Medical experts warn that the medical impacts of summer time could be even worse this year
Daylight saving time ends this weekend, and while we’ll gain an hour of sleep on Sunday, experts say shorter days aren’t always good for our mental health, which can also reduce your ability to fight infections

As many as 10 million people suffer from seasonal affective disorder in their prime months, and many of those same people are already battling the depression and anxiety brought on by the pandemic
« Winter people are more depressed, they are anxious, they are stressed because they don’t get sunlight, which is very good for all our moods, » Parikh said
