What is Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)?
Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) or ‘winter depression’ is linked to reduced exposure to sunlight, which may affect your production of melatonin, serotonin and disrupt your body’s functions and patterns. Melatonin is a hormone that makes you feel sleepy, and serotonin is a hormone that affects your mood, appetite and sleep. Lower serotonin levels are linked to feelings of depression. Your body also uses sunlight to time various important functions, such as waking up, so the lower light levels during winter may disrupt your body clock and lead to symptoms of SAD and general fatigue.

How can the light help combat the effects of SAD?
Using a SAD light for a few hours at a range of 23cm away will help increase your levels of serotonin and decrease your levels of melatonin, this in turn will brighten your mood and make you feel more awake – giving you more energy.

The LitePod mini SAD light has two fluorescent lights, with offer 10,000 lux light for an incredible 10,000 hours.

How close does the light pad have to be near your face

Asked by: Auld Jock
It is recommended to have the face during application of 20 to 50 cm away from the lamp. -At a distance of 20 cm from the lamp should be the length of exposure to about 1 hour. At a distance of 50 cm, should be the length of exposure to about 2 hours.

How effective as compared to the bigger types? The larger model LOOKS too big for my table, but on the other hand I don't want to buy a smaller one that won't be very effective.

Asked by: helen
They are effective when used as per the instructions.
