Check your blood pressure at home.
For some people visiting the doctor or the hospital increases our blood pressure. This can be due to anxiety and can result in false readings when the clinician measures your blood pressure. The study also suggests that the opposite may hold true for some people, with their blood pressure decreasing when in a surgery or hospital. Although researchers are more sceptical of this and think it might be linked to changes in activity. Either way the issue is that you could be putting yourselves at risk by having untreated high blood pressure (or hypertension in the medical world).

SAD is sometimes known as "winter depression" because the symptoms are more apparent and tend to be more severe during the winter.
