I live in northern Indiana where we see very little sun from November through April. I have one of the lights but they really don't help any. I need to see the light outside my window and bright inside my house. A small light is not much help. I am retired now and just basically hibernate as much as possible during our long winters and count the days until May when we finally have some decent weather.
I would love to move to Florida but I don't tolerate heat well and I have other obligations here that I can not leave right now. Report
Thank you for this article. I used to get a mild form of SAD (I thought it was just cabin fever) but when I moved to Florida, it disappeared! Report
I did not know that treatment starts with about 45 minutes of light therapy. I got something called human charger. They're earbuds with lights on them. 15 to 30 minutes in the morning helped me the shortest days of winter. Report

As a California girl who loves to garden, I do find Winter to be way too long. No energy at all, seems to come back about April when the days clear up. Report
Thank you Report
interesting Report
thank you Report
I love all the Seasons as life is too short. After years of convincing myself that I had some disorder or another, I learned that I all I needed was to eat what my body required such good healthy macro and micronutrients opposed to another expensive prescription. Every season brings beauty. Report
I find winter challenging. Thanks for the info. Report

I have also found taking a vitamin D3 supplement daily this year to be helpful. Report
