Highly Recommended HappyLight Full Spectrum Light Therapy System (HPLD) by Verilux
If you suffer from a lack of energy, feel depressed and find your motivation waning, you may be suffering from the Winter Blues.
Seasonal affective disorder is a type of depression caused by the seasonal change in the amount of available sunlight we are exposed to each day. As the fall and winter months move in the lesser amount of daily light we receive is the cause of this mood disorder.
The HappyLight Deluxe Sunshine Supplement Light System effectively combats the symptoms of SAD by activating your natural mood enhancers with up to 10,000 LUX of Natural Spectrum daylight to increase energy levels and brighten your mood, increasing your happiness. The HappyLight provides the maximum light therapy brightness recommended by the National Institute of Health so you get an entire daily dose of "sunshine" in just 30 minutes!
Using The HappyLight In Your Daily Life
The Verilux Happylight is as simple to use as any other lamp in your house. Simply plug the light into an outlet and switch it on. It takes a few minutes for the bulbs inside the Happylite to achieve maximum brightness. After that, simply position yourself facing directly or at a slight angle to the light.
SAD light therapy simply consists of sitting close to the sunlight simulator with your eyes open but do not stare directly into the unit. You simply need to be in close proximity to the Happylight. Hobbies and activities such as reading, computing, sewing, painting, handicrafts and needlepoint are perfect examples of some things you can do while engaging in light therapy.
How Long Should I Use The Light?
Each person's response to light is different, the length of time is dependent upon your unique physiology and how it responds to light. Typically, 30 minutes a day is sufficient. The best time for light therapy is during the morning right after you wak up.
You should start seeing positive results within a few days to a week of Happylight exposure. To maximize the effects it is important to set up distance and schedule that fits your personal comfort level. We recommend using the light daily and at the same time each day. You don't need to sit in front of the lamp continuously; you can split the time into several mini sessions. Continue using the Verilux Happylight until you feel mood improvement and increased energy levels.
How Light Therapy Helps You
Light therapy helps enhance your body's natural ability to increase energy and lift your mood and sharpen concentration. Verilux is a leader in creating products that emulate natural sunlight using full spectrum lighting technology. The HappyLight Deluxe invigorates you with natural "sunlight" helping to address the effects of reduced exposure to natural light.

While correct diagnosis of SAD has become more commonplace, treatment is the area where doctors and SAD sufferers need more education. In the past, doctors have been quick to prescribe an anti-depressant when a patient mentioned being depressed. While drugs can sometimes be effective for treating depression, light therapy is the natural, side-effect free alternative to anti-depressant pills.

I am a night nurse and have been for 10 years. I have not been happy at times and had no enthusiasm for anything, yet my life is uncomplicated and peaceful compared to others. I don't believe in taking pills unless absolutely necessary and just thought it was something I had to live with. It took about 10 days of using the HappyLight, but one day I just felt like the weight of the world had lifted from my shoulders. Sometimes I feel so happy that tears come to my eyes with gratitude. Thank you so much. I feel like I have my life back. - Kate J, AZ
Our challenged son has been using the HappyLight to lighten the room while reading, doing school work, etc and it really seams to be having a positive effect on him. With his eyes tending to cross he isn't complaining about his eyes being tired and his mood is improved. - Vicki H.
I have fought severe chronic depression for over twenty years and this is the one and only thing I have found that has helped me feel better in the winter or anytime I start to get depressed. I grew up in Ohio/Michigan/Indiana and remember feeling "badly" even at the age of 12, beginning each November and lasting until spring, when the days grew longer and the sun reappeared. I moved to Florida many years ago, but still suffer in the winter, when the weather becomes damp and chilly and overcast for days on end. My therapist suggested I purchase a S.A.D. lamp, and I am so very glad I did! I am grateful I made the decision to purchase this particular lamp because it is large enough to provide light to my head down to my chest, even though the cost was a bit more. My mental well-being is worth any price. As the documentation that came with the lamp stated, I DID begin to feel better in JUST ONE WEEK. Truly amazing. I may not need the lamp in the summer when the weather here is warm and sunny every day, but if I do, I am glad I have it. - Happy, Dunedin, FL
