Brighten your home and your mood during the gloomy winter months.
This clever 2 in 1 Halogen Heater is designed to keep you warm and lift your mood. The Halogen bulbs produce 10,000 lux white light, which mimics sunshine in order to increase serotonin levels in the brain.
Serotonin is the chemical responsible for our mood, and it is exposure to daylight which helps to keep serotonin levels high. During winter daylight hours are greatly reduced, so it is common to feel a change in our mood; we may feel lethargic, depressed or anxious, and may crave sugar and carbohydrates which can lead to weight gain.
High level light therapy is commonly used to alleviate these winter blues. It stimulates the photoreceptors in the brain, mimicking the effects of natural daylight in order to increase serotonin levels and promote happiness.
This halogen heater emits a bright light to lift your mood, and it acts as a heater too; it’s as close as you can get to basking in the summer sun in winter! It has 2 heat settings and a tip-over safety feature which turn the device off if it is knocked on its side.

It claims 10,000 Lux ( which is suitable to SAD) but does say at what distance?
Can you clarify for me please?
The optimum level to use a lamp like this as a SAD light is at arms length - that's usually 11 to 15 inches away from the light. It is best used so that it is shining on you, but that you're not looking directly at it.
Users report that they notice bright light therapy results very quick, with many noticing a marked improvement within one week. Some people similarly experience a rapid return of the symptoms if they stop using a bright light therapy system.
There is also evidence to suggest that increasing response to bright light therapy after two weeks, will show even more improvements after 3 to 4 weeks. With this in mind we recommended continues use a bright light therapy system.
I hope this helps.
