Seasonal affective disorder (SAD), also known as 'winter blues' or 'winter depression', is thought to affect tens of thousands of people in the UK each winter.
If you've notice a significant mood shift and lack of energy in the winter months then it might be wise to invest in a form of light therapy like a SAD lamp.template type="amp-mustache"">>/amp-minute-media-player">>ADVERTISEMENTi-amphtml-sizer">
Light therapy works by mimicking exposure to sunlight, which increases the amount of serotonin, commonly known as the 'happy hormone'. Filtering out UV light, the £29.97 Soulcker Sad Lamp claims to help improve your mood, focus and sleep. And according to hundreds of Amazon shoppers, it really works.
With so many of us working from home and getting outside less, this SAD lamp is a simple and affordable way to brighten your home office and help to alleviate symptoms.
Designed to be used for half an hour to an hour every morning, it's fitted with 10,000 lux brightness, which is thought to be best for maximum effectiveness, specifically intended to lessen the effects of SAD.
Ultra thin and compact, it's versatile enough to be placed on your desk to give your work-from-home setup a major upgrade, impacting your energy levels and productivity.
