I see benefits in short winter days but I go outside as much as possible even in winter. I try and keep it natural as much as possible
Use one everyday for half hour or so, it has made a huge difference
Roughly Sept to March as I have bad SAD. + meds
These don't do the whole trick in fall/winter, but at least help.
V grateful to be in my good season right now! :D
I don't know about a light box but I have a very bright light on my desk in addition to my computer light. I'm always happy.
I got a light box this last winter at my doctor's suggestion. Though the literature that came with it said it's not to be used in people with Bipolar, my doctor told me I'd be safe to use it for 15 mins each day as close to noon as possible. I found it to be VERY effective. I did quite a bit of research on them before I bought it, so if you have more questions or want more info, let me know. I did a ton of research on them before I bought mine.
