41 - How to Deal with SAD
It’s 2020 and high time we stop minimizing mental health issues. So why do so many people joke about having seasonal affective disorder? Sometimes universal emotions like sadness are likened to the symptoms of mental illness, which really doesn’t help us understand, connect, or seek treatment when we’re suffering. It’s important to clarify and understand this first: Sadness is a normal human emotion. We experience sadness our entire lives and will continue to for our remaining time on earth. We tend to be sad about something—triggered by an event, a circumstance, a thought. This also means that the state of being sad changes; it comes and goes with time once we’ve processed the triggering event. But sadness on its own is different than a more serious mental health disorder. Yes, it is a huge bummer when the holiday season ends, but a prolonged state of depression that begins to occur as we march toward the shortest day of the year? That’s more serious than sadness alone. Depression—and in the case of this essay, seasonal affective disorder—is not a normal emotional state. It’s a mental illness that changes all sorts of important functions like how we think, how we process emotions, how we perceive what is going on around us. The difference between depression and SAD is that the latter usually begins and ends around the same time of year.

My short and sweet review is that I patiently wait for new episodes— I find the conversations and topics intriguing, purposeful, and I walk away with value added to my life. Thanks, Kate!
Thoughtful and very real!
Kate is refreshingly honest. She’s fabulous and her husband and her have a lovely dynamic. It’s very entertaining she’s so real it’s like listening to a friend with great tips for living well and being kind to oneself and the importance of learning and growing as we go.
I’m so grateful for this podcast!!
Never reviewed a podcast before but felt the need to give back what little I can to support Kate. I can’t tell you how much this resonates with me, as someone who is trying to navigate life with ADHD. Kate’s transparency with her struggles with the little things have made me feel SO much less alone. She recognizes specific tendencies and behaviors that I relate to and hearing her methodically access these issues head on inspires me to do the same. She shares her personal solutions and keeps the podcast concise, informative and easy to digest. If someone as successful and talented as Kate is struggling with these issues and can find ways to not only conquer but transform them into “superpowers”, I can do the same.
I also appreciate how revealing she is about her company and building her brand. I’ve been following Wit&Delight for design inspo for a long time and have gained 1000x more respect for the company since I started listening. Kate— I sincerely THANK YOU for taking the time to share your wisdom with us!! <3
