With a general perception that it’s healthier to avoid the cold weather than be amongst it, many of us are not planning to surface again until sometime in September!
I’ve recently noted the value in avoiding Seasonal Affective Disorder, which is good and well when you are two years old and have no occupational commitments. But how do grown-ups practically avoid this and the associated losses in health and productivity?
