London: Women get `winter blues` as dark evenings and chilly temperatures prevent them from venturing outside, a new study has found. Lack of daylight can also make women feel `sad` as experts say most people feel down from time to time in winter and many suffer with seasonal affective disorder (Sad). Sad is a type of depression thought to be caused by a lack of daylight, said Dr Rob Hicks, a medical journalist and General practitioner. Almost twice as many women (28 percent) as men (15 percent) admitted seeking solace in stodgy meals and carb-heavy snacks since the clocks went back in October. A whopping 77 percent of women as opposed to 64 per cent of men say the reduction in daylight negatively affects their eating habits. Some 37 percent of women claimed shorter days were more likely to keep them inside, compared to 28 percent of men, the survey by Anglian Home Improvements found.
