We think you’ll agree 2020 has been a pretty tough year already, but now we are entering the darker winter months, it’s easy to feel the effects of seasonal affective disorder (SAD).
The lack of natural sunlight in the mornings and evenings has a big impact on your wellbeing and can effect your mental health without you even realising what’s going on. And we wouldn’t be surprised if lockdown has messed your sleep cycle up a little bit or made you feel more tired during the day.
Cue SAD lamps: alarm clocks specifically designed to gently wake you up with ambient light, slowly increasing in intensity to ease you out of sleep by emulating the rising sun, which sounds way better than being violently awoken by our alarm clock every morning.
Thanks to Amazon Prime Day, quite a few SAD lamps are now discounted heavily, helping you save money on a new alarm clock scientifically proven to improve mood, help you wake up better and combat SAD.
To make the most of these deals though, you should sign up to Amazon Prime, which will unlock all the exclusive offers while the sale is still on.
