    I used to fall into depression long time ago, nowadays it's really rare and just happens when it's a really stormy day.

    You have what the medical field calls Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD. It is pretty common and very natural, so don't get too down. Just try and think a little more positive at this time of year. Try to get past some of the anxiety and learn how to overcome some of the pain by avoiding some things that make you feed sad.

    Most commonly, it is you wake up, and it is dark, right? Maybe try turning on the lights in the morning, playing some of your favorite music. Be proactive about it.

    You could get a lightbox (mentioned in FullMetal's link), I believe they are meant to help.

    It's not that just being dark makes you depressed, it's that your not getting enough sun daily. because it's winter, the sun is out only half the time, and emmisions from the sun are cut down. people who get affected by this have sesonal depresion. My dad has it and gets really angry in the winter, he's really hard to live with. But we recently found out about this special light that gives off the emmisions that affect seasonal depression. so now that my dad has it, he's perfectly fine in the winter, which is quite a reliefe.

    I get Seasonal Affective Disorder too. Light boxes are really expensive, so I asked my doctor what else would work. He told me that sitting in a tanning both for five to ten minutes has the same effect. My gym has free tanning, so I do that. It's pretty sweet.

    Actually, it gives off uv rays, so yeah, you could technically get a tan.

    Exposure to the sunlight actually produces serotonin and other neurotransmitters that fight depression. Hence the feelings of sadness, drowsiness or lethargy.
