Berlin: This winter is the darkest winter in Germany. It is the most dismal winter in last 42 years. “This winter is the darkest since 1951,” confirms meteorologist, German Weather Service.
Throughout Germany people are surprised these days, Where is Sun? Many people feel lethargic and depressed, sleep a lot. This is also known as the “winter blues”. People suffering from winter depression can no longer concentrate.
The UV radiation in sunlight stimulates the production of vitamin D, and strengthens the immune system. Half an hour a day light therapy can be effective but sun is missing these days. The current winter weather is also responsible for the severity of cold and flu wave says expert.
Soon the wait for some sunshine will come to an end. The temperature will rise slowly over the next week experts believe.
