How to use "Out of sorts" in context?

As the days grow shorter, cooler, and drier, there is a natural tendency to feel "out of sorts." Our days typically consist of a strict routine punctuated by spurts of activity, followed by periods of relaxation and rest. But as the weather starts to change, so does our body's disposition. Suddenly, we're feeling a bit off, as if we're not in sync with the natural ebb and flow of life.

In fact, there's a scientific name for this phenomenon: Seasonal affective disorder, or SAD for short.
