Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) affects productivity and can affect interpersonal relationships at work and at home. In many cases, it causes a marked loss of interest in the day to day work challenges and activities. Seasonal changes influence mood changes which can threaten happiness, health, teamwork and productivity in the workplace. To add to this effect of darker days and reduced natural light, the current pandemic and intermittent lockdowns have created new challenges for employees working from their homes, shared accommodation and in some cases from their bedrooms.
Seasonal depression affects people at work in the office as well as the home working environment in many ways, including the following:
- Difficulty waking up in the morning
- Weight gain
- Decreased energy levels throughout the day
- Lower concentration levels
Our SAD lamps are being used by many multinational companies in their offices and most recently in their employee's homes. It is difficult to discern someone suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder just as it is with conventional depression, but it is simple to help prevent. Employers that value their employee's wellbeing can significantly contribute to their mental health as well as benefit from increased productivity and creativity with light therapy devices from Brighter Day.
