December’s Fitness Challenge, day 16

Once again I am challenging myself to 100 crunches a day in December.

I am generally a very joyful person, but without enough Vitamin D (i.e. sunshine), I find myself in an emotional slump… which can lead to me finding a “pick me up” with a cookie (or 4).

While I do things (like take extra vitamin D and exercise to create endorphins), it sometimes isn’t enough.

This article suggests using light therapy to help beat the winter blues… My dad’s mom, Nonna, used to have a full spectrum lamp & used it during the winter months.  She especially used it more as she got older and couldn’t get outside as much.

Do you have one? How do you like it?

I have full spectrum bulbs in a few lamps that I use fairly regularly. Partially because they help when knitting with darker yarns. I’ve been contemplating a therapeutic full spectrum lamp though. I just don’t know how to choose one.
