(ENDED) Verilux HappyLight Energy Lamp – #Giveaway
|April 23, 2015||Posted by Tracy Knutsen under Be Healthier, Giveaways|
I’ve recently injured my Achilles heel. You know what they say…it’s all fun and games until someone winds up in a walking cast. After six weeks of that mess, I had to move into the super fun physical therapy phase. Yikes. I was surprised at how weak my ankle had become in such a short time and my stamina had decreased after not being able to walk as much as I had been. Angie and Colleen, my physical therapists, worked with me and showed me how to strengthen and tighten everything back up.They were amazing (hey y’all!) but it was exhausting. As I continue to do the therapy at home, I’m also increasing my walking again. Between that and working in an office, sitting at a desk all day, I’m found that was so tired and didn’t have the same energy I used to.
Hold up! I don’t have time for this right now and really need to focus on stamina. I have a big trip coming up in May (more on that soon!) and need to be ready. Verilux was kind enough to send me this energy lamp to try out (opinions expressed are my own) and they want to give you one, too!
The Verilux HappyLight Liberty 10,000 LUX Natural Spectrum Energy Lamp provides up to 10,000 LUX of full spectrum light (scotopic light measured at 10 inches), the highest recommended output for addressing seasonal change, the “Winter Blues” (a subclinical form of Seasonal Affective Disorder [SAD]) or the effects of shift work, jet lag, malaise or fatigue. Balanced Natural Spectrum Daylight taps the potency of light to gently cue your body to recalibrate and stabilize, naturally reducing fatigue and lethargy while improving focus. No two people view and react to light in the same way, so this energy lamp provides the flexibility to customize the light to meet your needs. High-Low intensity controls, interchangeable lenses and a tilt feature give you the maximum flexibility to design the program that works best for you. A broad field of up to 10,000 LUX* of light provides a more flexible program, allowing you to be farther from the lamp and to move around more freely during use.

I started using this for a few minutes a day at my desk at the office. (My co-workers were pretty intrigued!) After I got used to it, I started using it at home while continuing my exercises from physical therapy and during some bits of yoga and “walking away the pounds.” I could really tell a difference in the amount of energy I had – even after just a few days. I had no idea that this kind of light had that much effect on my mood, my sleep…everything. I typically shun going out in the sun – I’m a melanoma survivor – but I feel perfectly safe with this light source and will definitely be incorporating it into my indoor activities and exercising.
