Women’s white-collar workers suffer from “emotional cold”
The continuous rain and rain caused urban women to suffer from “emotional colds”.
The reporter learned from the Zhongda Hospital affiliated to Southeast University that the neuropsychological clinic of the hospital can accept more than ten patients with “emotional cold” every day.
More patients with depression on rainy days According to Dr. Mu Xiaodong, a psychological clinic at the hospital, it was thought that patients on rainy days would be relatively small, but more than 40 such patients could be seen every day for the past two days.
And the ratio of women to men is 4: 1.
The age group is mainly concentrated in 25-45 years old.
The main manifestations are depression and anxiety symptoms, and even severe suicidal thoughts.
In addition to the recurrence of depression in patients with previous depressions, there are not a few new patients with depression.
Ms. Li, 22, has been working well in a company and has been very good at learning and working actively. However, she has recently experienced a downturn in mood, lazy work, and the work assigned by the leaders cannot be completed in time.
After the consultation, Ms. Li stated that she had no mental illness due to the recent weather changes, and felt that doing things could not help her spirit, she was not interested in some things, and she did not eat well and could not sleep.
The doctor diagnosed Miss Li as suffering from seasonal depression, known as “emotional cold.”
The pineal gland is the “culprit”. Dr. Yu analyzed that the cause was mainly related to the recent lack of sunshine in rainy days.
Dr. Mu told reporters that there is a “third eye” between our eyes, which is medically called the pineal gland. This pineal gland can secrete a melatonin.
Melatonin secretion is restricted by light.
When exposed to strong light, the secretion of melatonin decreases; in the dark, the secretion of melatonin increases.
When the human body has a lot of melatonin, it will inhibit the hormones that control the body’s cell activity and excitement, resulting in depression of the human body.
Otherwise, people will be relatively excited.
Women are richer and more emotional than men, so they are more sensitive to seasonal changes.
It is recommended to exercise on rainy days. Dr. Doctor suggested that white-collar women living in office buildings should exercise appropriately even in rainy days. You can jog for half an hour or play ball games three times a day.
You can listen to cheerful music and watch comedies to adjust your mood.
Keeping pets and flowers is a good way to regulate your emotions.
