SAD is a type of depression that affects 5% of US adults annually. Which is around 1.6 million adults. There are little to no self-regulation tools out there for SAD. Our design tends to fill this gap and empower self-management in a more engaging way.

How might we help people self-regulate seasonal affective disorder and improve their quality of life?
