I own this light myself, and as an avid fan of using light therapy in the home to beat the blahs and focus my attitude, I am thrilled with the compact size and the ability to tuck it in a carry-on for a weekend trip.  The small unit can sit in a desk or kitchen table, generates no heat, and is safe for even children to use (check with your pediatrician for details.)  Use the Philips goLITE Blu for 15 – 45 minutes a day to boost energy and help improve mood with no interruption in your daily routine. (I use mine while working at the computer!) This light is popular among busy professionals, and you don’t need a medical RX to begin using it. Prices for the light range from $150 – 200.
