Out­side ex­er­cise, es­pe­cially walk­ing, helps com­bat Sea­sonal Af­fec­tive Dis­or­der. He­len Han­son from The SAD As­so­ci­a­tion (SADA) says, ‘Not only is nat­u­ral day­light – even on an av­er­age day – bet­ter than any light box, ex­er­cise is also known to make us feel bet­ter. Morn­ing or mid­day light which has more ‘blue’ con­tent is the most valu­able, es­pe­cially in win­ter, and will help to im­prove mood and me­tab­o­lism dur­ing the day. Sun­light also helps to bring our cir­ca­dian rhythms (body clock) into line which leads to im­proved sleep pat­terns.’
