This Can Literally Light Up Your Night

Happy Lights

Have you been singing the blues? Perhaps you need a little light in your life. Light therapy is a long-used and well-studied method for treating SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), but scientists are finding the light works well for other forms of depression as well — not just during the winter and spring but throughout the entire year. No matter what your struggles, we want to encourage you to give a light box a try.

Light boxes are relatively inexpensive. All you have to do is plug it in and sit near it while you work or watch TV. The box creates a light that is meant to mimic natural, outdoor light and therefore affects the chemicals in your brain that make you happier. You’ll feel better and may even sleep better because of it.

Hooray for light!

On a serious note, please see a doctor if you are struggling with depression so that you can find a treatment plan that best suits your needs. In the meantime, you can grab a light box for as little as $20-$30.

Give it a try and let us know how it goes.
