The Winter Blues
As fall approaches we can give our air conditioners a break and finally get some relief from the scorching sun and stifling humidity of summer. With this change of season comes many other changes, like fall colors, winter sports and let's not forget wardrobe. But for some, a change in mood is an all too familiar seasonal change as well.
Until recently, I had no idea just how common this condition really is! It's estimated that one-third of all Americans experience some symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder during the short days and long nights of winter. It's almost like as the weather gets colder and darker, so doing our emotions! That's a lot of people catching the winter blues!

As winter gets closer, we wanted to let people know more about Seasonal Affective Disorder and what they can do about it. Sadly, many people that experience this disorder chalk it up to simply feeling down, and don't realize that there are plenty of natural solutions that can help them feel energized and back on top!
On the topic of feeling energized, we came across a really interesting news flash about the effects of nicotine. So, we set out to bring you this article on how this main ingredient in cigarettes is now believed to not only be addictive but can also cause atrial fibrosis! And, it's ironic that almost every product designed to help you quit smoking contains nicotine!
See how you can quit smoking the natural way >
I hope you find our November articles both interesting and informative. Remember, we want your feedback. So, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us what you think.

Are You SAD? Help for Your Seasonal Affective Disorder
While autumn can be a beautiful and anticipated time of year for some, for many it can be somewhat melancholy, bringing about a change in mood as the season shifts. As daylight hours shorten, as many as 1 in 3 Americans notice increased feelings of lethargy and sadness, as well as a decreased number of bright and happy thoughts, as if their emotions are echoing the change in seasons.
This common condition, known as Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD, is a type of depression brought about by the change in seasons. Although anyone can be affected regardless of age, gender or location, SAD generally tends to be more prevalent in populations that live in more northern regions, where the changes in seasons are more drastic and noticeable.

Released by the University Hospital Magdeburg of Germany, this recent study revealed that nicotine in the bloodstream is a direct cause of Atrial Fibrosis, a condition which causes arrhythmias and is directly linked to Congenital Heart Failure.

Like withdrawal from other drugs, beating a nicotine addiction can produce serious symptoms like headaches, anxiousness and the inability to focus or concentrate, as well as many others.
