The Verilux HappyLight is a great product for helping to fight seasonal affective disorder (SAD.) In winter, shorter days and a propensity for overcast weather often lead to people getting less sunlight. This lack of sunlight can lead to SAD, which includes meancholy moods and even depression in some people. The Verilux HappyLight is designed to emit light that counteracts the lack of sunlight, literally and figuratively brightening people's days through the winter.
Since SAD lights are often thought of as medical equipment, they tend to reflect that in their design, with utilitarian looks that can depress people more than the lack of sunlight. The Verilux HappyLight keeps attractive design in mind. Its sleek white lines fit with much of the technological devices on the market today, meaning that it can be left out on a counter or table without being an eyesore.
