A light therapy box mimics outdoor light. Researchers believe this type of light causes a chemical change in the brain that lifts your mood and eases other symptoms of SAD.
Generally, the light box should:
- Provide an exposure to 10,000 lux of light
- Emit as little UV light as possible
Typical recommendations include using the light box:
- Within the first hour of waking up in the morning
- For about 20 to 30 minutes
- At a distance of about 16 to 24 inches (41 to 61 centimeters) from the face
- With eyes open, but not looking directly at the light
During light therapy, sit or work near a light therapy box. To be effective, light from the light box must enter your eyes indirectly. The box gives off bright light that mimics natural outdoor light. Most people with Seasonal Affective Disorder begin treatment with light therapy in the early fall, when it typically becomes cloudy or rainy for a prolonged period in many regions of the country. Do not fear, LUXOR light box does not emit high frequency radiation.
Tips: Use the light regularly at about the same time each day. Also try to spend time outdoors during sunny periods. Eat sensibly, exercise and try to keep regular sleep-wake hours.
If you feel you want to or should try light therapy for non-seasonal depression or another condition, talk to your doctor about how light therapy can be most effective. You can actually begin to feel noticeably better within just 2 to 4 days after beginning light therapy, with benefits continuing to accrue for several weeks!
