Some Factors Affecting Singles…

According to recent statistics, 45.2% of the US population was classified as “single” and that number continues to grow yearly. As more and more individuals find themselves “Single”, hopefully the misconceptions and stigmas that are associated with this population will also change. Single individuals deal with many factors that are very unique, that married people and couples are not aware off and may even take for granted. Many individuals are single by circumstances, such as separation or divorce, while some are widowed, but there is also a large group of single individual who are “singe”...

SAD… Seasonal Affective Disorder.

SAD… Living on the East Coast makes it a bit easy to write about this disorder, as winter is a definite unavoidable season.  With short, cold days, with little day light time, it’s no wonder this season affects so many individuals.  Seasonal  affective disorder (SAD), also known as “ winter depression”, or “winter blues”, affects approximately 10 million Americans.  Sad is characterized by depressive symptoms which appears in the fall or winter months  and lifts in the spring time.  Prevalence of SAD  Research suggests that 10 to 20 percent of...
