Due to the nature of being away from home for so many months and the overcast, short days during the winter months, we recommend from experience that only those individuals with good physical and psychological health consider this position. From experience, it would be best if an individual who has previously or is currently being treated for depression, has taken or is taking anti-depressants or anti-anxiety medication consider a different AV position and location.
