The best SAD lamps for surviving the winter blues
With prices ranging from £45 to £179
Redstone SAD light box
At 48cm tall, this light box is a little larger than some, but its foldable stand makes it ideal for placing on a desk when working from home.
With ten dimming states and four timer settings, Lifemax’s portable LifeLight is a great, well-priced all-rounder.
Beurer TL30 SAD light
This slim, lightweight lamp is similar in size to a Kindle, so you can slip it into a bag and bring it out when needed for a little dose of sunshine.
Lumie Desk lamp
Lumie is one of the leading makers of SAD lamps. Its light therapy desk lamp is compact and flexible and provides 10,000 lux of simulated natural daylight at a distance of 20cm.
Lumie Brazil Large SAD Light Therapy
For a more powerful daylight-simulating effect, the Brazil is the biggest in Lumie’s range: it provides 10,000 lux at 35cm. In other words, you can sit a bit further away from it and still get the benefits.
