In brief: Improved mood
Exposure to light therapy for various amounts of time has been shown to improve mood.
To determine whether there is benefit for you, try to observe patterns in your mood. If your episodes are related to cloudy and rainy days, light therapy may be beneficial. Exercise that raises your heart rate, gets you moving and breathing deeply will also help lift your mood.
