    What Is Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD?
    What are the links between light and seasonal depression? Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a specific type of recurring depressive illness that manifests in an annual pattern. Usually, it begins in early to late fall. It lasts throughout the winter. It only subsides with the longer, sunnier days of spring.

    Some people have a milder form of seasonal affective disorder known as subsyndromal-SAD (S-SAD). This mild form is also called the winter blues. This mild “winter blues” form causes minor problems in people’s lives but not the total disruption that full-blown SAD causes.

    Subsyndromal-SAD, as well as the disorder most people simply call seasonal affective disorder, or SAD, are actually both classified as a disorder called Winter-SAD. This is because this disorder occurs in winter and in the months surrounding winter.

    But Winter-SAD is not the only subtype of seasonal affective disorder. Another subtype is Summer-SAD. As its name suggests, this subtype of SAD occurs in the spring and summer months. Summer-SAD is much rarer than Winter-SAD. It is less well researched, and its cause is undetermined.Throughout this website, unless otherwise noted, the term “SAD” refers specifically to Winter-SAD. The two subtypes of seasonal affective disorder share a distinct link, however, between changes in natural light and seasonal depression that can be severe or mild.

    At SunBox, the mission is to help people lead healthier, happier lives.
    SunBox accomplishes this by providing excellent, reliable products at fair prices. They also strive to be as courteous and responsive as possible to the individual needs of their customers, without whom there would be no business. The hope is that, through light therapy lights and exemplary customer service, SunBox products can assist in improving the level of happiness in people’s lives. What could be better than that?

     

    SUGGESTED USE

    Most people use their SunBox light boxes as sources of bright light during the fall and winter months. Some people use them on overcast days at any time of year, or when their schedules or surroundings do not allow much exposure to natural sunlight. Sun Boxes are also used by people working night shifts. Most people use light in the morning. If you use light too late in the day, it may disturb your sleep.

    To use a SunBox, the light should be in front of you, angled so that the light shines onto your face, and your eyes should be open. It is not necessary to look directly into the light; most people read, eat, or watch TV while using their SunBox. Eyeglasses or contact lenses may be worn, but heavily tinted sunglasses will reduce the amount of light received.

    Average use at the 10,000 lux distance is roughly 20-30 minutes per day. At 5,000 lux, that would be the equivalent of 40 minutes to I hour. At 2,500 lux, the light might be used for two to three hours. Actual time for a particular individual will vary. It usually takes some experimentation to find a routine that is right for you.

    MANUFACTURER INFO

    The SunBox Company

    The SunBox Company has been in the SAD light business for over 25 years. We have built our reputation on building relationships, not just on selling SAD lamps. While other companies are only interested in selling light boxes, our goal is to help people live healthier, happier lives by providing professional attention. We help people decide on the best light therapy product for their particular needs.

    In the early 1980’s, Neal Owens was diagnosed with seasonal affective disorder (SAD)—a newly identified medical disorder. Owens contacted the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), as they were conducting investigations into treating this newly identified problem with an experimental treatment called “bright light therapy.” They asked him to work with NIMH to develop a light box for their research that was safe, durable, and effective.

    As people left the study at NIMH, those who responded well to bright light therapy were referred to Owens so they could special-order SunBoxes for use at home. This is how The SunBox Company began. Founded in 1985, we were incorporated in 1987.

    Not only are we the original bright light box company, but we are recognized worldwide as a leader in light therapy products, with over 30 years of proven safety and efficacy.
