Episode 114

SAD/Ben Hoffman

In this episode:

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a very common mood disorder in the northern hemisphere experienced during the fall and winter months by as many as 5% of the population who live there. What role does exercise and physical activity play in managing the symptoms and can exercise be helpful in preventing this problem? I review the evidence. Plus, an interview with multiple Ironman winner and 2014 IMWC runner-up Ben Hoffman. Ben has had a long and successful career that includes his win at last December's Patagoniaman Xtri in Chile. He joins me to chat about all of that as well as his plans for 2023.
