Brigid’s lovely thankful post.
“I have used a small SAD lamp for many years now, and realise I need LOTS of natural daylight as part of my self healing regime.
SAD or seasonal affective disorder affects many people worldwide, most notably in countries furthest away from the Equator. Lack of natural daylight can induce a number of symptoms , mostly in winter, but in some sufferers all year round, including:
- Sleeping more than usual
- Cravings for carbohydrates
- Difficulty in concentrating
- Decreased libido…
I use my SAD lamp at various intervals throughout the year, beginning a treatment programme with an hour or so early in the day, then adjusting as needed. I find it best to use the lamp in the morning, otherwise I feel too wide awake at bedtime.”
