Default Feeling down in the dumps? Researchers say lighten up

The fun and spirit of the holidays are upon us.Seeing them end can be depressing, but for many itcan go a bit deeper than tha.

Yep, I agree that dim lighting can get you down. One thing that may help too, is to make sure your house is well lit. I hate dingy rooms, and 2 or 3 100 Watt bulbs is not too much ... real live incandescents too, the ones that come on right when you flip the switch ... the energy not used in producing light goes to produce heat, and so in the winter, that's not exactly wasted energy.

I recently switched to daylight-colored floursecent bulbs and now the rooms feel colder because the light doesn't seem to have any warming yellow/orange in it.

Nothing beats good old sunlight. I do agree, for me, rooms need bright bulbs with filaments.
