Day-Light Sky SAD Lamp

Rating: ★★★★½

The Day-Light Sky Light Therapy Lamp is much like the Uplift Technologies DL930, but with a very minor differences.  The Day-Light Sky is perfect for those want to have a non-portable light therapy lamp to sit on a desk or in an area where they can do a therapy session for 20-30 minutes.  Non-portable light therapy lights are often powerful and can get the job done quicker.  This lamp is height-adjustable, allowing you to alter the angle of light until you’re comfortable, and is also comes with two different settings at 5000 LUX and 10000 LUX.  It has a modern and contemporary design that shouldn’t clash with its surroundings.

Where To Buy?

I’d highly recommend buying it from Amazon.com (check current discounted price), they have it for nearly 25% off and it’s consistently cheaper there than most of the other retailers or dealers who sell the Day-Light Sky.  You also don’t have to worry about shipping costs because you can have it shipped to you for free.  Over 40 people have left reviews for it on Amazon as well, which suggests many people are consistently buying it from Amazon as well.

Who’s It For?

The Day-Light sky should be used by those who have issues with recurring depression during certain times of the year, also known as seasonal affective disorder.  However, it’s known that it can be very helpful to battle general depression, low energy levels, and problematic sleeping cycles.

This specific lamp is perfect for someone who has a routine where they can fit 20-30 minutes of light therapy sessions into their day while they do some work, read a book, watch some TV, or use the computer.

How Should It Be Used?

It’s well known that 10000 LUX is the optimal exposure level at about 12 inches of distance from your face.  LUX is a measurement of how well a lamp can light a certain area depending on its size.  For this lamp, it can illuminate 12 inches with 10000 LUX.  You shouldn’t stare into the lamp and you should sit too far back.  Sitting too far back will require you to have longer sessions.  Here is a good guide on how to use it properly.
