Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a depressive disorder felt during the winter months when the availability of sunlight both in terms of intensity and duration of sunlight hours is low.

Many people become deficient in a class of biochemicals called inhibitory neurotransmitters such as serotonin and Gamma Amino butyric acid (GABA) leading to feelings of depression and an inability to cope with life.

Many find themselves crying, feeling hurt unable to take criticism, cranky, and unable to handle even a hint of the simplest arguments.

This syndrome is sometimes called the winter blues. To handle the situation many just avoid others. Family members of sufferers get most of the brunt as their lives are turned into a hot mess or fighting match on a continuous basis.

How does this match up with computer use induced depressive symptoms?

To get the answer to this question read on…..

These same reactions can be induced as a result of computer use. Why?

Because the winter months mean fewer sunlight hours, the intensity of the sun is also low resulting in low periods and intensity of the availability of the inhibitory neurotransmitters that help us to be calm and that are responsible for our ability to handle life stresses. They control the production and firing of excitatory neurotransmitters that would otherwise keep us on edge and want to move around and be super active.

Inhibitors prevent us from burning out and help us exercise self-control and make decisions.

Well, during computer use, we use up a lot of inhibitory neurotransmitters in making all the constant decisions we have to take while in front of the computer. Computer use involves continual decision-making and is very stressful, using up our inhibitory resources fast. However though we use them up because computer light is not sunlight which we are coded to, our hearts do not recognize them as light fully and so do stimulate our brains to produce more. Neither do we eat specifically for computer use making sure our diets are adequate.

In addition, we are usually working away from the sunlight on the computer during the daytime when the sun is out and many do not realize they need to locate their workspace near a window and keep it open letting in the sunlight which will produce a sense of being in the presence of sunlight which will get the heart to stimulate the brain to produce more neurotransmitters.

We therefore just use up our resources without replenishment. This is why these two activities have similar results.

The fastest solution is to locate your computer near a window that you can leave open when warm and crack open during the winter months.
