Taipei’s constant rain is really bringing down my mood. I want to invest in a SAD lamp (lights that have 10,000 lumens to imitate the sun) and see if that helps. Problem is that everyone I talk to, locals and expats alike, have no idea what I’m talking about.
Other than paying as much for shipping as the lamp itself off Amazon, does anyone know where I could get one (ideally locally)? Thanks!
Yes, thanks for running the search. That one’s only 1,000 lumens, so I’d need ten of them to be effective…and I worry about something that cheap…the SAD lamps I’ve seen in the US are all at least US$100. But I’ll check out your search parameters tomorrow; all this rain makes me want to sleep early
I have not. The ones on Amazon were all clearly from Chinese/Taobao sellers and I didn’t trust the product descriptions/reviews, which were all clearly written by non-English speakers. The stuff on Shopee looked even worse. Right now I just make a point of going outside at lunchtime, regardless of what the skies look like, and sitting by windows as much as humanly possible. Exercise and meditation help too
