Philips GoLite BLU Energy Light

This past winter has been rough. The DC Metro area has suffered record snowfalls and it is not just our part of the country. Many areas have been inundated with more winter weather than we know what to do with. Those gray skies, cold temperatures, piles of snow and slush can lead to the winter blues too. No one likes to suffer from this form of depression, whether it is in November or in January. Philips asked me if I wanted to test out their new GoLite BLU Energy Light ($149) and I was all for it.

The GoLite BLU is small (14"x 14") in size but mighty in light. The glowing blue light is bright and should be placed at arm’s reach. I did this for fifteen minutes a day for a few weeks and actually noticed a difference in my mood. Initially it took about three days but when I skipped a day I realized that, my mood dipped down a bit and I quickly got back into my easy, GoLite routine. I would place the box (2.5" thick) on my desk first thing in the morning and let it work its magic as I checked my morning emails. If I was too busy for work, I simply placed it on the kitchen counter while I made breakfast, lunch or dinner. It is so compact and portable that I could place it anywhere at any time. It even comes with a sleeve to place it in so you can travel with it too. There is an on/off switch, treatment reminder, built-in clock and pause button on the display. This is no bulky light box like the one you are used to seeing. It is user-friendly and I quickly got the hang of it.

I will definitely be using my Philips GoLite BLU next winter to fight my winter blues and I am so glad that I get to share it with a lucky reader too. I am giving away ONE Philips GoLite BLU.
