SAD - Seasonal Affective Disorder
Or, what I like to call Winter.
For some reason I got it in my head that it only happened around February of each year and I think that's because that is *my* worst month. Cabin fever doesn't even begin to describe February for me.
You know what though, last year wasn't nearly as bad as the years before and that's because my hubby bought me a SAD light. Since moving, however, I've been remiss in putting it out and I was reminded by a post at Holly's that November is a hard month for most people because of the time change and less sun.
Hello! Why is it that the basic stuff that helps us function gets put to the back of our minds!
I'm trying to figure out where to put it. Last year it was at the top of our desk and I'm thinking since I'm on the computer at least an hour a day that that would be a good place. Thing is, the directions say you need to be very close to the light so I used to sit close (like a few hairs away) and read for twenty minutes. I think if I set it up by my reading chair then I will be more likely to get more reading done.
Holly also put it quite succinctly when she said she was having a hard time writing just a few sentences. I have noticed this with myself lately and since I lost the 'funny bone' I'm wondering if I should take a break. Like Holly I have a few posts I would like to write but they aren't coming out right.
I figure I'll sleep on it and see where I'm at tonight.
Before I head to bed I'll set up my SAD light for tonight and maybe that'll get my 'pep' back!
The picture above is the SAD light that I have and here is the site I found the picture at.
Yes. For me, it was worth every penny!
Anyone else have a SAD light? Do you like the one you have or do you find that it doesn't work?
