If you've been gaining weight over the last few weeks and have no idea why, you may have the holiday blues! Interesting to read that 1 in 5 of us are pretty down during the holidays. They're calling it the winter or holiday "blues." A lot of it has to do with the lack of sunlight.
Symptoms: Anxiety, weight gain, lack of energy and withdrawal.
This affects women and young people most, and those living at higher altitudes.
Solution: Get out in the sun, or use a light box for at least 20 to 30 minutes per day, according to this article. Take some vitamin D and exercise. If it persists, get some professional help.
