Fighting Seasonal Depression? These 5 Products Can Help, and They're All on Amazon
The cold, harsh days of Winter can make just about anybody feel sluggish, but for some of us, these long periods without sunlight can cause symptoms of seasonal affective disorder (SAD), more commonly known as seasonal depression. The science is actually relatively simple: a lack of natural light can cause levels of serotonin and melatonin to dip, disrupting your internal clock and negatively impacting your mood. While there are plenty of ways to manage the symptoms, many people find light therapy to be beneficial. If you're curious to try it, we've rounded up five products that can help brighten your home this Winter.

These NorbSMILE Advanced Full-Spectrum A19 LED Light Bulbs ($20) can be used in nearly any light fixture in your home to deliver a lower intensity, sunlight-like quality of lighting from sunrise to early evening.
Morning Ray Solana Wake-Up Light Alarm Clock
The Morning Ray Solana Wake-Up Light Alarm Clock ($81, originally $100) gradually fills your room with light, starting 30 minutes before your alarm, so you wake up naturally. It's just a happy bonus that the clock can charge your devices and play ambient sounds to help lull you to sleep.
