In the interest of not hibernating anymore this winter, I invested $10 in some daylight spectrum light bulbs at Costco. (Thanks for the tip, Melinda!) I’m now incubating under them while doing my daily blog checking and email writing and otherwise internet time-wasting before I gear myself up to get things done. (Yes, I know I’m getting to that incredibly late in the day. Hibernation, see?)

I was really sceptical about the things when I set them up last night. The white light fought with the yellow light from our regular bulbs, making the “daylight” bulbs look fluorescent.

Then I turned them on in the morning. The light from the lamps is exactly the same color as the light coming in through my window.

Maybe there’s something to this, after all.

I really, really hope this works.
