10 essential winter health tips
If you feel a bit low in winter – or if you suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), which has similar symptoms to depression – a lack of daylight could be part of the problem.
Light therapy can be really effective, especially if you’re unable to get a couple of hours’ natural daylight every day, and you can buy a special light box to sit in front of for recommended periods of time every day.
The light from a light box is at least 10 times stronger than ordinary indoor lighting and exposing yourself to it can considerably improve your mood and energy levels. Light boxes are available to buy from upwards of around £30.
