Reviewing the Aurora LightPad Mini Light Therapy Box

Reviewing the Aurora LightPad Mini Light Therapy Box

Watch on YouTube 

Light therapy is a well-established treatment that can help with symptoms of: Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), Depression, Insomnia, Shift Work Sleep Disorder (SWSD), and other disorders and conditions impacted by the body’s sleep-wake cycle. The key factor in selecting a light therapy box is, at what distance does the light box produce an intensity of 10,000 Lux? There are many cheap light therapy boxes that obscure just how limited their range is (often only a few inches, which makes them impractical to use). I have been personally using the Aurora LightPad Mini (made by Alaska NorthernLights @AlaskaNL) for several years (as of this video), and with its range of 25 inches it is my favorite of the the light therapy boxes I have tried and/or researched. I use it every morning (including taking it with me when I travel), and I also have one at my office.

Note: I mentioned in the video there being a less expensive light box (that is larger, less portable and with less range) which I had used years ago, but upon checking it appears that currently there is hardly any price difference between it and the Aurora LightPad Mini so I am omitting the other light box entirely to avoid confusion, given that it provides no advantages/benefits over the Aurora.
