Sun up!

Let’s face it, most Latinos love the sun and anxiously wait for the spring and summer to get here to get some rays. Yes, too much sun is bad for you causing you to freckle and sun spots, or even worse, melanoma, but let’s dig deeper.

Seasonal Affective Disorder

During the fall and winter months it’s often cloudy everyday. You might live in a city where it’s dark in the morning when you leave to work and dark when you come back. This might make you feel a little sad, tired, and with no energy. This is called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). This condition makes you feel sad when less natural sunlight is available. Your body rhythms get out of sync because you’re not getting enough sunlight. You’re not alone because about 3 % of the U.S. population feels the same way.
