If you know me, you know that I have serious problems with winter. It’s not just the icky cold and wet; it’s the dark. I have SAD, Seasonal Affective Disorder. It drains my energy and makes me, well, sad and depressed. I have, over the years, tried several different kinds of special SAD lights. I want to share the one I am using now, because it is great.
Actually, it’s not one light. It’s a pair of lights and a reflective surface built into a pair of glasses. They look very sci-fi but they work.
And since they are wearable, and run on batteries, I can use them and still walk around and do other things. They don’t cover your eyes; they sit right above them, or in my case, right above my glasses, and make pretty rainbows on your eyes. You don’t see the rainbows, you just get a little glare.
Mine are made by Luminette (available on Amazon) and I do recommend them by brand name. No, I’m not affiliated with them, and I get no bonuses if you buy them. I just know and love them. I’ve used mine for more than a year with no disappointments. They are light enough to wear for the 20-30 minutes that you need to wear them, they work, the batteries last a decent amount of time, and they are easy to recharge. They come with their own little carrying case and the charger and cord fit in the top of the case.
I really think of them as my miracle glasses. I can tell that there is a positive difference in both my energy level and overall mood on the days I wear them.
Anyone else out there need winter encouragement?
