Age- Younger people are more likely to develop S.A.D then those who are older.
Family History- Having a blood relative with S.A.D can increase a person’s risk into developing symptoms.
Bipolar or Clinical Depression – A person who has already been diagnosed with bipolar or depression can have a higher risk of experiencing the effects of Seasonal Affective Disorder.
Living Far Away from the Equator- It has been reported that those who live far away from the equator have a greater risk of developing S.A.D symptoms because vitamin D and sunlight can help a person feel happier.
