What can you do? See your Chiropractor Though not a treatment for SAD, the chiropractic approach has been a blessing to countless individuals who suffer from seasonal depression. “The symptoms that SAD encompasses fall under the category of stress, which is a major trigger for vertebral subluxations,” states Raffaella Villella, Chiropractic Director of Chiro One Wellness Center of Lakeview. “It’s no coincidence that SAD typically falls around the holidays when we’re stressed with family, financially, and may be over-extending ourselves. Maintaining a consistent chiropractic adjustment schedule is essential for dealing with the stressors of SAD.” Chiropractors take a natural, drug-free approach by correcting vertebral subluxations (nerve interferences) in the spine. Chiropractic care allows the body to operate at its full potential.

“The most common cause of fatigue is dehydration,” Kotsopoulos says. Why? “If there is not enough fluid in your body, blood volume can drop; as a result, your body (and heart) must work harder in order to supply your cells with oxygen and nutrients.”
Dehydration can cause everything from mental fogginess, impaired short-term memory, dizziness, and fatigue, she says. Be sure to hydrate all day long but especially when you start to feel fatigue coming on to help combat low energy.

“Shifting your posture can immediately give you more energy,” says Dana Davis, a certified yoga teacher and Balance Posture Method instructor at Sonoma Body Balance, in Petaluma, California. We typically sit or stand with our shoulders, neck, and head shifted forward, which can affect the arteries that bring blood to our brain, Davis says.
“When [the arteries] are bent out of shape, that can restrict the blood flow to the brain. Our misaligned posture also wastes a lot of energy, as the muscles have to take over work that the bones would normally do in a healthy person.”
Davis recommends a healthy, naturally aligned posture to help reduce long-term fatigue and stress. For help finding the most energizing posture, watch Davis’s quick tutorial on sitting posture.
