This review is from: Lumie Zip LED Portable SAD Lightbox (Personal Care)I love this light box. I have suffered from SAD for years but it had been just about manageable as I worked nights and was able to get out for walks during the day which helped. I then completely changed my job and lifestyle and was feeling fantastic until the days began to shorten and I was driving to and from work in the dark and unable to get out in the natural light. My mood rapidly went down hill and it took all my will power just to get out of bed in the morning, I felt physically and mentally exhausted, i just wanted to hibernate for 6 months (DO NOT DISTURB!!!!) I was miserable and my doctor recommended I try a light box, I chose this one because it was small and portable and not too expensive, I noticed a difference within a few days. I use it for half an hour every day from September to approx the end of March and wouldn't be without it now!! My next purchase is a body clock to help me get up, as this is still a huge problem, but at least I know using my light box at breakfast well make me feel much better.
I would recommend this product without hesitation!!
Ps A friend of mine used it for a week to help combat jetlag and was very impressed. No task too big for this little gem!!
