If you suffer from a lack of energy, feel low and find your motivation waning, you may be suffering from Winter Blues. The Winter Blues is a condition caused by the seasonal changes in the amount of available sunlight we are exposed to each day. During light therapy, a light therapy device or light box is placed near you while you work or sit for periods of time. The light box gives off full spectrum lighting that mimics the natural outdoor light spectrum.
Light therapy is thought to alter your circadian rhythms and suppress your body's natural release of melatonin. The resulting changes help reduce or control symptoms of the Winter Blues and other conditions. Light therapy is also known as bright light therapy or phototherapy. The HappyLight® line of sunshine supplement systems emulates natural light using full spectrum lighting technology to effectively address seasonal depression associated with long winters, rainy weather or lifestyles that dictate too much time spent indoors.
