I am really interested in this lightbox thing - I've heard of it and it makes sense to me. I read somewhere that if you surround yourself with ample light first thing in the morning (it had to be within 30 minutes of waking) it helps you to wake up and keep energy throughout the day.
I have experimented at home and it seems that when I do this it really works. I've noticed a difference between the days that I go into the bathroom in the morning and turn on every light source possible, just flooding the room with light while I'm doing the regular morning stuff in there compared to the days that I just brush my teeth in the weak morning light of the window and shuffle around the house without turning the lights on or opening the blinds.
I've never seen a lightbox - what do they look like, where can I find one and how much do they cost and by any chance would insurance cover it?
