Light therapy as a treatment against winter fatigue and SAD (Seasonal Affectiv Disorder) has been known for decades, and is both acknowledged and proven effective. Light therapy is recommended for those of us who have difficulties getting through the winter and are affected by varying degrees of bad mood, fatigue and low energy. Statistics say that 5 - 8% are affected by a severe winter depression. But more than half of us eperience a clear difference between summer and winter, and in fact we can all enjoy the benefits from additional daylight.
In light therapy, the general recommendation is to acquire a powerful light therapy light / daylight lamp and place yourselfin front of it 30 minutes every morning. Most people tryingthis realises that the light has a good effect: You get a better start to the day, feel energised and the mood is higher.
However, light therapy has two significant disadvantages: firstly, the light boost you get in the morning should last all day, which can be difficult. Typically the effect wears out during the day.
But the biggest challenge is to find time and quiet in the morning to spend half an hour in front of the daylight lamp. Studies show that up to 90% of light therapy users do not use their lamp during the following winter simply because it is inconvenient and conflicts with morning routines ad tasks.
