HappyLight 6000 Reivew
In years past, the long New England winters left me nothing but SAD. (Seasonal Affective Disorder). This year my SAD hasn’t quite kicked in yet for a few reasons. We’ve had a mild winter with unseasonably warm temperatures and as of just before Thursday of last week, very little snow. I’ve increased my exercise, which releases more of those feel-good endorphins. Of course it doesn’t hurt that I am looking forward to something this winter; we are heading to Florida for a week in February.
Now, I have the opportunity to fight SAD with light therapy. I have the HappyLight 6000 on my desk to shine on my face. The unit is lightweight, compact, portable and has a sleek design. I just plugged it in and turned it on. There are two settings, I just use the brightest setting. The minimum recommended use is 30 minutes to 1 hour a day. The Happy Light should be placed within 24 inches of your face.
Just recently, there were mornings when I was up for two hours on the pc and outside it’s total darkness. What a nice change it is to have the HappyLight 6000 sitting on my desk. It is almost like having summertime daylight all year round. I’ve only had this light for a week and I don’t claim that I have this new surge of energy or anything, but I do feel more productive and much better than I did while sitting typing in the dark. Can light therapy actually curb sugar cravings? Now it’s time to really put the HappyLight 6000 to the test!
I was pleasantly surprised to see this quote by Dr. Norman Rosenthal, MD.
I loved Dr. Norman Rosenthal’s book Transcendence that I recently reviewed. That fact that he “subscribes ” to light therapy reinforces my conclusion that exposure to the HappyLight will no doubt help me to ward off the winter blues. On another note, I will have to check out Dr. Rosenthal’s book “Winter Blues.”
The replacement bulb for the HappyLight 6000 is $25, rather expensive, however I shouldn’t have to replace it anytime soon considering the current bulb is a 10,000 hour bulb.
Another reason to to be happy? I have the opportunity to host this giveaway of the HappyLight 6000!
