorder

Daylight Saving Time just ended and believe it or not we’re now past sunset! With the days getting shorter, and less sunlight, you may start to get Seasonal Affective Disorder. But believe it or not, there may be help – a cup of coffee.

The change in time and weather makes us feel more anxious, it’s harder to concentrate, we lose the motivation to exercise, and we start to feel sad in general.

But a new survey shows coffee helps with all those issues.

It helps with concentration, improves mood, and give us energy.

The big question is how much coffee do we need to feel these effects?

Well, a previous study showed that participants in a survey had a sustained improvement of mood throughout the day when they had a cup of coffee every four hours.

So, the next time someone in the office makes a Starbucks run, make sure you give them your order!
