How BLT Direct can help sufferers of SAD with their natural light bulbs

The lighting retailer BLT Direct is offering advice to sufferers of Seasonal Affective Disorder and suggesting some of their quality products to help alleviate symptoms during the winter months.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) affects thousands of people throughout the UK each year and is a form of depression caused by the changing of the seasons. Most sufferers report an increase in their symptoms during the winter months and often experience feelings of anxiety, depression, a lack of energy, panic attacks and overeating that have a detrimental impact on their wellbeing.

It has been reported that most people affected by SAD find their condition worsening during the darker parts of the year and receive some respite from their symptoms as the days become longer and lighter when the summer months approach.

Therefore, BLT Direct is drawing attention to the fact that some of their products have been suggested to help lessen symptoms and help sufferers through winter.

One of the key findings into SAD has shown that natural daylight has been proven to lift moods and provide relief from feelings of hopelessness. Although daylight hours are limited in the UK in the winter, BLT Direct stocks a wide range of light bulbs that help to replicate daylight inside the home.

Replacing bulbs that emit a soft, warm glow for daylight coloured lightbulbs can help provide the look and feel of daylight hours even on the darkest days; making for an easy and cost-effective way to help those with SAD reduce their symptoms.

These light bulbs are also highly energy efficient, meaning that users don’t need to worry about a significant increase in energy costs when using them in their homes.

Another useful product in the fight against SAD is the popular MiniSun White SAD Table Lamp that emits a daylight colour temperature with a high lumen output. The sleek design looks more like a tablet than a lamp, meaning that it is fully portable and can be used anywhere with mains power.
