The light itself is huge, after lots of research i did want a bigger one vs a portable one as i wanted to be sure I didn't have to sit so close to it. This certainly fullfills this requirement however it's bigger than what I was expecting.
I tried it as soon as it arrived yesterday evening and felt slightly better. With colder and darker mornings, afternoons and evening i was feeling a sense of loss for the sun and suffering from low energy, motivation and feeling completely down, unable to complete everyday tasks.
I have tried again this morning and I am feeling a lot more optimistic and ready to get in the shower than i usually do. It could be a coinsdence but I think not. I am looking forward to seeing if this product can help me to overcome my winter blues which I have suffered with since being a child. Winter has always been a really depressing time for me and if this helps my survival and motivations of day to day life, when all I want to do is wrap up warm and hibernate untill signs of spring then it's definitely an investment.
Potentially 5 stars but it's too soon to see ultimate results will update in a week
I work in a dark office, on a mezzanine where there is very little natural light. This lamp has been wonderful at providing natural light to me (and my colleagues) particularly in gloomy mid-late afternoons. It casts a sunlight glow, and really has an impact on energy levels and mood. Its bigger than the lamp I previously had, and much brighter / better. We're investing in another one for home, for the winter months. I recommend this highly for anyone affected by the lack of light in winter and/or living in working in spaces without much natural light.
I've had this light for two days now, and the improvement for me is noticeable and significant. I'm left with a positive feeling for several hours after using it, and start to feel the benefit after as little as 10 minutes. It's definitely worth the cost. My main complaints are the very short lead, which makes it difficult to position well, and the lack of timer functions. I've bought a smart plug to help with the latter, but it's an extra cost and a clunky solution. Of course, the size makes it less flexible than smaller lamps, but I think I would struggle to get the same benefit from those. I don't need to be staring at this all the time.
Love it! Didn't seem to work miracles in the beginning but now I can def see the results. Also if I use it later in the evening I have difficulties with falling asleep so I found it to work best in the morning/ afternoon- my big cup of solar coffee :)
This is brilliant (no pun intended. If you can afford the extra that this lamp costs, you will not regret it. Bought it for my wife who is suffering serotonin depletion as a part of her recovery. I find it good for me too.
Love it for helping this owl to wake up in the dark mornings, but wish it had its own timer! I have it attached to a plug-in timer, which is annoying everytime I need to change it as it has to be behind a table for where I need it. Works well though.
I love this item. I’ve had it for a couple of years now and I use it for half an hour in the morning for 9 months of the year. Still going strong despite being knocked over several times. Really has helped me with SAD and I feel like it actually Eli’s me to wake up in the morning.
