2. Light Therapy

Light therapy involves exposing patients to bright lights of specific wavelengths in timed intervals, and it has been clinically proven to help patients with seasonal affective disorder (SAD), a type of depression which sets in during specific times of the year. The good news is that it may also help people with non-seasonal or chronic depression, with some research suggesting that it is just as effective as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs).
