Do those full spectrum light bulbs truly work? Do they really simulate daylight and make you feel happier during the winter?
I don’t know, but it sure looks like my cat, Livvy, loves the light.
I’d heard that these full spectrum lights help Northeasterners cope with dreary winters; studies show that depression and winter illnesses are linked to lack of sun exposure during the winter months. I don’t know about that, but I’ll take a full spectrum light any day. Sunlight rocks. The light is exceptionally bright; I like it. I have the bulb in this metal pink desk lamp that looks like it belongs more in Easter baskets ideas for kids than my stately black-topped desk. And the light is hindered by the thick metal housing of the lamp. But I DON’T WANT to BUY another lamp! I’ll make do.
Eventually, I’ll try to get more of these bulbs and place them in the ceiling lights in the big rooms (living room, dining room). They are unfortunately a little pricey, so I’ll have to save up.
In the meantime, Livvy is hogging my desk space to get under the lamp. It does generate a bit of nice heat.
