Beating the Winter Blues

It's the end of January and it's still warm and rainy -- yuck! What happened to the lovely, cold, dry weather that is so good for my sinus/allergy problems? The weather cold enough for me wear all my favorite snuggly sweaters? SIGH.

I've found one thing that makes the yucky weather more bearable: a Go Lite by Apollo Health for seasonal affective disorder. I think it's only for mild seasonal depression, not clinical depression, but you can read more about it on the web site.

We shopped around on the 'net and paid much less than the $200 listed on the web site. Mine is not programmable, like this picture, which might be why it was so much less expensive.

I've been using my Go Lite for about half an hour each morning, usually when I'm reading the news, weather, e-mail, etc., and having my morning caffeine and it really seems to help.

The real good news: we have 47 minutes more daylight than we did at this time in December.
