Benefits of Light Therapy

Light is nature's stimulant. Deprived of light, the body's natural cycles and functions are adversely affected. Light deprivation can disrupt sleep and concentration, increase appetite, and decrease sex drive. The HappyLight 5000 provides Natural Spectrum Daylight to prompt your body to naturally improve mood, energy, alertness, and well-being.

Safely Simulates Natural Sunlight

The HappyLight 5000 emits Natural Spectrum Daylight to simulate the patterns and spectrum of natural sunlight without any harmful UV rays. Emitting up to 5,000 LUX, the HappyLight 5000 is one of the most powerful and compact energy lamps available.

Convenient Design for Busy Lifestyles

Because the HappyLight 5000 delivers a moderate dose of light, it's ideal for both shorter sessions and all-day use. Its space-efficient tabletop design makes it easy to position anywhere in your home or office.

Simply position the light towards you while working or relaxing, and enjoy the natural, mood-enhancing effects of the HappyLight 5000. Use the brightness control to adjust the light to suit your needs. No matter what the setting, the HappyLight 5000's energy-efficient bulb uses only 36 Watts to produce 300 Watts of light.

Well, I didn't even know this thing was really called a Happy Light.

I really do like this as a mood enhancing secondary light if you are affected by the darker winters.
Tiger
I'm giving this product one star because it worked satisfactorily for a little over a year.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I tried this light to see if it would help improve anxiety and insomnia, the idea being that using it in the morning would help re-set the body's circadian rhythm and that natural sunlight could help alleviate anxiety during the long winter here in Montana. However, I believe it's main use is for Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).

Having used this light for several months, I've actually been really happy with it! Here are some of the pros and cons:

Pros:
-small & lightweight
-user friendly operation (just slide the switch)
-full spectrum mimics natural sunlight
-works great
-high and low brightness settings
-does not get hot with hours of use (just slightly warm)
-plastic filters out harmful UVB
-sturdy construction

Cons:
-a little expensive
-really REALLY bright, even on low setting (my husband hates its brightness!)
-plastic filters out harmful UVB (sometimes you want UVB!)

The UVB issue is both a pro and a con. You want it filtered out as it can cause skin cancer, but it's an important component of sunlight for mammals (like people), birds, and reptiles. So if you are seeking UVB, this will not work.

Having said that, my birds ADORE this light as well! I have medium-sized parrots who thrive on natural daylight for their emotional well-being. They seem to prefer this light over their full-spectrum UVB reptile light this winter, and they love it cuddling with this light when they are hanging out loose in my room. (Just keep the cord out of their reach!) I mentioned that this light has "sturdy construction" because except for having to hide the cord, it has proven parrot-proof, which is saying A LOT.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I really do like this as a mood enhancing secondary light if you are affected by the darker winters. It works best as something you just put on off to the side and still slightly in your field of vision, and leave it on for 2 hours while you work. I really do feel like my mood is lifted. However if you are in a place that you cannot use a device in your own privacy and don't want to draw attention from having a bright unshaded light, or if you need a more concentrated approach to fit in a short period of time such as during breakfast, you probably need to look into alternatives. Considering the cost compared to some stellar alternatives, you should compare the cost and value of alternatives. Depending on price fluctuation, a little more could buy you a stellar alternative. I personally see this as a great secondary device that I use after I use a better concentrated approach.

You should definitely look into a more concentrated approach like the Philips goLITE BLU Light Therapy Device which is very compact in comparison, more powerful, and does its work in 15 or 30 minutes while eating breakfast. You could easily use the Philips goLite in an office with minimal attention of others unless they come up from behind it or notice the blue glow it might reflect off surfaces. The goLite is directional light that you only see from the front. This light here is pretty much a fluorescent light with a special bulb that you wouldn't know was different by the light it throws, and shines all around like a lamp. So this one is nowhere as discrete as the goLite, and requires a lot longer exposure too.

Before you buy this product, read this review.

I always get the winter blues, especially living in Cleveland, Ohio. As soon as the sun starts shining more, I feel better.

So, I thought getting this light would be a great way to get some "sunlight" to make me feel better. I figured I'd turn it on in the bathroom while getting ready for work, and again in the evening while working on the computer or watching tv. It was not an easy decision, due to the price, but I thought I would try it.

After I unpacked the light all excited to try it, I read the pamphlet....

You need to sit in front of this light for HOURS--not 30 minutes, not 1 hour--think 4 hours within 3 feet of this light.

And you should not use it in the evening because it will disturb your normal sleep-wake cycle, keeping you awake at night!

So, unless you have a strict desk job, or have the time to sit in front of this light for 4 hours a day before 5pm, don't waste your money on this product!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've only had this lamp for three days, but I'm already noticing a difference in my office and my work. I don't have any windows so this light provides a bright sunshine-y feel to my office. My coworkers have all noticed it and like its effect on the room- it makes colors brighter and eliminates some of the yellowing effect of overhead fluorescent lighting.

Perhaps more important though is the psychological effect. I realize that this could be anecdotal (or even the placebo effect), but in the three days I've used the light I have been more focused and productive. I come into work early and it normally takes me a little while to get going. But not with this light on-- I accomplished more work and got more writing done in the first few hours of the day than normal. And I didn't experience the energy lull that usually comes after a few hours of writing. My energy level has stayed consistent throughout the day. I wasn't experiencing any depression prior to using it, so I don't know whether it will help others with that issue-- but I suspect it might. The brightness is certainly cheery.

The instructions recommend that you use the bright setting (which is quite bright-- I had to move the light about 2 feet away to keep it from glaring too much) in the morning and then switch to the dimmer setting (which is still quite bright) in the afternoon. That seems to work well for me.

I also like that it's simple to use. No assembly needed-- you just pull it out of the box, plug it in and turn it on. Presto-- instant indoor sunlight.

I'll keep using the light and update this review if the effect changes in any way. In the meantime, I highly recommend it particularly if you work in a windowless area and don't get a chance to go outside much.
