Winter blues are thought to affect at least 2 million Brits every year, and symptoms can range from lethargy and sleep problems to anxiety and irritability. Light therapy lamps are known to assist alleviate the symptoms of SAD, and this sleek tablet-size model is by far the most advanced we’ve ever tested. Not just a static light therapy lamp, it has 3 different colour temperatures which control a phased day-night rhythm to help you work, rest and sleep. The soothing, glare- and flicker-free LED lights segue from 7,000 lux for morning activities to a powerful 10,000 lux at midday, a level almost identical to genuine sunlight. It then moves to a relaxing and restful 3,000 lux for the evening. Exposure to this light helps block any increase of melatonin (the ‘sleep hormone’), so you should feel the benefit in as little as 10-14 days. You can use it for fatigue and jet-lag too, and its compact size slips easily into a travel bag.
