What is the Daylight Therapy Lamp?
This innovative lamp that aims to help stimulate your brain and target your day to day mood. This product is designed to help lift your mood and provide you with greater feelings of comfort and warmth on a day to day basis. It does this by emitting unique light that mimics the naturally invigorating properties of sunlight that stimulate the brain in a way that is unachievable with regular artificial light. This is especially important for sufferers of Seasonal Affective Disorder, a mood condition that affects many people during the winter months.
What is SAD and light therapy for depression?
During the Winter time, a specific problem can affect many people known as SAD or Seasonal Affective Disorder. As human beings, our bodies are hardwired to react to natural environmental factors, most significant of all is the sun's light. Many people find themselves experiencing a drop in mood during the Winter months as the days grow shorter and sunlight becomes scarce. 1 in 4 people experience a mood or cognitive problems and for Seasonal Affective Disorder, in particular, prevalence is four times higher in women.
Therapy Lamps (or Sad Lamps) are an amazing scientific way to tackle this problem and studies have shown that they have an influence on this problem. They mimic the sun’s rays perfectly, stimulating the release of serotonin in the brain. This can help generate a positive mood and keep you feeling yourself throughout the colder and darker periods of the year. Light box therapy is incredibly popular, and sadlight therapy lamps are considered a must have for people who experience deflated mood at certain times of the year.
