The winter issue of Planet Mindful magazine carries my article on Seasonal Affective Disorder and its milder variants, like ‘the winter blues’ and ‘crying into the mince pies’.

I interviewed a wise and generous yoga therapist, Dr Lisa Kaley-Isley, to get her take on the seasonal slump. She’s a psychoanalyst as well as a yoga teacher, and has so much good stuff to say about why people get sad and how they can bring more light and joy into their winter lives.

We came up with a four-part prescription for simple techniques and small attitude changes that anyone can implement. Read the full article here (you may have to zoom in a lot!) or buy the magazine at WHSmith, major UK supermarkets or Barnes & Noble in the US.
