Fair enough! I agree that removing an anchor may not work for everyone who is affected by the winter blues. However, it seems to have worked for me so far and it may work for other people.Light therapy is by far the most powerful thing that has helped me function better during winter (after traveling of course).
I understand your point about anchoring, and while it can possibly work in certain cases, it's a different thing when your body physically craves light. You can't simply convince yourself that winter isn't that bad if you legitimately suffer from light deprivation.
Have you tried a natural anti-depressant called St. John's Wort? For it to work you need to take it every day for the whole winter and probably get a head start mid or late fall. It's always safer to check the side effects/consult a doctor prior to starting a treatment.
