Winter Getting You Down?
Seasons can have a profound impact on mood. Consider how you feel during the summer months when the sun is shining in the morning and after you leave work. Now consider driving to work on a cold, dark winter morning. If you don’t get out of the office during the day, you may not be exposed to any sunlight. If you’re vulnerable to the winter blues / Seasonal Affective Disorder, you may experience a shift in mood that affects your ability to thrive.
Up to 25 per cent of North Americans experience some form of winter blues, and at least twice as many women as men develop this condition. Most experience such feelings between the ages of 20 and 40, but even young children may suffer. Approximately 5 per cent of North Americans experience a severe form of winter blues called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), which is medically recognized as a sub-type of major depression.
Relieve the Symptoms of SAD With Light Therapy
Research indicates that individuals who suffer from SAD are affected by light, which plays a major role in the secretion of melatonin. Most who suffer from SAD respond well to the regulated bright light therapy provided by The Litebook®. Clinical research shows that the wavelengths of light emitted by The Litebook® may assist in regulating the body’s melatonin levels.
