I get very depressed when the winter comes or when it gets very dark early. I have tried Vitamin D but its not working or 5-HTP and it doesnt work either. Do you guys have any techniques on how to overcome this?

Seasonal affective disorder of something like that. More common than you would think apparently. Do you live in a warm sunny country?

I live in New York we only get a few months hot
Oh dam ok. We get alot of the Seasonal affective stuff here too. Seems to be mostly the people who live in more northern latitudes. I hear hibernation is good. Or lots of psychedelics but id never condone that sort of behaviour 😝

Me too. I don't do well in the heat. Plus nature is so much more beautiful from August onwards

What's your summer temps in Canada? I can understand why you'd appreciate the sun more if you get much less sunlight.
Sometimes in Australia, you walk outside and you can immediately feel the sun burning your skin. Last summer we had days of 48 degrees Celsius...

On a good day 30 degrees.
I like the hot sun beating off my skin, never too hot.

It’s mostly around 25 degrees during the summer time. Sometimes it’s still snowing in April 😖

But you get teh wind off Lake Ontario. I'm in London (Ontario), so we get the same temps, but we can get super humid, too.

There are special sunlight spectrum lights that can help with seasonal depression, by fooling you into feeling like you get more sun in a day.

Yes, I also feel more depressed in the winter, particularly when it gets dark around 4:30pm. As soon as the sun goes down I just suddenly lose all motivation. It doesn't help that my room gets horribly cold, either. I feel much better mentally during the spring/summer - I understand people who hate the heat, but for me it's just that the days are longer/brighter it makes me feel much more optimistic.
