Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that you experience during particular seasons or times of the year. Most commonly throughout the winter months, with dark nights, dull days and lack of sunshine.

Exposure to sunlight releases happy hormones such as serotonin that helps boost your mood. Our days are getting shorter which means we are now going to be exposed to a limited amount of sunlight. The Tanning Shop are here to help!
