Let their be light!

Advantages: Keeps the dark away, in more ways than one
Disadvantages: A little expensive
I think I've probably suffered from SAD for a few years now. This winter I decided enough was enough. No more dreading the cold winter mornings and not being able to get out of bed and just generally feel down in Winter.
I searched on the internet for what would be the best Lumie light for me. I decided on this one as it was the tallest and I thought it would give out the most light, therefore give the biggest benefit. I bought my lamp from Boots for £139.
This was an expensive purchase but one that I feel the benefits well outweigh the price.
The idea is to sit in front of the lamp for 60-90 minutes a day (or whenever you feel you need a top up). The way I did this was sit it on a chair at the front and to the side of me while I was watching TV or reading a book. You shouldn't be looking directly into it, the light just has to reach your eyes.
I felt the difference from the first few uses. Last time I put it on I actually smiled as soon as the light came on. I didn't notice this until it happened. It obviously has a good effect on me subconciously.
I would definitely recommend the Lumie brand if you have SAD. There are various other products including a travel sized light and a desk lamp.
Summary: Perfect for blasting away those winter blues
