There's something I don't like to admit to myself, but here it is: I can't handle the darkness that well. As much as I try to ignore it, it affects me in a bad way. I grew up close to the polar circle where the winters are much much darker than they are in here, but the older I get the worse it is. Therefor I decided to get up early today and run some errands (and include a lunch bribe) which took all day and I really needed the light.
My cure used to be to accept the darkness but obviously I'm not that good at lying to myself. A long walk in daylight helps very much and as self-employed working in the evening is no problem really (as long as I don't fall asleep). What is your best cure against the darkness?
