SAD lights. Any good?
I did a bit of research a few weeks back they are around £150-200 for the most popular ones.. that put me off a bit but I’ve put a light next to my desk thats quite white and bright and thats helped… more of a placebo as apparently it gives no effects… but not sure – worth a try maybe?Posted 5 years agocouldashouldawouldaMember
We got one for a relative last year and she swears by it. It was a Lumie, around £100 and it’s seriously bright (so much so the kids dont go near her or it when its on!).
Apparently the key effect is to be close to it when it’s on. She does her morning hair / makeup routine in front of it.

@kevevs – I dont know how bright they are but as a guesstimate of its ability to light up a room I’d say its probably comparable to a 3-500w halogen security light. The difference is you sit close to them (and dont get burnt with the heat I guess). But I’m sure diy versions are out there.Posted 5 years ago
I like how people use them at work, sounds too expensive to run at home! do they use these things in Sweden/norway etc where they have **** all light in winter and high suicide/depression etc and even booze is too expensive! I’m curious how these things work. I doubt it’s anything medical/chemical. Bright light just makes people “feel” better? like the polar opposite of Gizmo from Gremlins.Posted 5 years agoalexpalacefanSubscriber
Yep, they work on the Pineal gland, causing it to do whatever it is that it’s supposed to!
The company I bought from (a few years ago now)had a free trial period. You paid and there was a no-quibble return period. When I asked how any return might go they didn’t know, having never had one returned! I can certainly see why, it really works for me.
