This lamp is what helps me to survive during winter
on 16 October 2010
I moved to the UK 4 years ago to study a PhD and nothing prepared me to what it seemed to be never ending grey days during fall and winter. But somehow I survived, until I moved to a new flat where my room and the kitchen didn't receive much sunlight. That was when I decided to get this lamp.
For me the main problem was during the morning, since it was really depressing to wake up in such conditions. This lamp has made a huge improvement during those dark weeks. I use it for around 30 min while I'm having my breakfast and getting ready to start my day. I noticed an improvement after only 4 days of using it. I felt with much more energy and optimistic every time I use it. Since it is really bright I usually use it on the side rather than in fron of me. And I usually don't use it more than 30 min since I got headache once after using it for a long time.
This lamp is not the sun, but it's a good substitute, especially for somebody that was used to have the sun all year-long. The only negative part about this lamp is the price, but if you suffer from winter blues you should definately invest in one of these. One more thing, the best is to use it everyday when the days are grey, since the effect is better than when I use it only some days. Finally, it works better for me in the morning, since it gives me lots of energy.
