More than half-a-million Americans suffer from seasonal affective disorder (SAD). These people tend to experience depression when the days are shorter and darker, and perk back up in April/May, when we have more hours of sunshine. It’s important to get in mind that being depressed doesn’t just mean being sad or off, it’s a severe state of despondency that lasts for a prolonged period of time. Left untreated, depression can be very dangerous and wreak havoc on a person’s psyche.


Luckily, for someone suffering from SAD, there are treatments available. One that has proven to work is the SAD light box, which mimics outdoor light. Scientists believe that the SAD light causes a chemical shift in a person’s brain to lift one’s mood and ease symptoms. Most doctors recommend using a light box for at least 30 minutes each morning.
