Winter is coming - Seasonal affective disorder (SAD)
So its October now. The weather is getting colder. I broke out my autumn jacket and a few sweaters this week. Shits changing, as usual.
I just ordered a Philips hue lighting kit. Had my eye on this for a while but it was always a little pricey. Then noticed I could get a white version instead of the multicoloured version for about a third of the cost. i could even buy a multicoloured bulb to pair with it and it would still be a better deal. So i went for it.
My idea is to set up the bulbs to turn on gradually in the morning. Dark mornings just make me want to stay in bed and sleep more. I figured I could have these turn on automatically in the morning and gradually get brighter, simulating a sunrise for a nice gentle wakeup and make winter mornings feel less dark and gloomy. I'll try it out for a week and if it doesn't do what I want, I can just return it anyway.
