Women make up 75% of those suffering from depression due to seasonal affective disorder (SAD), a condition that’s caused by shorter daylight hours in the fall and winter. The primary treatment is light therapy — and while I’ve played around with light therapy lamps in the past, the ones I’ve had were always horribly ugly and difficult to position to actually get the light to shine on your face. So I like the clean and simple look of this desktop light from Hammacher Schlemmer. Note that this sucker is pretty large (see the computer in the background of the picture!) but it could serve a second purpose as a document holder — just tape your paper to it and away you go. This one is $99. Hammacher Schlemmer Desktop Light Therapy Lamp
Ladies, do you have a favorite lamp to help with SAD?
