We ask that you keep the original shipping materials to reuse in case of return, as this is the best way to ensure that the unit will not be damaged in transit back to us.

Most people use their SunBox® light boxes as sources of bright light during the fall and winter months. Some people use them on overcast days at any time of year, or when their schedules or surroundings do not allow much exposure to natural sunlight. People working night shifts also use SunBoxes®. Most people use light in the morning. If you use light too late in the day, it may disturb sleep.
To use your SunSation®, you will need to insert the wire stand into the bottom of the light fixture (the side below the SunSation® label)—there are two holes there that the top of the stand must fit into. The stand should be inserted so that the white line on the wire is flush with the bottom of the unit and the unit securely fits on the stand (it should not flop forward or backward on the stand). The light should be placed on the stand so that the light shines down on the user for the most comfortable use. See Figure (1) for the proper angle.
For your light session the light should be in front of you so that the light shines onto your face and your eyes should be open. Your unit will reach full brightness within a few minutes of being turned on. It is not necessary to look directly into the light; most people read, eat, work on computers or watch TV while using their SunBox. Eyeglasses or contacts may be worn, but heavily tinted glasses will reduce the amount of light received.
Average use at the 10,000 lux distance is roughly 20-30 minutes per day. At 5,000 lux, that would be the equivalent of 40 minutes to 1 hour. At 2,500 lux, the light might be used for two to three hours. Actual time for a particular individual will vary. It usually takes some experimentation to find a routine that is right for you.
