light box

October 31st, 2006 at 10:36 am

I ordered a light box online today - a Litebook Elite. It's something I've been thinking about buying for three winters. I love Minnesota and the Twin Cities in the spring, summer, and fall...but the winter is really hard for me. I'm hoping this little light box will help perk me up, since it simulates sunlight. We'll see. If it works, it will be worth it. I'm dipping into savings to pay for it.

Happy Halloween!! This has traditionally been my favorite holiday. This year, I didn't dress in costume, didn't go out with friends, nothing. SO and I are going to carve pumpkins tonight and that will probably be the extent of it. I have the sense that my new apathy toward holidays in general is somewhat derived from rampant commercialism. We are expected to think about the next holiday months in advance. I have no interest in picking out Christmas stockings in July, thank you. Things move entirely too quickly these days. Can't we enjoy the current holiday for a moment, as it is occurring?

    Let us know how that light box does for you. I have an aunt that takes medication for seasonal depression and this might be a good alternative to the cost of meds in the long run.

    I'd like to know how the light box works as well. We get a fair amount of sun compared to you, but the days still get shorter and when it's cloudy, it's dreary. SAD has been a problem for me in the past.

    I've had a light box for three years now. I am very happy with the changes it makes in my seasonal depression.
