Lumiram HappyMood™ Mini Light Therapy Pad
Sunlight is an essential ingredient in life, but many of us don't get the amount of bright, health-stimulating light we need - especially during the darker months. As the days get shorter leading up to winter, we get less time under the bright sun which is necessary to keep our circadian cycles and health in balance.
Much more portable than our flagship light therapy unit, the Aurora™ light therapy system, you won’t have to think twice about getting your daily dose of bright therapeutic light with this practical light pad! You'll be able to bring this one with you everywhere!
Up to 10,000 lux of bright, white light in order to:
⚡️ increase energy and alertness
🌓 reset circadian rhythm and restore sleeping patterns
😊 improve mood
Plugin and use for up to 20-30 minutes a day to start feeling the energizing and balancing effects of bright light therapy anywhere you go!
You don't necessarily need to be suffering from SAD to use light therapy - anyone can use light therapy as an addition to their daily morning ritual! It's an effective way to get a boost of energy and alertness to get the day going!
This light pad provides:
Up to 10,000 lux of light
Full spectrum UV-free light
A choice of 3 light intensity levels to suit your needs and sensitivity
A built-in timer (10 min, 20min, 30min) so you can set and forget it
Compact size; carry with you anywhere: 9.25“H x 5.5“W x 0.6“D
To use: Light therapy is best used in the morning. While eating breakfast, getting ready, or sitting at your desk, place your light pad anywhere from 3-12 inches away from you, and to your side. The goal is for light to reach your eyes, without looking directly at the pad - it’s quite bright! Let it reach your open eyes peripherally. It's key that your eyes remain open for the duration of your session for light therapy to take proper effect.
If you wear blue light filtering glasses for screen/computer usage, we recommend taking them off during your light session for maximum benefit.
Try for 10 minutes at first to see how you respond; you should begin to feel a sense of alertness. If you start feeling jittery, that’s an indication to place the pad a little further away and/or to use it for less time. You’ll learn what your body needs over time!
If you have macular degeneration, vision sensitivity, or are particularly sensitive to lighting in general, you'll find fluorescent-based light therapy, such as our medical-grade Aurora® full spectrum light therapy system, to be more comfortable.
Note: We do not make medical claims. Please consult your physician or therapist to see if light therapy is right for you.

How it works
Our eyes detect the presence of light through specialized non-visual photopigments called melanopsin (a light-sensitive retinal protein). Melanopsin is most reactive to shortwave blue light, which, if activated by the presence of light, sends off a signal to our brain's hypothalamus. Within the hypothalamus, lies a cluster of cells (called the suprachiasmatic nuclei, or SCN) whose job it is to coordinate our daily cycles of behavior and physiology with our external environment.
Who it's for
The most common use of light therapy is to treat SAD, a type of seasonal depression during the fall and winter caused by a lack of sunshine. But you don't need to suffer from a clinical diagnosis of SAD to enjoy the stimulating benefits of bright light therapy: think of bright white light as a vitamin to be taken each day for optimal health and wellness!
