If you tend to get the winter blues, it’s not just your imagination. Seasonal affective disorder (SAD)—a type of depression marked by low energy, sleeplessness, and apathy during the coldest, darkest months of the year—is a legit affliction that’s recognized by the National Institute of Mental Health.

But there’s hope on the horizon! Lamps that mimic the actual sun, but without all the harmful ultraviolet rays, are known to lift your mood and help you focus—and Amazon’s best-selling Miroco Light Therapy Lamp is 61 percent off, today only.

The sleek device—which resembles a pretty wooden picture frame—can prop on a shelf while emitting some serious feel-good energy. We’re talking a maximum of 10,000 lux, the professionally recommended “wattage” for lamps like this to effectively treat SAD by affecting brain chemicals.

The Mirico lamp uses LED light too, so it’s UV-free and energy-efficient. Place it next to your laptop while you work or perch it on your bedside table while you read yourself to sleep. It’ll help you focus when you need to, and will encourage nodding off when the time is right. Adjust the intensity to your liking—it has three brightness levels ranging from 10 to 100 percent—with just a gentle tap.

Light therapy doesn’t just treat SAD; it’s proven to help ease jet lag too, as well as sleep disorders and depression that’s not seasonal, according to the Mayo Clinic. Doctors routinely recommend sunlight-mimicking lamps as a natural way to regulate the system, even in cases of Vitamin D deficiency.

“Use it for just 10 minutes a day and you’ll be surprised at how your mood improves,” wrote one convert. “I cannot say enough good things about this light. Also it is small enough to be portable which is very convenient, it would fit anywhere in my apartment.”

“I usually struggle with early mornings, especially as the days get shorter and we creep into daylight savings. This little device has been tremendously helpful,” wrote another happy shopper. “I've been feeling more wakefulness in the mornings as I turn this on next to my work computer. As someone who struggles with SAD, I am beginning to feel like myself again...Thank you for creating a life-changing product!”

Soft, UV-free light, a sleek, modern design, and 61 percent off: Can you go wrong giving this little wonder? We think not. But get your hands on this device today—you’ll be happy you pocketed $43!
