So since y’all have always been so nice to me, and we’ve been talking a lot about our issues and FEELINGS and the general losing of one’s shiz, and just…yeah…the dreariness that is Winter and the S.A.D-ness that it brings about. Oh wait! Stop. Do you know what S.A.D is? It stands for Seasonal Affective Disorder and if you live somewhere like Ohio, you probably know someone who has it.
Anyway, in celebration of saying goodbye and GOOD RIDDANCE to January (one month of winter down!-Woot), I thought I would ask my friends at Nature bright if they’d hook one of you lovely people up with your very own
S.A.D Happy lamp again.
And they said, “for you, our esteemed Kirsty Sayer of the brilliant Momedy Blog-ANYTHING”. Or they may have said, “yeah ok, sure.”
‘Cos they are cool like that. It’s all the happy light they are soaking up. I’m sure of it.
As you may remember, that thing changed my life. I used it religiously for a few Winters but for some reason this year, inexplicably, I forgot all about it. Actually last year too. I blame the baby. (For a lot, until she’s old enough to object). And not so surprisingly since forgetting about it, I have struggled with the S.A.D-ness ever since.
No more! After all the angst of late I suddenly realized…D’oh! I pulled my magical box out of my closet and am basking in the glow as we speak/write/read and despite the fact that I am incapacitated at this moment and in considerable pain (due to doing something reallllly stupid). I’m feeling perkier by the minute. And my friends, it is UGLY grey outside. Just not pretty. Even so, I’m feeling happier every second. I find it miraculous. Miraculous I tell you.
It’s Summer on my couch today…all blissed out- messed up back not withstanding..
As I have said in the past. Winter (with its accompanying grey darkness) tends to make me inclined to become a bear. As in literally. As in a bear going into hibernation. I start eating carbs like it’s my job-and so I begin to resemble a bear. I become as still as is humanly possible-like a bear does during hibernation. I actually feel paralyzed. I become anti-social (even more so than usual) and irritable (even more so than usual) not unlike a bear disturbed from hibernation. Ah how my family and friends love it. It’s just a special, special time for all of us.
A few years ago after hearing about them for ages, I finally broke down and got myself one of these marvelous things and people, my sweet, kind, good people I am not kidding you when I tell you it changed my life. Best $120 I ever spent. No lie. Behold the (cue: heavenly choirs)
NatureBright Sun Touch Plus light and Ion therapy
After this came into my life, I no longer started getting all melancholy in the Autumn because of what would surely follow…I lost a ton of weight (in the Winter!) my activity and energy levels became equivalent to what they were in the Summer (I am solar powered) . The beast, she was silenced. And the townspeople rejoiced. It was (have I mentioned?) magical and marvelous. And that is when I became evangelical in my zeal for this product and here we are.
I have referred to myself as the modern Florence Nightingale as I have been known to make house calls with this lamp to friends in similar distress (until they realized the magic for themselves and hustled to get their own lamp) and now I shall knight myself Flo of the Internet. Not quite the same ring but it works.
Let me just say, I am not getting paid or compensated in any way for this glowing (haha get it?) endorsement. Consider it a PSA. Consider it my gift to you by way of the generous folks at NatureBright (who really should be hiring me as their official PR spokesperson and sending me flowers for my birthday-February 6th if they are reading- for the vast amount of business/hype I have given them over the years and if you knew how much I hate selling stuff, you’ll know it’s that good. )
Here are some answers to FAQ’s I’ve had over the years. Or you can just check out the naturebright website.
But yeah, really and truly it’s that good. Since I like you guys and I like feeling good and assumed you do too, it seemed like a good fit during this, the most depressing time of year.
