In brief: Absolutely
If possible get a full spectrum light and read or sit in front of it first thing in the morning for 30-40 minutes.

In brief: SAD therapy
Treatment for seasonal affective disorder may include light therapy, medications and psychotherapy.
If you have bipolar disorder, your doctor will be careful when prescribing light therapy or an antidepressant. Both treatments can potentially trigger a manic episode.
