Sorry 'bout that. I know that Winter can get you down. I try make sure I accomplish certain things. Then when I kick back I tell myself it's OK to fall asleep.

I've not gone LED yet, still have fluorescents to go through.

Yes, you did make my light bulb shopping more complicated. I do prefer softer lighting, but I will change to full spectrum lights for winter. I am glad you pointed out that they come in the LED. I do need to be kind to the environment. On a side note, I haven't thought about Kelvin temperature since reading a Wrinkle In Time. Let's not talk about how long ago that was : )

Just Believe!

Sorry. In lighting the "k" is the Kelvin color temperature. This was primarily fluorescent but now applies to LEDs as well. The higher the "k" or color temperature, the brighter the light. your hear of cool white, warm and bright. Each has a lighting purpose, but if you are looking for help in the dark winter the higher "k" ratings will be better for you.

Now I just added more complications to you light bulb shopping, my bad.

I am not understanding about the lighting when you refer to "k". Are you refering to kilowatts, lumens, or perhaps full spectrum lights? Sorry, I don't me to sound silly, but I don't know a lot about lighting to begin with. The last lightbulbs I purchased were LED, and I must say it took me a while to figure them out.

You are spot on where the vitamins are concerned. The doctor tested me for vitamin D3 deficiency and a few other deficiencies as well. I have been consistently low in these areas, and was told what to take by my doctor.

I do need to get into the habit of turning on the lights before I sit down. I fall asleep otherwise. I am also looking into purchasing Avalanche sportswear as well. I want to walk outside as long as I can, but I don't handle being cold well. I do need to find a good pair of boots that can handle ice, too. Thank you for your helpful suggestions!

Just Believe!

Lighting helps. Open curtains and blinds, get out during the day. If you use any fluorescent bulbs upgrade them to a 5000k. Mostly people have 2700k or 3400k. The 5000k is more like daylight.
Once it's dark outside I close the blinds and turn on lights inside. Then make sure the tasks that need to be done are still done. It's to easy to let myself call it a night just because it's dark outside. You don't have to leave every light on in the house, but turn on an extra in the room. Then turn them off when you leave.

Also a read on vitamins, I don't want to be making recommendations.

With the weather changing and the light dimming, I am really struggling. I have found my self wanting to eat just to warm up, or energize myself. I am trying to think of ways to trick my brain into thinking it is still summer. I haven't had a lot of success with this yet. If you have any tips you would like to share, I woud appreciate them. A few others might too!

Just Believe!
