Even though Alabama experiences mild winters, even Southerners can experience seasonal affective disorder. The magnetic field changes, greatly affecting our circadian rhythms. The days are also "shorter," with less sunlight in our mornings and evenings. This can not only affect our sleep patterns but also our moods. A lot of people compensate by sleeping longer. In the reverse, we can sometimes lose our ability to fall asleep when the sun starts shining early in the morning and later into the evening. When our days seem longer in the summer, we may feel a natural need to wake up early and stay up later.

The best way to avoid problems sleeping or oversleeping is to keep a regular schedule no matter what time of the year it is. Wake up at a comfortable time in the morning and head to bed early enough to get at least 6-8 hours of sleep each night. To make up for the lack of sunlight in the winter, invest in broad spectrum lighting in your home to help you wake up each morning. Consider getting light-block curtains to help you maintain a sleep schedule during the sunnier summer months of the year!
