Verilux HappyLight Lucent Review

This morning I woke up a little late (thanks to summer vacation and the kiddo is at home) rolled out of bed, with the frizziest bed hair I might add, and hobbled to the bathroom. I took my morning medications with a bottle of water, grabbed my phone and headed downstairs to check my messages in front of my HappyLight by Verilux.

I love sitting in the glow of my HappyLight while I check my messages, emails, and notifications, then I like to browse facebook and instagram for a few minutes as well. If my messages and notifications are short, than I pick up my crochet hook and do a little crocheting too.

You might think that I'm just playing on my phone but in reality, I am working as a crochet designer, blogger, youtuber, influencer and I'm getting a dose of light therapy from my HappyLight. After just 30 minutes, I can feel myself becoming more energized, I'm more optimistic and not as depressed and anxious as when I first woke up. I have several chronic illnesses, and for me, waking up is hard. As soon as my mind clears and I'm awake, the pain and reality set in. I'm sick, everyday. That's hard to accept and even harder to live with. I have to battle pain, the worst fatigue, a multitude of symptoms like hair loss, rashes, and more and with this comes depression, anxiety and panic attacks. I find that just 30 minutes in front of my HappyLight, a day really helps me. My morning blues have disappeared and it also helps combat the afternoon blues and fatigue that hit me as well. I was even able to get a load of laundry done last night before bed and that is unheard of for me.

I love using holistic and alternative treatments to battle my conditions and symptoms and how cool is a treatment that allows you to sit in front of a light for 30 minutes and it actually helps! The HappyLight Lucent LED delivers 10,000 lux that can helps to increase energy, mood, focus and sleep. 

Assembly is super easy and the instructions/photos are very helpful. First, remove the stand that is attached at the back of the light. Then clip the stand on as shown in the pictures.

The stand can be attached to allow you to use the light horizontal or vertical, depending on which way you prefer.

I  like to use mine horizontally.

Plug the power cord into the back and then carefully plug it into the electrical outlet. 

Push the button on either the top or the side, depending on how you have yours set up, and the light will come on for you to reap the benefits.

The instructions say to position the HappyLight slightly off center and within 6-24 inches to your face. You can relax with a book and read, do crafts like crochet, or you can use it while you are working at your desk. This light is very bright and can even be used to apply make-up and I've taken a few photos in front of mine too.

As long as your eyes are open and the HappyLight is directed at them, you should be receiving the benefits of this light, it's that easy!

I feel so blessed that the people at Verilux sent me this light to review, and I've been using it for a week now. I think it is well made, durable and it really works. I have felt so much happier, energized and I've been sleeping better too.
