Meditation helps people with Seasonal Affective Disorder syndrome by rebalancing the body’s system, helping us to regain normalise circadian rhythms and enjoy a reduction in stress and negative moods. Meditation students find that the practice helps to rebalance the body’s hormone production and lead to increases in melatonin.

- The problem
Seasonal Affective Disorder – or SAD – is a debilitating seasonal depression that sufferers come to dread as summer fades and the nights draw in.
‘Affective’ is the psychiatric term for our emotional responses, and these get hijacked over the winter months by the lack of light hitting our retina. It prevents the cascade of neurotransmitters that otherwise keep us in a balanced and engaged mood.
Depression is the outcome – a biological phenomenon that can be as overwhelming as a major injury or disease.
This condition appears to be independent of both external events and internal strength. It is simply symptomatic of an imbalanced biological clock that responds inappropriately whenever light levels are low.
