The Lamp Therapy

Been a busy day today. I cooked, I baked, I washed the dishes (actually the dishwasher did most of it, but I did wash some utensils that couldn't fit in it), I did the laundry, vacuumed the house and mopped it. Plus I also exercised just now. Now fresh from shower. I think the lamp therapy is working HA HA HA HA HA...

Before I had my lamp and kaamos (the dark winter days) started coming, I felt lethargic and I just didn't want to do anything. I didn't even feel like cooking. I bought some ready-made food from the store and just heated it up. I didn't want to exercise nor did I want to do anything much. My brain was like half empty and it didn't feel nice.

The lamp arrived a few days ago. R2 took it 'coz it was too big for me to carry on my bike (or on foot). I ordered Philips HF 3319 (you can google it up if you want to) and the first day I had it, I used it at around 4.30 pm. It made me energetic enough that it was hard to fall asleep at night HA HA HA HA HA...

So I learned my lesson!!! The next day I had a morning shift, so it was a perfect time to use before I went to work. I sat next to it in the kitchen while eating my breakfast and reading Donald Duck (Finnish version, mind you) for about 20 minutes and it felt nice. I didn't crank it up to its full "brightness", though, 'coz I couldn't stand it if I had to sit too close to it, but it was no problem. It helped even though I didn't turn the knob to the full brightness level. I've been using it for 4-5 days now and I must say that it makes me feel normal again. I go to work with my full brain capacity instead of just half of it. I feel more enthusiastic and energized to exercise.

So I guess I can safely say GOODBYE SAD!!! I sure won't miss ya!!! HE HE HE HE...
