Do the shorter, darker days of winter leave you feeling tired, listless, or downright depressed? While everyone might feel a touch of the winter blues now and then, others experience serious bouts of depression during the winter months known as seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Those suffering from SAD often feel depressed, irritable, and fatigued. In most cases, patients are treated with a combination of light therapy and anti-depressants, but research has also found that cognitive-behavioral approaches may be effective when treating seasonal depression.

One of the simplist natural remedies for SAD is light therapy. Light therapy involves purchasing a special light. This light replicates the rays of the sun. The person suffering from SAD sits in front of this light with their eyes open. This light is not found in normal incandescent household lights, and must be purchased exclusively for this type of therapy.
