Season change should prevent “psychological cold”
At the time of this season change, psychologists said that large changes in sunlight and temperature will easily affect people’s emotions. Some small things that were not noticeable, catching up with this season will induce emotional instability factors.
According to statistics, 30% of people feel the changes in the weather and have various symptoms of discomfort. Therefore, it is recommended that the public should prevent “psychological cold” during seasonal changes, and pay special attention to the occurrence of seasonal affective disorders.
Children get tired of seasonal affective disorder. “When some children get into the winter, their tempers become particularly bad. They talk back to their parents, teachers, classmates, and even quarrel. They don’t like socializing with others. They don’t bother to get up in the morning, and their academic performance declines.
But in the spring, summer, and fall, he became completely like another person, his learning progressed, and his temper was much better.
“Li Yan, director of the Department of Psychological Sleep, Guangdong Provincial Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, said that this is actually a child mental illness-seasonal affective disorder.
Children with seasonal affective disorder usually start a series of depressive symptoms from October to December each year, which lasts from March to May the following year, and then disappear or relieve on their own.
According to research, children with seasonal affective disorders are mainly caused by the effects of light on the body’s biochemicals.
Experts say melatonin may be closely related to the disease.
When there is less sunshine in winter and the night gradually becomes longer, the melatonin in the blood also lasts longer, resulting in excessive sleep, laziness and irritability.

“Because patients have depression symptoms with the arrival of winter and the reduction of sunlight, when spring comes and the day becomes longer, they will gradually get out of depression and return to normal mood and vitality.
”Not only do children suffer from seasonal affective disorders, but adults and adolescents are also spared.
“Li Yan said that seasonal affective disorders usually start in adulthood (the average age of onset is 23 years), and women are four times that of men.
About 11 million people are currently diagnosed with seasonal affective disorder.
Why women are more susceptible to the disease, the study suggests, may be because they are more sensitive to the time of daylight.

Experts suggest that after winter, do more outdoor sports or go for a walk and bask in the sun.
If it is cloudy, you can try to extend the lighting time in the room as much as possible and keep the indoor lighting bright.
Studies have found that when night comes, the melatonin secretion of the human pineal gland increases, which can affect people’s mood, and light can inhibit this hormone secretion.
Secondly, sleep is a barometer of recurrence of mental disorders. If drowsy, family members should pay attention to these early signals at any time, and timely understand the patient’s abnormal performance and seek medical treatment.
If there have been patients with mental illness who have recurred due to seasonal changes in the past, it is best to intensify the treatment appropriately under the guidance of a doctor before the seasonal changes, such as increasing the amount of drugs appropriately to avoid recurrence of chronic diseases.
