In the October English chat, we talk about fatigue related to darkness. Dark days during wintertime may make you feel more tired than ever.
In Finland we may have many sunless days in the wintertime. You may have heard someone refer to this sunless time as kaamos. Kaamos is often talked about when referring to the heart winter season in Southern Finland as well. Although in other parts of Finland there are many sunless days in the wintertime, the real kamos is experienced only north of the Arctic Circle.
The sunless days of winter are a difficult time even for us Finns. So, what is this time for those who are used to the sunnier winter time. On top of all that, people might get insomnia during kaamos time. That´s a very hot cup of tea from a mental health perspective. It is exhausting.
Come and chat with us to find out you are not alone with these problems!
The chat will be held on Tuesday 25th October. The theme is: Feeling tired all the time? (The link opens in a new window).
