Seasonal affective disorder, or SAD affects many people during the winter months. Its especially prevalent in northern parts of the world from November through March where light levels are lower. Less sunlight can confuse our internal body clock…making us feel sluggish and depressed. Some people have described the feeling of being in constant jet lag.
For many people who suffer from SAD medication and counseling can help. Light therapy can also be an extremely effective treatment for seasonal affective disorder. A specially made light box can be used at home on a daily basis during the winter months. Sitting 18 inches away for about half an hour a day can make a big difference for people struggling with light deprivation. Equally impressive is that there are no side effects to using one.
The SunBox company in Gaithersburg, Maryland makes a quality light box… and no prescription needed.
