Here Comes the Sun!

How about some song therapy to go along with your light box?

Sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy when skies are gray…To beat the blues, turn on some light and add some sunny tunes.

The Beatles wrote about a long cold lonely winter where it feels like years since the sun has been here. In places far from the equator (think Sweden, Norway, Ireland, United Kingdom, Canada, Maine, Montana…) the daylight hours are few and darkness has a way of taking over your psyche.

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun, and I say it’s all right

Little darling, it’s been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it’s been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it’s all right

Songs, additional light sources and conversation are things you can do now to alleviate your depression. Remember to involve others and let them know how you’re doing.

Sunny, yesterday my life was filled with rain.
Sunny, you smiled at me and really eased the pain.
Oh, the dark days are gone and the bright days are here,
my sunny one shines so sincere.
Oh, Sunny one so true, I love you.

When songs don’t do it for you – try to take a trip to sunny destination.
Sitting on the dockWhile you’re doing your travel research, turn on the light boxes as a way to remind you that the sun will return…eventually.

“All my bags are packed …I’m ready to go – Leaving on a jet plane…”

Save travels!
