When it comes to joints, colder temperatures have been known to impact the way things feel, and more aches and pains are not uncommon in the winter. Whether it be because of differences in air pressure that take place in the cold-weather months, or whether it is the chill in the air itself that creates a change, the cold weather can make things more challenging for seniors.
Seasonal Affective Disorder, often referred to as “SAD”, is a mood disorder that cycles with the seasons. It is a form of depression that is connected to seasonal changes in light, and impacts most people in the winter when days are shorter and sunlight is limited. It is speculated that the shorter days disrupt our bodies’ circadian rhythms, as well as change levels of serotonin and melatonin. Symptoms of SAD can often start to kick in during late autumn and carry right through to the end of winter. Seasonal Affective Disorder is basically, in more common language, an intense case of the “winter blues”.
As we all know well, the winters here in Canada can bring about incredibly cold days and nights, and it can be tough to keep warm sometimes. Seniors might experience the cold in an even more severe way because of the age of their bodies and the circumstances that come with the current stage of their lives. Helping seniors to think through the practices, strategies, tools, and reminders that they need to help keep themselves amply warm and cozy through the winter can help put everyone at ease and allow for a calmer, more comfortable few months.
