Small, Compact LightBox to Help You Tackle Seasonal Affective Disorder
This bright lightbox is the perfect tonic for those awful winter blues. SAD is far more serious than just missing the summer, it can leave sufferers with a genuine feeling of depression and despair. You may find your morning alarm is met with a feeling of ‘what’s the point?’ or you may feel like you need to force 5 cups of coffee down you just to get yourself out the door. Seasonal Affective Disorder is a recognised form of depression, and it is not to be taken lightly. Fortunately, the treatment options are vast with LED light therapy often coming top of the bill; it is also recognised by doctors the world over.
Measuring just 16cm x 23cm (screen size 13cm x 18.5cm), this lightbox is the perfect size for bedside tables and office desks. It is lightweight and can easily be popped in your bag to take with you wherever you may need it. The fully adjustable stand allows you to stand the lamp almost fully upright or almost fully vertical and at every angle in between. You can select from three lighting modes, white, warm white or yellow and get the perfect level of brightness using the centre touch button.
The light provides you with 10, 000 Lux of light energy. Studies have shown that sitting in front of a 10,000 lux lightbox for about 30 minutes provides you with the optimal dosage of light to trigger biochemical changes in your brain. Emulating the uplifting effects of the sun, this provides the right amount of full-spectrum light needed to regulate melatonin and boost serotonin.
But What are Melatonin and Serotonin?
Melatonin tells you it’s time to sleep whereas serotonin tells you it’s time to wake. Low serotonin levels are more common in winter because serotonin is produced when we are exposed to sunlight. Low serotonin levels have long been linked to depression, which is why lightboxes that emulate the light we get from the beautiful sunshine are used all over the world to help boost serotonin and prevent overproduction of melatonin.
If you experience symptoms of SAD, whether severe or minimal, a lightbox such as this could be the answer to your winter woes!
SAD Light Therapy for Non-Seasonal Depression?
Research suggests that SAD lamps can be effective for those suffering non-seasonal depression also.
A study carried out in 2015 compared four groups:
- A placebo group
- A group that spent 30 minutes per day exposed to a 10,000-lux fluorescent light box (about the brightness of morning summer light)
- A group that took antidepressants daily; and
- A group that did both
After 8 weeks, 29% of the antidepressant group felt better while 50% of the light therapy group and 76% of the combination group improved.
